Every year, the CBE must submit a balanced budget to Alberta Education by May 31. The CBE's balanced budget, as with any budget, includes inputs (where funds come from) and outputs (how funds are spent). At the CBE every dollar spent supports student learning.Where funds come from:Alberta Education provides over 90% of the Calgary Board of Education's funding.The Calgary Board of Education also receives funding from other government departments and other sources such as fees from parents, school fundraising activities, facility rentals and investment income.How funds are spent:During the budget process, the CBE maximizes the dollars available to support student learning and ensures sufficient budget resources will be available to allow the CBE to meet health, safety, infrastructure and other needs.The CBE receives a capped grant for system administration. For 2020-21, this amount was 3.15 per cent of all funding provided to us by Alberta Education.
