Health & Wellness in School COVID-19 Information for the 2021-22 School Year

COVID-19 Information for the 2021-22 School Year

As of June 15, the Government of Alberta has moved to the final step of its three-step approach to lifting public health meas​ures related to COVID-19.

The move to Step 3 marks the end of masking on public transit and mandatory isolation for people who test positive for COVID-19. 

Alberta Education had specific direction to school authorities, including the CBE:

  • Reference to the school guidance documents, the School Year Plan or the Alberta Health Daily Checklist is no longer required.
  • Illness outbreaks in schools will be managed based on pre-pandemic practices through Alberta Health Services, with identification of outbreaks based on student absenteeism.
  • As of June 30, 2022, school authorities will no longer need to seek ministerial approval to shift to at-home learning.

Alberta Education has also provided notice of changes to provincial assessments.

  • Diploma exams taken in August 2022 will continue under the current weighting of 10 per cent. 
  • Diploma exams will likely return to 30 per cent of a student’s overall mark for the 2022-23 school year.
  • Mandatory Provincial Achievement Tests will continue for Grades 6 and 9.
  • Literacy and numeracy screening assessment in Grades 1 to 3 will be mandatory.​
