Fees for the 2019-20 school year will be available in the fall of 2019, once the CBE budget is approved by Alberta Education.​ 

Fees will be charged to your MyCBE / PowerSchool account​ after the CBE fee schedule is approved by the Minister.

Annual system fees are set each year when the operating budget is passed by the Board of Trustees. To keep fees as low as possible, the CBE is committed to being as efficient as possible in the provision of services. Costs of providing the services include direct labour and supplies, as well as the cost of fee waivers and uncollectible accounts.

It is important to know that we have a waiver process for families who cannot afford to pay the fees.

School-based and course specific fees may be charged by our school. You can find a complete list of the approved fees for your school on our Find My School Fees page. 

​Visit the CBE website for more information on fees and waivers​.​​​​​​​
