In Alberta, Curriculum or Programs of Study are determined by Alberta Education. It identifies what students are expected to learn and do in all subjects from Kindergarten to Grade 12. You can find the new K–6 Curriculum and the current Gr. 7–12 Programs of Study on the Alberta Education website.
Lethbridge School Division does not decide what is taught in our schools. However, our teachers decide how the curriculum is taught in their classrooms.
New K-6 Curriculum Development & Implementation
Alberta Education released its new K-6 curriculum in English Language Arts and Literature, Mathematics, and Physical Education and Wellness on April 13, 2022.
English Language Arts and Literature (K–3), Mathematics (K–3), and Physical Education and Wellness (K–6) will be used in classrooms across Alberta beginning in the fall of 2022. Additional curriculum will be implemented and/or piloted in 2022/2023.
Alberta Education has shared new curriculum resources for parents and school boards, as well as an implementation plan, on their new digital resource, LearnAlberta.
A Frequently Asked Questions document has been developed to provide more information for Division families.
