New Public Engagements to Strengthen Draft K-6 Curriculum

The Peace River School Division has received correspondence from Alberta’s Education Minister, Adriana LaGrange, about providing another way for Albertans to share specific, constructive feedback on the draft K-6 content and the draft Social Studies design blueprint.

From January 31 to February 28, 2022, Albertans can participate in virtual engagement sessions to have their say through focused conversations on the draft K-6 curriculum.

They are providing up to 44 engagement sessions across five regions: North, Edmonton and surrounding area, Central, Calgary and surrounding area, and South. This regional approach will enable communities to share local insights and unique perspectives. While Albertans are encouraged to participate in their region, they have the flexibility to attend any session that works best for them.

During each session, one draft K-6 subject or the draft K-6 Social Studies design blueprint will be considered. The sessions will feature focused, small group conversations facilitated by independent engagement specialists to ensure balanced two-way dialogue. Albertans can sign up for notifications about upcoming engagements and register for sessions at alberta.ca/curriculum-have-your-say.

This spring, they will carefully consider the feedback from all engagement opportunities, education partners and classroom piloting. This valuable insight will be used to finalize the Social Studies design blueprint, develop the corresponding draft Social Studies curriculum, and further revise all subjects in the draft K-6 curriculum.

Please read the news release from the announcement for more information.

Thank you in advance for your thoughtful feedback.
