Parent Use of Social Media

It is recognized that Lethbridge School District does not have any jurisdiction over parents’ personal use of social media. It should be communicated to parents, however, that defamatory statements regarding Lethbridge School District No. 51 staff members or students within the context of school-related events or instruction, will be defined as harassment. Sanctions may include those delineated in the District Procedure 402.8.1 Harassment and Discrimination: a written warning, issue of trespassing notice, termination of volunteerism, and/or referral to appropriate authorities such as law enforcement.  

 

Accountability Pillar Survey

As an annual check-up on the education system, the Accountability Pillar provides an opportunity for Alberta Education and school authorities to ensure that we are equipping students for success.  The Accountability Pillar uses a set of 16 indicators consisting of surveys of students, parents and teachers on various aspects of quality; student outcomes such as dropout and high school completion rates; and provincial assessments of student learning.

From January to the end of February, Alberta Education will be conducting the annual Accountability Pillar Survey.  In January, parents of students in Grade 4 will receive a survey from Alberta Education.  In February, students in Grades 4 & 5 and all teachers will be completing their surveys online at school.  All surveys are anonymous and ask questions about experiences with the school.  In addition to English and French, the parent survey is available in Chinese, Punjabi, Arabic, Blackfoot, Cree, Korean, Spanish, Tagalog and Urdu.

Your participation in the survey helps provide important information on the quality of education your child is receiving, so we encourage you to return your survey promptly.  Survey results will be available to school authorities in May 2016, and will be reported publicly as part of their 3 - Year Education Plans and Annual Education Results Reports.
