Alberta K-6 Draft Curriculum
Have your say! As professional educators in the province, our feedback is crucial. Here are 2 ways to get started.
1. The Alberta government is asking for feedback. Let's give it to them (this link)
2. Alberta Advocacy Group SOS "Support Our Students" has a survey and a convenient template for sending emails to Alberta government offficials. Start here.
Note: The provincial government has started recruiting teachers to participate in curriculum working groups. While the ATA will not oppose teachers volunteering, the Association encourages individuals to exercise their own professional judgement.

We cannot let up. Send your MLA a letter and tell them to repeal Bill 22.
