The Alberta government released the ministry annual reports for 2014/2015.

 

The Ministry of Education’s Annual Report contains performance measurement results, achievements in key priority areas and consolidated financial statements for 2014/2015. The report is available online at http://education.alberta.ca/department/annualreport/2014-2015/.

 

Performance highlights include the following:

  • Public and stakeholder satisfaction with the quality of education remains high.
  • Continued high level of agreement among students, parents, teachers and school board trustees that their school provides a safe, caring and healthy learning environment.
  • The five-year high school completion rate improved to 82.1 per cent from 81.7 per cent the previous year, while the three-year high school completion rate increased significantly to 76.4 per cent (as compared to 74.9 per cent last year).
  • More work needs to be done to close the achievement gap for First Nations, Métis and Inuit (FNMI) students. The dropout rate for FNMI students is 8 per cent, which is more than twice the rate for all students in the province (3.4 per cent).
