Fees and Waivers

School fees will be charged to families after the start of the school year in September and October. Online fee payment is the simplest and most convenient way to pay school fees. Parents can use their online account to pay fees or apply for a waiver at: www.cbe.ab.ca/mycbe.

There are a number of different ways you are able to pay school fees, including: online using VISA, MasterCard, VISA Debit or Interac Online; in-person at schools; or by sending in a cheque to the school or CBE.​ 

You can find more information on the CBE school fees and waivers​ page.​

​Changes to My CBE Account

Over the summer, changes will be made to My CBE Account, the online parent account that allows families to pay fees or apply for a waiver, register for transportation and noon supervision, as well as view student progress.

Families will need to set-up new accounts to continue to do online transactions. To create a new account families will need to have their child’s CBE Student ID Number. Watch our website in August for more information about the transition. ​

Yellow School Bus Tra​nsportation

The yellow school bus pre-registration will close on June 15, 2018. Routes for the 2018-19 school year are created over the summer based on the addresses submitted before the cut off date. While CBE Transportation continues to accept registrations, these registrations will not be considered until route changes are done after Thanksgiving.

Yellow school bus route maps will be posted by August 13, 2018 for modified calendar schools and August 29, 2018 for traditional calendar schools on the CBE website: www.cbe.ab.ca/busstop.

In October, a confirmation email will be sent to all parents/guardians who have submitted a pre-registration. It will include transportation fee information and payment options (if applicable). Families can cancel their pre-registration with no financial penalty by responding to the email or canceling using My CBE Account by October 31, 2018.

More information about 2018-19 transportation service levels and fees are posted on the CBE website.

Conditional riders can also register using My CBE Account. Applications will be considered after eligible rides registrations have been processed.

Further Inform​ation

We look forward to a great year ahead. If you have any questions that we haven’t addressed here, please contact the school.
