ACCOUNTABILITY PILLARS: Explanation
The Alberta government has a system for school authorities to consistently measure success and progress, called the Accountability Pillar.
The Accountability Pillar uses 16 measures that show communities how schools and school authorities are performing each year.
Schools and school authorities use the results to identify areas for improvement and to help build their education plans. See below for our 2020 results.
