Biographical history

The Athabasca local of the Alberta Teachers' Association was formed in 1936 to further the objects of the ATA as set out in section 4 of the Teaching Profession Act and the ATA General By-Laws. The area served by the Local included Athabasca County and Local Improvement District 17. There were also sub-locals in Athabasca, Colinton, Boyle and Perryvale. Athabasca sub-local included Athabasca, Richmond Park and the Hutteritian Brethren Colony. The Local had a number of committees regarding economic policy, negotiating, local communications, professional development, convention representatives, political action and quality of life. With regionalization of school boards, the Athabasca local was absorbed in 1995 by the Aspen View Local of the Alberta Teachers' Association. In 1967, the Athabasca Local published <i> Clover and Wild Strawberries: A History of the Schools of the County of Athabasca</i> which won a commendation from from the American Association of State and Local History in 1968.
