​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

Although, the CBE makes recommendations about homework in Administration Regulation 3066 – Homework, assigning homework is up to the individual teacher. Students and parents are encouraged to set aside some regular time each
evening for home study or recreational reading.

The nature and amount of home study recommended are as follows:
Division I (Grades 1 to 3): Parents and teachers should encourage children to read each evening. No formal assignments should be made, but from 5-10 minutes of systematic study per night is recommended.
Division II (Grades 4 to 6): Formal homework assignments may be given at the discretion of the teacher, particularly for students who need special attention or help. They should be within the 20 minute range. Questions about homework should be directed firstly to your child’s teacher.
