BGSD taking a measured approach to AB Education’s draft K-6 Curriculum
Nisku, Alberta (April 7, 2021) – After meeting this evening with the Board of Trustees, Black Gold School Division is planning a measured approach to examine our role in the Alberta Education’s Draft Kindergarten – Grade 6 Curriculum validation (pilot) process.
The request to pilot the new draft Curriculum has not yet been made by Alberta Education. “Currently we are proactively engaging with our teaching and administrative staff, as well as our Trustees, to look critically into all aspects of the curriculum documents,” said Superintendent of Schools Bill Romanchuk. “We have every confidence in our people, and we want them to provide meaningful feedback to Alberta Education.”
“When the Division is asked to pilot all or part of the new Curriculum, ours will be a collaborative decision focused on what’s best for all students,” said Superintendent Romanchuk.
Concurrently, Black Gold parents/guardians are encouraged to to review the new 2021 draft K–6 Curriculum at https://curriculum.learnalberta.ca/curriculum/en and provide feedback directly to the Alberta Government from the link found on that page.
