Outreach education in Alberta is now well established and is recognized by the government as a legitimate way to help students graduate.  Traditionally, instruction in outreach was limited to modules and was a storefront model where students would drop by and pick up modules and then return what they had finished.  Today outreach has grown to include blended educational practices, where a student often meets with a teacher to receive help emotionally and educationally as they work towards achieving their goals.  A variety of educational delivery models are used to bring education to the student in terms that they can understand. The outreach teacher has grown from purely an instructional design specialist to include counseling and building encouraging relationships both local and distant.  Thus, our vision encompasses delivering education through a variety of means in a thoughtful and caring environment.
