Provincial Protocol Framework: Success in Schools

Success In Schools for Children and Youth in Care - Provincial Protocol Framework (PPF)
This is a joint venture between Alberta Education and Children and Youth Services (CYS) to support improved school outcomes and high school completion rates for children and youth in provincial government care.  It provides opportunities for collaboration with the child/youth, their caregivers and other learning team members to share information and engage in joint decision-making to plan for and support school success for children and youth in care.

More information can be found on the Alberta Education Website at:

Our goal at CESD for Success in School, is to have all of our students in care meeting with their learning team and creating a Success in School plan.  The Learning Support Teacher focusing on Inclusive Education is responsible for organizing and facilitating these meetings. These meetings should occur within about 8 weeks of the student registering. Is the caseworker's responsibility to contact the school prior to registering a new student in care.  The purpose of these meetings is to share information and create goals with the student and his/her team for the year to support his/her progress. The student is an essential and important part of the team.
