UCP Draft Curriculum Not Supported
Updated: Feb 14, 2022
Upon the release of the UCP proposed draft curriculum, Edmonton Catholic Schools has performed a thorough review of the UCP draft curriculum and I have reviewed both these documents in detail. Let me assure you that the decision of this nature was given the utmost attention by our division’s educational experts, leaders and by Trustees; and are always taken with the best interests of our students as our paramount consideration. In conclusion, I do not support the proposed draft curriculum.
As a division, we have engaged our teachers, administration, Council of Elders and other stakeholders and provided feedback to the government on this very important topic. Furthermore, I support the division's statement to not pilot the draft curriculum.
I also welcome your input. Please feel free to share your thoughts and ideas with me at any time.
