​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 Policy

The interest that parents show in their child's schoolwork is most important. To this end, parents are encouraged to dis-cuss, with their children, their child's daily activities, and/or assignments brought home. In order to develop successful home study habits, parents are encouraged to establish regular study patterns with their children at home. The nature and amounts of home study recommended by the Calgary Board of Education (Administrative Regulation 3066) are as follows:

Division I (Grade K-3)

The motivation which comes from parent interest in children’s schoolwork can be valuable to a child. Parents and teach-ers should encourage children to read from books suggested by the school. Pressures can bring about negative results. No formal assignments shall be made, but from 5-10 minutes of systematic study is recommended.

Division II (Grade 4)

Formal assignments may be given at the discretion of the teachers particularly for pupils who need special attention or help, but in general, assignments should be of the reading or study type. Parents should be made aware of the teacher's general requirements with respect to home study, and the Board's expectations that no school requirements should exceed 20 minutes in length.
