New online tool provides parents with information about what their child is learning.

Parents can now access a new, easy to use online tool that will allow them to get information about what their child is learning and how their child might be assessed for every subject and grade level at school.

The online tool was developed in consultation with the Alberta School Councils' Association, the Fédération des parents francophones de l'Alberta, and with parents across the province who participated in online surveys and focus groups throughout the product's development. Parents said that they wanted plain language descriptions about subject matter as well as the ability to link to the resource via mobile devices such as smart phones.

Alberta is the first jurisdiction in Canada to create an interactive, online tool of this kind for parents. The move to an online tool with advanced customized features gives parents greater flexibility to create an individualized learning profile for their child based on grade and subject level. The new online tool replaces the printed materials, the Curriculum Handbooks for Parents and the Curriculum Summaries.

Parents and others can explore the resource at in English and in French.

The Alberta government sees parents as valuable partners in shaping the future of Alberta's education system. Creating a stronger voice for parents in the education system is a key component of the Minister's 10-Point Plan for Education.
