​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.​​​

Homework

Students may not always receive homework assignments in every subject every day. Students need to plan for regular study and review at home in addition to the completion of day-to-day assignments. Questions regarding assignments need to be directed to the individual subject teacher. A reasonable amount of homework may range from 10 minutes in Grade 1 to 1½ hours in Grade 9.

Teachers are responsible to inform students and parents of homework expectations as well as test and due dates. Within reason, teachers may negotiate the due dates of major projects and unit tests with students. Students are responsible to record homework and test dates. These are published in class on whiteboards and electronically.

Late Assignment Policy

Students are responsible to:

  • organize their time and work
  • submit assignments in a timely manner
  • discuss any extraordinary circumstances with their teacher before the assignment is due
  • meet with their teacher and propose a solution if assignments are incomplete

​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.​

​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.​​​
