Funding per Student graph has changed. Please see the revised graph below.
Funding per student considers the total dollars received from Alberta Education, less targeted funding which is not available to support teaching and classroom learning.
An error was identified in the per student funding number for the 2011-12 school year that is used for comparative purposes within certain board approved reports published from 2012 to 2019. Specifically, the amount provided for the Alberta Teachers Retirement Fund (“ATRF”) for 2011-12 school year was not removed from total Alberta Education funding. Accordingly, the per student funding amount for 2011-12 was higher than it should have been on a comparative basis.
See the Oct. 8, 2019 Report to Board of Trustees for more details on the ‘Updated Unaudited Supplemental Information for 2011-12 Per Student Funding’.
