To limit the potential spread of COVID-19 within the division, the Board voted to cancel all extracurricular travel and competition with other schools until further notice. Schools may offer students in-house practices as per cohort guidelines.

Annual Education Results Report

The Annual Education Results Report provides an analysis of the division’s four outcomes defined by the province:

  • Alberta students are successful
  • First Nations, Métis and Inuit students in Alberta are successful
  • Alberta has excellent teachers, school leaders and school authority leaders
  • Alberta’s K-12 education system is well governed and managed

Results are measured and given an evaluation of excellent, good, acceptable, issue or concern.

Of the 16 accountability pillar measures, the division had excellent results in providing a safe and caring environment, quality of education, parental involvement, preparing students for work and citizenship. 

*Only one area was identified as an issue — Diploma Exam Participation Rate (4+ Exams). The numbers are impacted by the population of Vista Virtual students who only access a few courses to support their high school completion.

See full details in the 2019-2020 Annual Education Results Report.
