Summary: Albertaʼs High School Completion Strategic Framework.
The focus of the Successful Transition strategy is on ensuring students have the supports to help them make successful transitions between grades and from school to work. Numerous factors can affect the complexity of transitions for individual students. The transition from grade to grade, school to work, and school to further education can be particularly challenging for some students. The probability of a successful transition is significantly increased when schools work with parents/caregivers, employers, community agencies and providers of further education to develop coordinated transition strategies for these students.
This transitions workbook is designed as a starting point to assist school leaders in supporting FNMI students in the transition process. It is not intended to be exhaustive or prescriptive. Alberta Education recognizes that successful initiatives are built at the jurisdiction and school level with consideration of the local context. The intent of this workbook is to stimulate thinking about how best to develop strategies in schools to ensure the successful transition of FNMI students throughout and beyond the education system.
