Before September 30 each year: 

  • Submit An Inquiry Form to arrange a meeting  with the Palliser Home Education Teacher to see if this is a good fit for you and your child
  • Parents will be asked to submit a PowerSchool enrollment which includes a digital declaration of intent to home educate. Palliser Registration is here https://www.pallisersd.ab.ca/​ Select Palliser home education as the school. ​
  • choose Palliser Home Education. By choosing this school you will complete the parent home education declaration, required for home education registrations. 
  • These questions will be asked in the PowerSchool enrollment: the Home Education Notification form (Question 11 asks for your resident board. This refers to the board in your geographical region of the province.) 

After September 30 you must find a willing non-resident board and request a rescue registration (which means no funding is available to the board, nor you) or register with your own local jurisdiction. No funding is available to you with your local board either, after September 30.

Home education registration options are described here  https://www.alberta.ca/home-education.aspx

Note: Parents can declare themselves as home educators through this Alberta Education program by registering directly with the province: 

Home Education Notification Form – Not Supervised by School Authority and unfunded. Parents are asked to submit this form through  an online form in the Provincial Approach to Student Information (PASI) accessible in myPass.

If the parent/student does not have a MyPASS account, instructions on how to sign up for MyPASS, including video instructions, are located here: https://www.alberta.ca/student-information-high-school-transcripts.aspx#toc-1.

Despite these challenges, my teachers at Palliser supported me and helped me reach so many of my goals. They taught me that all my weaknesses were strengths and i truly had potential to follow my passions, even if the road was long and hard. There were so many moments where i considered dropping out again and when I went to talk to Ms. Kramer about this, she told me that she would do everything in her power to keep me going.
