Accountability Pillars

Since the introduction of the renewed funding framework in the mid 90s, Alberta Education has required school boards to publish, annually, the results achieved through its Accountability Pillar. The purpose of this Pillar is to increase emphasis on achieving outcomes, reporting results, and using results for informed decision-making to improve programs and student results in subsequent years. In early May, an interim report is provided to boards for use in preparing their education plans. A complete report is provided in early October when the achievement test and diploma exam results are available. The updated report is published in boards’ Annual Education Results Reports.

Recognizing the value of this transparent system, during the 2009 -2010 school year the jurisdiction developed an RVS Accountability Pillar to ensure the progress and achievements of its “made in Rocky View” Three Year Plan also were reported and used by schools to improve results. Presented below are the 2014-2015 statistics available for both Rocky View Schools' and Alberta Education's Accountability Pillars.
