Alberta Education is updating the K-12 curriculum province-wide. Curriculum, or the Program of Studies, outlines what students are expected to learn in each subject, for each grade.
This six-year project will focus on updating six subject areas: Language Arts (English, French Immersion, Francophone), Mathematics, Social Studies, Sciences, Arts Education (dance, music, drama, visual arts), and Wellness Education (health, physical education, CALM).
Edmonton Public Schools is one of many school districts involved in this project. An up-to-date curriculum is needed to prepare our students with the skills and knowledge they need for the 21st century.
In December 2018, the Minister of Education approved new Kindergarten to Grade 4 provincial curriculum. The new curriculum will be field tested starting in September 2019. Parents can expect to hear more details about field testing and other timelines as this information becomes available.
Alberta Education’s targeted timelines for completion of curriculum development are:
