On behalf of the provincial government, we support Alberta schools and their students by providing Grade 1-12 course instruction and teaching resources.

We do not charge fees for student instruction (SI) or digital resources (TS).

Student Instruction (SI)

Through Student Instruction (SI) services, ADLC teachers provide the instruction, guidance and assessment services to your students at a distance. Distance education means teaching and learning when students may not be required to be physically present at specific locations or times.

Instead, students communicate remotely with their teachers and complete course work using print and/or electronic materials. One of the major benefits of distance education is increased flexibility, which allows students to learn at their own pace and at times and locations convenient to them.

Teacher Support (TS)

Through Teacher Support (TS) services, teachers can access Alberta Programs of Study courses in whole or in part, for use in their classrooms. Teachers can access print or online courses.

Many teachers use these courses to supplement their instructional materials. New teachers, or teachers new to a course often find value in the opportunity to access ready-to-use course content.

Types of Courses

Online
For students who have sufficient access to the internet, online courses can simulate the classroom experience. Online programs offer flexibility, assessment tools and strategies, and frequent student-teacher interaction.

Print
For students who prefer printed materials, this service offers the flexibility of independent reading, instruction, and completion of assignments. We also offer many of our print resources in a DIY format, for your convenience.

See our downloadable/printable Guide for Alberta-Funded Schools.

Governance
ADLC is governed by the publicly elected school board and accountable to the board and Alberta Education. The school board has authorized the Superintendent of Pembina Hills School Division (PHSD) to be the Chief Executive Officer of ADLC. ADLC is authorized to provide services to Alberta School Authorities and their students through a Service Agreement between Alberta Education and Pembina Hills School Division.
