Red Deer Public encourages feedback on draft K-6 curriculum

Following the Government of Alberta’s release of the new draft K-6 curriculum last month, Red Deer Public Schools is encouraging parents and the community to take a look and give feedback.

The new curriculum is a 500 page document, so we will need to take a detailed and authentic look at both its contents as well as how teachers will be able to deliver the outcomes. We will be checking with our schools and curriculum team before commenting on specifics as well as using the opportunities to provide feedback and suggestions that Alberta Education has provided.

In the meantime, the Government of Alberta is seeking input on the draft curriculum, and we urge our parents and community to take the time to review and understand the curriculum and then share perspectives. Teachers will be providing input from the classroom perspective, however, all perspectives are vital as part of the curriculum review process.

This curriculum is important and will impact teaching and learning for years, so now is the opportunity to make sure we get it right for our students.
