​Regular Program at the CBE

Even though most of our schools offer a regular program, no two are quite the same. All schools teach according to Alberta Education’s mandated curriculum, however a school’s focus, optional courses and school activities are as unique as every school.​​​

​Middle Years at the CBE

Middle years learning refers to education offered to students between the ages of 10-15. These years are critical in keeping our students on the path to high school completion and their career futures. Keys for student success include: participating in hands-on, purposeful and relevant learning; creating positive relationships with peers, teachers and other adults; and being actively involved in the community and feeling supported by family, businesses and other organizations that surround them.

Learn more about our students in their middle years, including how their learning will change and how you can support your child, visit the CBE website.​

Homework

To promote the development of effective study habits, we suggest students, in consultation with their parents, set up a routine and environment that facilitates both home study and daily reading. Homework will also be dependent on how each students use and manage their classroom time.

In Division II (Grades 5 and 6), formal assignments may be given for homework. Students are also expected to complete missed or unfinished classroom work. Suggested study time for homework is 20 – 30 minutes daily.  In addition, students are encouraged to make recreational reading part of their daily home study routine.  In Division III (Grades 7, 8, and 9), expectations increase. Students may be assigned daily homework for up to one hour.  Recreational reading is also encouraged at these grade levels in addition to home study. Students requiring additional instruction or support may contact their teacher to schedule a meeting for assistance with their studies. The learning commons is also available for student use during the health break and lunch hour.

​Exploring Career Choices

For Grades 5 to 9 at the CBE, we offer Career & Technology Foundations (CTF). This is an inquiry-based, hands-on program that focuses on essential skills common to occupational areas, and our students personalize their learning based on their interests and passions.​​​
