“Our classrooms look as global villages of many cultures and languages.  Students with English as a Second Language (ESL) needs are part of almost every school population in Alberta.”

This guide provides information and suggestions that will help you establish good communication with your child’s teacher. Good communication makes it easier for the teacher to get to know your child and for you to understand what is happening in school. It will make the adjustment to a different school system as smooth as possible. Your involvement will help your child be a successful student.

Consult this guide as your child progresses through junior high school. Use the index to select the sections that you need.

The guide is currently available in seven languages: English, Filipino/Tagalog, Polish, Russian, Spanish, Ukrainian and Vietnamese.

In this guide, the word ‘parent’ includes guardians, caregivers and other family members.
