Alberta Education is extending the application deadline for the Minister’s Parent Advisory Council and the Minister’s Teacher Advisory Council to Monday, August 15, 2022.
Alberta Education is looking for 40 parents/guardians and 40 teachers from across Alberta who will represent diverse priorities and a broad range of life experiences, knowledge and skills. The councils will include Indigenous and francophone peoples and representatives from various geographical locations, school authorities, cultural origins and socio-economic backgrounds.
The voices of Albertans are critical to our education system, and the Alberta government is committed to listening to parents, guardians and teachers across our province. Over the past year, the 2021/22 council members shared their valuable perspectives on the draft Kindergarten to Grade 6 curriculum, the Education (Students First) Statutes Amendment Act, mental health and more. These councils have helped enhance Alberta Education's ability to engage directly on important education priorities.
Interested individuals can apply until August 5, 2022. For more information and instructions on how parents and teachers can apply, please visit alberta.ca/ministers-parent-advisory-council and alberta.ca/ministers-teacher-advisory-council.
