COVID-19 Updates: Taking steps to return to normal.

Overview

The draft kindergarten to grade 6 (K to 6) curriculum was released to the public on March 29, 2021 for review. Since then we have been listening to all feedback through a transparent curriculum development and review process.

With this insight, we are updating all K to 6 subjects for piloting and implementation in phases, beginning in the 2022-23 school year. We continue to seek feedback on updated curriculum that will be piloted.

Input received

Between March 2021 and March 2022, Albertans provided feedback on the draft K to 6 curriculum in many ways:

  • online survey from March 2021 until February 2022
  • virtual sessions hosted by Alberta Education staff between May 2021 and February 2022
  • 360 teachers piloted the draft content in elementary classrooms with about 7,800 students between September 2021 and February 2022
  • nearly 600 participants shared diverse viewpoints on each subject area and the draft social studies design blueprint during virtual engagement sessions in January and February 2022
  • 12 partner organizations were provided $1 million in grants to help them engage with their communities and they reported their unique perspectives to Alberta Education by the end of March 2022

  • updated draft science, French first language and literature, and French immersion language arts and literature curriculums in May 2022 for piloting during the 2022-23 school year
  • updated fine arts curriculum, which includes music, visual arts, dance and drama, will be released in the future for classroom piloting
  • revised draft K to 6 social studies curriculum will also be made available at a later date for further engagement with Albertans and education stakeholders
