As an annual check-up on the education system, the Accountability Pillar provides an
opportunity for Alberta Education and school authorities to ensure that we are equipping
students for success.
The Accountability Pillar uses a set of 16 indicators. Data on these indicators consists of
surveys of students, parents and teachers on various aspects of education quality, student
outcomes such as dropout and high school completion rates, and provincial assessments
of student learning.
From January to March 7th, Alberta Education will be conducting the annual
Accountability Pillar Survey.
 In January, parents of students in grades 4 & 7 should have received a survey from Alberta Education.
 In February and early March, students in grades 4 and 7 and all teachers will be completing their surveys online at school.
All surveys are anonymous and ask questions about experiences with your school. In
addition to English and French, the parent survey is available in Chinese, Punjabi,
Arabic, Blackfoot, Dene, Cree, Korean, Spanish, Tagalog and Urdu.
Your participation in the survey helps provide important information on the quality of
education your child is receiving.   If you haven’t done so already, we encourage you to complete the online survey before March 7th.
Survey results will be available to school authorities in May 2019, and will be reported
publicly as part of their 3-Year Education Plans and Annual Education Results Reports.

About the OurSCHOOL Student Survey:
