Important notice for parents

Alberta Education and Peace River School Division invite you to play a vital role in your child's education by completing the Alberta Education survey. Your participation is very important to us - it impacts school and divisional planning which directly affects your child's educational experience.

When and how do I complete the survey?
The survey will come through Canada Post during the months of January and February along with a postage paid return envelope.

What happens with the survey data? 
The survey data is reviewed by school staff, management staff, the Board of Trustees and the Alberta government to see what's working and what we can improve.

Who completes the survey?
The survey is administered to all parents and students in grades 4, 7 and 10 (unless the school has fewer than 120 students in grades 4 - 12 in which case the survey will be expanded to include all students and parents in grades 4 and above). All certificated teachers complete the survey.

When will the results become public?
Survey results are available to school divisions in May 2016.

What are ways parents can be involved in educational decision making?
- conversations with teachers and administrators
- completion of the Alberta Education Survey
- involvement in your child's School Council
- opportunities for parent representation on school and divisional committees

This data is very important to us and helps to provide students with the best educational experiences possible. Thank you in advance for time spent completing the survey. Your input and involvement makes our schools great places to grow, learn and be.
