CBE Budget Process

Our corporate budget and financial information contains comprehensive information about how we fund our schools and maximize dollars directed to students in classrooms.

We fund our schools via a process we call the Resour​ce Allocation Method (RAM)​. The RAM is designed to allocate resources equitably while providing choice in the assignment and deployment of those resources to meet the unique needs of students within their schools. Not all resources for the school are allocated through the RAM. Other school costs are paid for centrally, such as utility costs, transportation costs, custodial services and many other costs that are managed on behalf of the school.

Parents or community members who would like to learn more about the RAM and how our school budgets, are invited to have a conversation with our principal. It is the principal’s job to develop the budget based on the RAM provided. School Councils are encouraged to provide advice about this process.​​​

School Council meeting @ElbowParkSchool tomorrow (Wed. Jan. 22) at 2:00 pm. See our “Get Involved” tab on our homepage

RT @yyCBEdu: We respect the right of parents/guardians to make their own decisions about sending their children to school. If your child will not be attending classes please ensure you contact your school's attendance line to report the absence https://t.co/BJFLrXCz2i #yycbe #WeAreCBE https://t.co/tbMesQe6Zs

RT @yyCBEdu: We are planning for all schools to be open as usual during the cold snap. If this changes for any reason, an update will be posted on our website, and parents should watch their email for any updates https://t.co/VP7agviwuy #yycbe #WeAreCBE https://t.co/vD32spavwu

RT @yyCBEdu: Very cold temperatures are forecast for Calgary in the coming days that can make getting to and from school more challenging.
