Alberta's Education Ecosystem - Forum #2

1 Start 2 RSVP 3 Complete

Join the Calgary-Hawkwood Constituency Association as we continue our panel series exploring Alberta's education ecosystem. Forum #1 was held in November and focused on a public education system perspective. Check out the Calgary-Hawkwood CA Facebook Page to view the video from that session.

The topic of Education has become highly politicized recently over topics such as adequate funding, executive compensation, private education, transportation and programs of choice to name a few. But how much do we really understand the provincial education ecosystem?

In Forum #2 on March 29th, we'll hear from panelists with significant experience in diverse parts of Alberta's Education System: 

- Mary Martin - President of the Alberta School Boards Association (ASBA)
- Adriana LaGrange - President of Alberta Catholic Schools Trustees' Association (ACSTA)
- Ken McNeill - Founding Member of Calgary Arts Academy Society (Charter School)
- John Jagersma - Executive Director of the Association for Independent Schools and Colleges of Alberta (AISCA)


The March 29th event is planned to cover topics such as: understanding the current state of Alberta's primary & secondary education systems and opportunities to improve education system cost, quality and access. We will also likely discuss concepts such as Public/Separate system amalgamation, equitable access to education, and perspectives on choice in education. 

We are also looking forward to a third Forum in the coming months with perspectives from students who are currently experiencing different streams in our education system.

The forum will be an engaging exploration of topics of most interest to the attendees. We will be contacting attendees in advance of the forum to gather questions and to define the most critical topics for discussion. As such, please RSVP early to ensure your questions are included. Specific questions can be sent directly to

There is no cost to attend. Please RSVP to let us know you are coming.
