Accountability Pillar and Achievement Results
The Accountability Pillar and Achievement Results from June 2017 are now available. The Accountability Pillar is a provincial tool that we utilize to measure the success, and progress towards meeting our learning goals. It helps us identify areas that need improvement and set priorities for the future. The focus is on more than student achievement, resulting in a more complete approach to accountability and system improvement
Wetaskiwin Regional Public Schools is in the process of analyzing the data and the many variables that may affect results, which in turn will allow us to focus on improving student learning and achievement.
As part of the accountability process, we will be developing our Three Year Plan and Results Report which includes our Accountability Pillar and Achievement results. Each school will also be developing a Three Year Plan and Results Report and sharing this with the school communities.
