The National Sport School (NSS) was created as a special focus/interest offered through the CBE and Canada Olympic Development Association (CODA) in 1994. It was designed to meet the needs of high performance and developmental athletes. This unique setting and delivery focus accommodates sporting needs with access to Grade 9-12 education.

The NSS program is very expensive on a cost per student basis in its current location with current teacher staffing levels. Moving the program would save approximately $1 million a year. This is why we are proposing the options of relocating the program to another CBE school or having current NSS students attend their designated school. This would allow the staffing costs and operations costs to align with high school per student funding across the CBE.

By the end of March 2020, CBE administration will make a recommendation to the CBE Board of Trustees about the location and program delivery of the National Sport School for the 2020-21 school year and beyond. A final decision about the future location and delivery of the program will be made by the Board of Trustees by end of May 2020.
