The Calgary Board of Education is committed to providing and supporting flexible, customized learning experiences for all children and families.

Homeschooling is designed for families who wish to be responsible for offering a program of studies for their child by developing, administering, managing and evaluating the progress of the student, and maintaining a record of those studies for their children.

Accountability

  • A parent who intends to provide a home schooling program for their child during a school year works with the CBE.
  • A parent is required to offer a program that has been accepted by the CBE and aligns with the CBE Learning Plan.
  • Families participate in prescribed reviews by the CBE a minimum of 2 times a year.
  • The CBE ensures that the student is meeting designated outcomes and that assistance and advice from facilitators is provided, that records are provided and maintained, and that parents are aware of the services and resources available.

Roles and Responsibilities

Parents are responsible for student learning

The parent is responsible for curricular choices while ensuring that the program is consistent with the student learning outcomes listed in the Alberta Regulation 145/2006 Home Education Regulation or the Alberta Program of Studies. Assessment is parent-directed according to the child’s needs.

Evaluation of the child’s progress is done a minimum of twice a year where a certificated teacher (facilitator) evaluates the student and reviews the student portfolio.

CBE Facilitators

Facilitators are certified Alberta teachers employed by the CBE. Their responsibilities are to:

  • Facilitate student learning by providing assistance and advice to the parent
  • Make recommendations to the parents on matters that will assist the student in attaining a higher level of achievement
  • Advise the parents on the progress of the student, based on evaluations of the progress of the student and a review of the portfolio at the end of each school term
  • Collaborate with parents on maintaining records of student progress for future reference
  • Indicate the services and resources provided by the CBE that are available for use by the parent and student.

CBE Home Education funding

All parents of students registered in the Home Schooling Program by September 30 will be eligible to receive supplemental funding, (Alberta Regulation 126/99) to augment their learning.  

Parent-Directed Program Funding

This funding is in addition to the many services available at CBE Home Education and will allow parents to access resources, services, facilities, and supplies not directly provided by CBe-learn.

Students must be registered by Sept. 30 to be entitled to funding.

Parents are responsible for educational costs and may submit receipts between Nov. 1 to April 1 for reimbursement for the current school year.
