​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.​​​

Organization

Teaming: While students are part of a classroom grouping, each grade team will have a shared responsibility for all of the students in the team. This allows for flexible groupings so that at times, children may come together from different classrooms to work in flexible groups on specific assignments or projects.

Homework 

The CBE promotes the development of good study habits. Two kinds of study include the completion of assignments and the informal study of topics being studied in class.Grade 1 and 2: Some formal assignments may be given. In addition, 5 to 10 minutes of systematic study per night is recommended. This will include daily reading.Grade 3 to 6: Formal assignments are more typical in Grade 5 & 6. Check with your child’s teacher to determine curriculum and classroom expectations.

Early Development Centre

The Early Development Centres (EDC) supports pre-school children who have been identified with severe delays/disabilities. These may be delays in speech and language, social, emotional, or behavioral development, and/or physical/medical development. Through play in a language-rich environment, we are able to better prepare children for Kindergarten and beyond. Early intervention support is partially funded through Alberta Education’s Program Unit Funding (PUF). For more information about our program, please visit Early Development Centre Preschool Program on the CBE website or call 403-817-7612. ​​​​

​Exploring Career Choices

For Grades 5 to 9 at the CBE, we offer Career & Technology Foundations (CTF). This is an inquiry-based, hands-on program that focuses on essential skills common to occupational areas, and our students personalize their learning based on their interests and passions.​​​
