2021-2022 Annual Education Results Report
Foothills School Division releases its AERR for the 2021-2022 school year.
There is once again much to celebrate and to be proud of at Foothills School Division, as we share and review our 2021-2022 Annual Education Results Report. Our annual education results report gives us the opportunity to tell our story of engagement, support, and success for each learner. This year’s Annual Education Results Report shows the reality of the impact of the pandemic on student growth and achievement and the consequences of disruptions in learning and pandemic restrictions on learning outcomes and the education landscape.
The AERR is a retrospective that uses parent-provided data to drive the Education Plan. Here are some highlights:
