Dialogue is the Calgary Board of Education’s approach to community engagement. It is a mutually respectful exchange of ideas that acknowledges and celebrates the diversity within the CBE community. It represents our ongoing commitment to involve people in decisions that affect them.

We know we make better decisions when we listen and work together to solve problems and find solutions. When we do, our students are better equipped to become successful citizens who contribute their ideas, passion and energy to society.

There can be no dialogue without you. Find out more about Dialogue as well as current and past system engagement initiatives on the CBE’s website​.​​​​​​

Long-Term Strategy for the Northwest and North Central French Immersion Programs Engagement | Oct. 12 Update

Engagement process | The CBE is in the midst of gathering perspectives from students, parents, staff and others on the Early and Late French Immersion Programs in northwest and north central Calgary (see engagement roadmap). To ensure we reach all families who may be interested in the Early and Late French Immersion Programs, we will be sharing information periodically about opportunities to get involved.

Proposed Plan | We have developed a proposed plan for a long-term strategy for northwest and north central French Immersion Programs. The proposed plan considers all input and feedback gathered during the engagement process along with CBE values and planning principles, available space in schools, financial sustainability, government legislation and more. All of these elements were carefully weighed in developing a proposed plan that supports strong learning opportunities for students across our system. The proposed plan will be posted to the CBE website ​by end of day Nov. 6, 2018.

Invitation | As we continue the third phase of the northwest and north central French Immersion Programs engagement, we invite you to share your feedback on the proposed plan by completing an online survey and/or by attending an open house on Nov. 13, 2018. Registration for the open house is now open. A link to the online survey will be available in November.

The decision-making process will consider all input and feedback gathered at in-person sessions and online opportunities along with CBE values and planning principles, available space in schools, financial sustainability, government legislation and more. Together, all of this must be carefully considered in making recommendations and decisions. Decisions may be implemented for the 2019-20 school year or later.
