Results of Parent Survey concerning Elementary Achievement Reporting
IMPROVING ACCOUNTABILITY PILLAR RESULTS
The recently released Accountability Pillar results from the annual survey conducted by
Alberta Education contained some good news for Wild Rose Public Schools!
Significant improvements were shown in several areas:
• High school completion rates, drop out rates
• Provincial Achievement Tests results
• Rutherford Scholarship eligibility, and
• Diploma Exam participation rates
“These results are the product of three years of hard work by everyone in the system,”
notes Superintendent, Brian Celli. “While there is still more work to be done, there is every
reason to expect this improvement trend will continue.”
A full analysis of results will be released in the fall.
