​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

We believe that homework is important for student learning. It is the quality, not the quantity, of homework that benefits student learning. Having a regular home reading schedule is a great way to engage your child in learning at home.  Effective homework assignments need to be purposeful: “Legitimate purposes for homework include introducing new content, practicing a skill or process that students can do independently but not fluently, elaborating on information that has been addressed in class to deepen students’ knowledge and providing opportunities to explore topics of their own interest.” (Marzano and Pickering, Special Topic/The Case For and Against Homework, March 2007)
