The Alberta government has cancelled the accreditation of the Trinity Christian School Association in Cold Lake, effective immediately.
Education Minister David Eggen says it hasn’t met the standard required by the government when it comes to financial accountability and the oversight and supervision of the home education program.
He adds an audit of Trinity’s financials found numerous issues and it was determined that public funding was directed to a third party.
Alberta Education will be providing the findings of its review to both Canada Revenue Agency and the RCMP so those agencies can determine whether further investigation is warranted.
It was also determined that Trinity hasn’t demonstrated sufficient accountability for the supervision of its home-education program.
Trinity Christian School Association had 13 in-school students and almost 3,500 home-education students registered for the 2016-17 school year.
