Alberta Education previously provided ASCA with funding to deliver learning opportunities, supports and services (at no cost) to School Councils and School Divisions in Alberta.

In 2021, the government changed to a direct funding approach.

Alberta Education now provides funding directly to school councils through the Alberta School Council Engagement (ASCE) Grant to enhance collaboration between parents and schools on education priorities. This grant gives each school council in the province $500 per year under the new direct funding approach.

Alberta Education provides the funding to School Divisions who provide each of their school councils with the $500. Individual school councils are responsible to book learning opportunities, and services directly with ASCA.

Learning Opportunities are delivered to school councils (regardless of ASCA Membership status) in a fee structure aligned with the Alberta School Council Engagement (ASCE) Grant.

This funding to school divisions for each school is to support school councils fulfilling their legislated responsibilities in the education system and enhancing parent involvement and engagement.

Activities that grant funds can be used for include ASCA learning opportunities such as the annual conference, and customized services for parents to increase capacity for school council members.

ASCA learning opportunities are designed to help school councils understand their legislated role, and enhance parent engagement in the school community.
