COVID-19 Updates: Taking steps to return to normal.
In early 2020, we gathered feedback on a draft ministerial order for student learning.
The draft order was created by an independent Curriculum Advisory Panel. It sets a new vision for student learning that emphasizes the values, learning foundations and outcomes for kindergarten to grade 12 education in Alberta.
The finalized ministerial order came into effect on August 6, 2020. It replaced the previous version from 2013.

We broadened consultations to hear a wider range of perspectives on the draft ministerial order from parents, teachers and subject matter experts:
- 8,000+ Albertans shared their views through an online survey
- 300 education partners, including parents, gave input through in-person and virtual engagement sessions
The engagement closed on February 24, 2020.
