Clearview students’ graduation and school completion rates are higher than that of Alberta’s average of 76.4 per cent, according to a media release, with Clearview’s 81.5 per cent being one of the highest in the province.

The media release stated that for provincial achievement tests for grades 6 and 9, Clearview students have shown consistent improvement in both the standards of acceptable and excellence.

There is an increase in the number of grades 6 and 9 students’ achieving acceptable level as well as the level of excellence, compared to previous years.

According to Superintendent Peter Barron, Clearview’s emphasis on ensuring that the school division is a first choice learning environment is making a difference.

“We have focused our school and division professional development on improving academic results, as well as ensuring parent, staff and student satisfaction remains high,” said Barron. “We are also working on intervention strategies for students at risk. All of these efforts combine to have a positive impact for our students.”

With strengthening achievement in Grade 12 diploma exams continuing to be a priority in Clearview, the number of students qualifying for Rutherford scholarships has exceeded 65.4 per cent, while the provincial rate is 61.2 per cent.

Speaking on the satisfaction surveys, “Clearview is pleased that parents, staff and students continue to report that our schools are safe,” said Board Chair Cheri Neitz. “Feeling safe is a critical foundation for learning. Parents also tell us we’re doing a great job preparing students to be solid citizens. As a board, we appreciate the efforts of our staff, and we will continue to work together to ensure all students are successful.”

According to the statement released last week, Clearview continues to have student participation rates that are higher than provincial average on diploma exams showing Clearview works to include all of its students, giving each child an opportunity to succeed.
