Principal's Message

Accountability Pillar Survey

Dear Parents/Legal Guardians:
From mid-January to the end of February, Alberta Education will be conducting the annual Accountability Pillar Survey.  Before the end of January, parents/guardians of students in Grade 7 will receive their survey in the mail from Alberta Education.  The envelope includes a self-address return envelope; however, if it is simpler for families to return it directly to the school, we will mail the survey results back to Alberta Education on your behalf. During this same time period, students in Gr. 7 and all teachers will complete their surveys online at school, led by the school administration.
All surveys are anonymous and ask questions about experiences with our school.  All parents/guardians receive the English version of the survey in the mail. Alberta Education also provides the survey in Arabic, Blackfoot, Chinese, Cree, French, Korean, Punjabi, Spanish, Tagalog and Urdu.  If you would prefer to respond to the survey in one of these languages, please contact the main office for a hard copy.
The Accountability Pillar uses a set of 16 indicators consisting of surveys of students, parents/guardians and teachers on: various aspects of quality; student outcomes such as dropout and high school completion rates; and provincial assessments of student learning.  If you “Don’t Know” the answer to a particular question, please skip that question and go to the next one, unless you want your response to count as a negative one.  It is preferable that you not answer any question with “Don’t Know”.
It is very important that parents/guardians complete the survey and return it to Alberta Education. Alberta Education and the public use the results of the Accountability Pillar Survey to assess satisfaction with the quality of education in our schools.  In addition, the Calgary Board of Education uses the information to improve teaching and learning for your children. Survey results for 2019-2020 will be available to school authorities in May 2020, and will be reported publicly as part of their 3-Year Education Plans and Annual Education Results Reports.  As a point of reference, I am including the Woodman 2018-2019 Annual School Results Report to this email, which is also posted to the school website; it highlights the school’s successes and areas of identified growth last school year:
Your voice matters. Your participation in the survey helps provide important information on the quality of education your child is receiving.  At Woodman, we have approximately 155 Grade 7 families.  A strong survey sample is necessary in order to implement changes based on your input.  The Woodman staff, and particularly the Gr. 7 teaching team, takes our results based on parental input seriously.  We thank you for taking time to thoughtfully respond. 
Sincerely yours,
Ms. Krickhan, Principal
