CBE-Wide Policies & Guidelines

We have several policies and regulations that guide the CBE’s board-wide work, including:

  • Governance policies, enabling the Board of Trustees to effectively lead, direct, inspire and control the outcomes and operations of the district

  • Administrative regulations, the set of rules, expectations, and guidelines identified by the Chief Superintendent that support and align the operation of the CBE 

  • Results policies that set clear direction for student success

​In addition, the School Act from Alberta Education sets out the goals, roles and responsibilities of Alberta’s Early Childhood Services to Grade 12 education system.​​​

​The CBE’s Three-Year Education Plan

The CBE has a Three-Year Education Plan that connects each of our schools and employees to the ultimate goal of student success. The plan is aligned with the direction of Alberta Education and focused in four categories: personalize learning, build professional capital, steward our resources and engage our stakeholders.​​​​

​Personal Information (FOIP)

The CBE is bound by the Freedom of Information and Privacy Act (FOIP)​, which has two purposes:

  1. To provide individuals with greater access to information from public organizations.
  2. To protect individual privacy. 

​Our school will provide information to parents/guardians regarding their child’s progress in school. We do not disclose information to other parties unless a specific request with signed authorization is made by a parent/guardian. There are some routine school-related activities where personal information is collected about students that may be disclosed. Examples of these might be displaying student work in hallways or publishing achievements on our school website.

Confidentiality

Parents/caregivers will be asked to share students’ personal information with the school staff or give their consent for staff to access students’ personal information held by other individuals or agencies. Parents/caregivers may also be asked to allow the school to share students’ personal information with individuals outside of Hull School.

In most cases, parents/caregivers must provide written consent before Hull School can share students’ personal history or information with others. There are a few situations where information about a student may be shared with others without the parents/caregivers permission.

These situations include:

  • The receipt of a legal subpoena: a judge asks for the information.
  • A medical emergency.
  • Information received by Hull School staff suggesting there has been child abuse or neglect.
  • If the Minister of Child and Family Services presents Hull School with a court order.

The Calgary Board of Education Administrative Regulation 6024 - Student Records lists other situations in which information can be released.If parents/caregivers have any questions about the confidentiality of your records, please speak to your school transition counsellor, school principal or program director.

You may also contact the Alberta Government’s Information and Privacy commissioner at 1-888-878-4044.
