What is shared responsibility?

As outlined by Alberta Education on this page  

A parent of a student providing a home education program to the student and an Alberta funded school authority may agree to share responsibility for the student’s education. Two conditions must be met for this to occur:

  • The school authority portion of the agreement must consist of a program where an Alberta certificated teacher, employed by a school board or an accredited funded private school, is responsible for planning, resource selection, instructional delivery, assessment and evaluation of student progress in selected courses that follow the Alberta programs of study or locally-developed courses. The school authority must be responsible for at least a minimum of:
    • 50% of the student’s program in Grades 1 to 9; and
    • 20% of the student’s program in Grades 10 to 12.
  • The home education portion of the agreement must consist of a program provided by a parent under the authority of the School Act and the Home Education Regulation. The parent is responsible for developing, administering and managing the home education program as outlined above.

School boards or accredited–funded private schools are not required to offer shared responsibility programs. The offering of shared responsibility programs is optional.

I have to tell you how impressed he was with how quickly his teachers responded to his questions. The technology worked great and he valued the opportunity to experience online learning. He did say he missed working with his friends, but he now knows he can learn online successfully. Yesterday, we finally received his Grade 10 schedule, and thanks to his completion of CALM, he can access one of the electives he really wanted. His schedule had additional flexibility thanks to Palliser Beyond Borders! Thank you all for your efforts. When I showed my son what his schedule could look like, he was genuinely excited about the coming year.
