PLEASE NOTE - NEW Information January 2021

ASCA Amended Business Model & Fees for Service

Alberta Education previously provided ASCA with funding to deliver development workshop services (at no cost) to School Councils and School Divisions in Alberta.

The governments’ decision to eliminate this funding, compelled the ASCA to develop a fee structure for the provision of workshop services.

ASCA has developed a new business model with fees for service that will enable the Association to continue to provide development services and resources to all school councils and school divisions in Alberta delivered at the same level (if not better), as before.

Effective immediately, and for the remainder of the 2020-2021 school year (June 30, 2021), ASCA will charge fees for workshop service deliveries – NOT related to the Assurance Framework and/or Professional Practice Standards for Leaders. Alberta Education did provide limited funding specific to these two focus areas.

Three (3) ASCA workshops have been modified to include elements to ensure school councils and key stakeholders have the knowledge and ability to support the implementation of the new Assurance Framework and Professional Practice Standards for Leaders, and will be delivered at no cost.

All workshops are delivered online utilizing the Zoom webinar platform.

ASCA Workshops (1.5 hour) available at no cost are:
