Parents choose curriculum resources and instructional methods consistent with their family's beliefs and consistent with the Alberta Home Education regulations. Grande Prairie Public School Division offers a Supervised by school authority (funded) home education program supervised by an accredited teacher(s).

Assessment

Assessment can serve different purposes at different times.  Assessment is to ensure students are meeting curriculum expectations for their grade level; indicate what students know or do not know; and may be used to help student improve their learning.  Assessment is also used to adjust instruction to meet the needs of students. Assessment informs students in their learning as well.
