Francophone

After a 1990 Supreme Court decision, based on the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms minority language rights provisions, Alberta set-up francophone school districts (and boards), to allow francophone communities (Public and Separate Catholic) to administer their own schools, and provide French language instruction, wherever numbers warrant.

  • Public Francophone (In areas where there is no Separate Catholic Francophone system, Catholic and Public (e.g. secular) instruction may be accommodated within the same board):
    • East Central Francophone Education Region No. 3
    • Greater North Central Francophone Education Region No. 2, based in Edmonton, serves larger area
    • Greater Southern Public Francophone Education Region No. 4, based in Calgary and serves larger area
    • Northwest Francophone Education Region No. 1
  • Separate Catholic Francophone:
    • Greater Southern Separate Catholic Francophone Education Region No. 4, based in Calgary and serves larger area

Charter

Charter schools are independent of district boards, with each having its own board, with similar powers to a district board, but limited to a single school.
