​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

CBE regulations state: ”every encouragement shall be given to pupils (and parents) to set aside some regular time each evening for home study.” Amount of time varies from 5-19 minutes in Division I to 20 minutes in Division II.

At Marion Carson School, all students are encouraged to be involved in daily reading at home. The amount of other homework varies from grade to grade and teacher to teacher. Typical assignments may include weekly spelling list, math drills, unfinished class work  and project work. Homework assignments will be recorded in the student’s daily agenda (Grade 1 – 6) and in some cases on D2L (ask your child’s teacher for this information).
