Changes to Home Ed for 2017

Today from Alberta Education:

“In October 2016, Alberta Education released the Standards for Home Education Reimbursement. This document was intended to assist school authorities in determining which parental expenses are eligible—and ineligible—for reimbursement on behalf of students in home education programs. When the Standards for Home Education Reimbursement was released, I committed that the department would continue to work with supervising school authorities and other stakeholders on this important issue.

 

Alberta Education has heard from several school authorities, stakeholders and parents over the past school year regarding home education reimbursements. This feedback has been valuable and has contributed to an updated version of the Standards for Home Education Reimbursement, effective September 1, 2017. The current version of the Standards for Home Education Reimbursement remains in place until August 31, 2017; therefore, all 2016/17 school year reimbursements must follow the original version of the Standards for Home Education Reimbursement.”

 

The updated version of the Standards for Home Education Reimbursement, along with a Summary of Significant Changes, is available on the Alberta Education website at education.alberta.ca/home-education-blended-programs/responsibilities/everyone/resources/.
