​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.​​​

Our Program

We are proud to offer a high-quality comprehensive program which combines academic, complimentary, co-curricular and extra-curricular learning activities and experiences. Our students enjoy a rich school experience enhanced by a supporting emphasis on technology in teaching and learning, performing arts, fine arts, and community involvement.

  • Woodman is in our second year of developing a Pyramid Response to Intervention (RTI).  Our goal is “to create a systematic process that ensures every child receives the additional time and support needed to learn at high levels.”  Using the formulae - Time plus Targeted Instruction = Learning (T + TI = Learning).  Where the variables are targeted instruction and time, and the constant is learning.
    • We need to ask the right questions
      • What do we want for our children?
      • What do our children need?
      • What do we need to do?
  • Woodman uses our Professional Learning Communities (PLC) as the vehicle for our RTI model.  During our PLC time (every second Friday) teachers will meet and discuss the following questions.
      • What Essential Student Learning Outcome(s) did we cover?  What did we want them to know?
      • Who got the ESLO and who did not?
      • How did we assess the outcome? (summative versus formative assessment)
      • What instructional strategy did we use the first time?  More of the same will not produce different results!  We need to use a different strategy for the re-teach.
      • Which teacher will teach the tutorial to the students who need either more time or an additional strategy?  Which teacher will enhance the curriculum for those students who “got” the ESLO?

​Middle Years at the CBE

Middle years learning refers to education offered to students between the ages of 10-15. These years are critical in keeping our students on the path to high school completion and their career futures. Keys for student success include: participating in hands-on, purposeful and relevant learning; creating positive relationships with peers, teachers and other adults; and being actively involved in the community and feeling supported by family, businesses and other organizations that surround them.

Learn more about our students in their middle years, including how their learning will change and how you can support your child, visit the CBE website.​

​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.​​​
