|The Board of Trustees of Chinook's Edge School Division is concerned with the current content, the process, and the rollout plan for Alberta Education's proposed K-6 Curriculum. The Board is also very concerned with the timing given its impact on students and staff in the midst of a pandemic.|
The Central Office Leadership Team has conducted a thorough analysis of the draft curriculum and will be delivering their findings directly to Alberta Education as their contribution toward a workable curriculum. They will be providing feedback on all seven subject areas of the draft curriculum. The Central Office Leadership Team will also be submitting a proposal that, if accepted, would assist the government in making necessary improvements to the present draft curriculum which could allow for further engagement in the fall.
The Board is unified in the decision that Chinook's Edge will not be able to pilot the proposed K-6 curriculum in its current form.
