Board Policy Updates
At the December 4 Board Meeting, trustees approved revisions to two Board Policies:

All Board Policies are available for review in our Board Policy Handbook. All Administrative Procedures are available for review in our Administrative Procedures Manual.


Grade 3 Student Learning Assessment (SLA) Update 
The Student Learner Assessment (SLA) is a pilot provincial assessment of literacy and numeracy skills. Grade 3 students throughout Elk Island Public Schools participated in this pilot assessment this fall. Alberta Education has recently shared the results with teachers. Teachers will review these results along with other data they collected throughout the year thus far. If you, as a parent, would like information about your child's results, the next scheduled parent conferences may be a good opportunity to have that conversation with your child's teacher. If you have further questions about the SLAs, please contact your child’s school.

More information about the SLAs is also available on the Alberta Education website.
