Kits-Models Correlated to the Alberta Grades 1-12 Science Curriculum

Kits are delivered to SD76 and PRRD teachers through the regular school delivery system and returned in the same manner. Notice that the kit has been placed into the delivery system is emailed to the teacher on the day that it is dropped off at their respective central office. For MHCBE teachers, kits are delivered to the MHCBE central office and teachers pick up the kits themselves (an email is sent out to the teacher from Praxis on the day that it is delivered for pick-up). MHCBE teachers return the kits to their central office on the day that it is due (please let us know via email that you have done so). All other kit borrowers pick up the kit directly from our Praxis office and return it on the day that it is due.

If it is anticipated that a kit is desired beyond its due date then contact Praxis via phone or email and request an extension (please do this before the day it is due). There are over 700 teachers in our SE Alberta service area and late kit returns can cause significant issues for the next children and their teacher who may have reserved it. Late kits are expected to be delivered by the borrower directly to the Praxis office as soon as possible so that we may prepare them for the next booking.
