Attendance in MyCBE / PowerSchool

Our student information system, MyCBE / PowerSchool provides parents and students with access to detailed attendance information. For help creating an account or signing in, please visit Technical Support for Students & Parents.

Attendance records are available in Grades and Attendance or Attendance History. Common attendance codes are:

  • A = Absent-Unexcused
  • IE = Illness-Excused
  • LU = Late-Unexcused
  • MA = Medical Appointment
  • P = Present

A legend of all the attendance codes are available at the bottom of the attendance charts in PowerSchool. To discuss any discrepancies, please contact the school office.

Attendance Expectations at the CBE

We believe there is a strong correlation between attendance and effective education. The CBE Administrative Regulation 6020 - Attendance of Students​ regulation applies to all of our students, and outlines the responsibilities for students, parents and school staff.​​

The Board Chairs of the four metro school boards have issued a statement asking the Minister of Education to reconsider the Alberta Government’s ban on seclusion rooms (Ministerial Order 006/2019) https://t.co/276eSkXIiP #yycbe https://t.co/T3TH2c98k5
