2017 Accountability Pillar Overview Results for HPSDFOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

High Prairie, Alberta – The Alberta Government released the 2016-17 provincial achievement test results and the 2016-17 diploma exam results on Tuesday, October 17th and High Prairie School Division is pleased with the positive results from across the Division. These standardized tests are one way of enabling Alberta Education, as well as parents, teachers, and school boards, to assess student achievement and to identify strengths and areas for improvement.

HPSD was pleased to see significant improvement in the Education Quality and School Improvement measures. We additionally noticed improvement in Safe and Caring, Program of Studies, Transition Rate (6 yr), and Citizenship. Both Program of Studies and Parental Involvement exceeded the provincial averages. These improvements are a direct result of our commitment to prepare students for lifelong learning and the world of work via our team of wellness, career, and success coaches.

Our academic results showed both room for improvement and reason to celebrate. Our provincial achievement test (PAT) results showed an increase in both the acceptable standard and standard of excellence. Both English Language Arts 9 and Social Studies 9 observed noted improvement from last year. Diploma exam results remained relatively stable in both the acceptable standard and standard of excellence. Physics 30 results showed a significant increase in both the acceptable standard and standard of excellence. French Language Arts 30-1 noted consistent good and excellent results. The increase in these results are thanks to the ongoing commitment of our dedicated teaching staff to provide top-level instruction.

As with previous years’ results, the strengths and areas for improvement have fluctuated this year and are only one indication of student abilities. High Prairie School Division recognizes that there will always be room for growth; we will continue to focus on both literacy and numeracy as we move forward into the school year. We remain committed to improving student learning with a focus on improving academic success for all students and strengthening our relationships with all stakeholders in the Division.
