Parent-Directed Home Education

The Parent Directed Program in Sturgeon Public Schools is designed for parents who wish to be primarily responsible for offering an education program to their child. The parents are responsible for developing, administering, managing and evaluating the progress of the student, and maintaining a record of those studies for their children. In the Parent Directed Program, a Home Education Facilitator provides support to parents and monitors a child’s progress throughout the school year. 

Parents are responsible for student learning. As such, they must ensure that the child’s educational program is consistent with the learning plan and the student learning outcomes listed in the Education Act Home Education Regulation 89/2019 or the Alberta Program of Studies. Evaluation of the child’s progress is done a minimum of twice a year where the Home Education Facilitator evaluates the student and reviews the student portfolio.
