2023 Provincial Election Advocacy
ASBA Election Advocacy Priorities
School boards play a central role in ensuring decisions that affect students most are made by those who know them best. Alberta School Boards Association (ASBA) supports Alberta’s 61 public, catholic and francophone school boards, representing over 670,000 students across the province.
ASBA’s member board schools offer an abundance of programs including internationally recognized programs. Boards provide access to quality educational opportunities regardless of students’ background or circumstances. This includes providing support for diverse learning needs and ensuring equal access to educational programming.
The following priorities guide ASBA’s provincial election advocacy:
- Capital planning
- Cross-ministerial supports
ASBA Engagement with Party Leaders
As a non-partisan association, ASBA invited political party leaders from the Alberta Party, New Democratic Party and United Conservative Party to share their election platform and education priorities in advance of the 2023 Alberta provincial election.
Questions posed to leaders were informed by feedback from ASBA’s locally-elected public, catholic and francophone school board members to promote the importance of continuous support of the education system and elevate the value of school boards as the voice of education.
