Parent Resources

Alberta Government (LearnAlberta.ca)

Alberta Learning has licensed the online resources linked from this site for you and your children (i.e., the license covers the use of these resources by students in publicly-funded elementary and secondary schools in Alberta as well as by their parents). Through the Online Reference Centre, you and your children will be searching databases of published resources; this lessens the risk of inadvertently coming across inappropriate material. As such, the Online Reference Centre can help your children find reliable, up-to-date information for school assignments and projects. Your children can search the Online Reference Centre from school or from a computer elsewhere using their user ID and password located in their students’ agenda he/she obtained during their library session. Remember, due to the licensing agreement, it is important that only you and your school-age children use these resources.

Supporting your Child

As parents we often struggle with how best to support our children. To enable your child to meet a high level of achievement, we must work together. We have the same end goal in mind. As a parent, your role is:

  • Providing encouragement through how you speak to and act towards your child. Support them to establish homework routines and work towards goals.
  • Becoming involved and interested in what they are doing. Ask direct questions and listen intentionally. Discuss problems with your child and your child’s teachers when they come up. 
  • Promote literacy and numeracy with them through reading and practical mathematics. 

Below is a list of resources that parents and guardians may find helpful:

Bullying & Relationships

Mental Health

Self-Harm

LGBTQ Resources

Health and Wellness

Digital Citizenship
