The guidance provided in this document is intended to give an outline of the different scenarios that the Minister of Education has announced for schools in September 2020. Measures will be put in place by the school to meet the requirements of: Provincial COVID-19 Health & Safety Guidelines for K-12 Settings.
On August 13, 2021, the Minister of Education and Alberta’s chief medical officer of health announced the provincial 2021-2022 School Year Plan
The province has decided that students will return to school in September under Scenario 1 of the provincial re-entry strategy.
The provincial plan is designed around two operational scenarios:
SCENARIO 1: In-school classes resume (near normal with health measures)
SCENARIO 2: At-home learning continues (in-school classes are suspended/cancelled)
Alberta’s chief medical officer of health and the minister of education will continue to monitor information around the COVID-19 pandemic as they decide how to best keep students, staff and the broader community as safe as possible during a pandemic. This means that, at any point during the school year, the province could decide whether schools across Alberta, schools in a particular region, or individual schools and classrooms need to move from one scenario to another.
This decision will always be made by a medical officer of health in collaboration with education officials
