ASBA supports better integration of skills training and development

Alberta School Boards Association - Following the provincial government announcement this morning on Future Ready, the initiative to coordinate and improve education and skills training for Alberta learners, the President of the Alberta School Boards Association (ASBA), Helen Clease, issued the following statement on behalf of the Association:

“As the association representing all 61 publicly-funded school boards in Alberta, we believe that a key factor in student success throughout a learner’s life is better integration of K-12 and post-secondary education, skills training and knowledge development.

“We are pleased to see that all Albertans – including parents, guardians, students and school communities – will have the opportunity to participate in an online survey on curriculum redevelopment.

“Locally-elected school boards play an important leadership and partnership role in bringing the community voice to the table, and we are looking forward to collaborating and sharing our perspectives in genuine consultation.

“We encourage everyone, including boards, parent councils and communities to respond and participate in this survey before the November 18, 2016 deadline and make their views known. Alberta school boards are committed to providing the best opportunities for our students, and building on what is already widely recognized as a world-class education system. We want to ensure an education in Alberta meets the needs of learners today, and well into the future.”
