​​About the CBE

The CBE is the largest school district in Western Canada. Our mission is to ensure each student, in keeping with his or her individual abilities and gifts, completes high school with a foundation of learning necessary to thrive in life, work and continued learning. You can look on the CBE website for more information. ​​​

Many students, staff and their families are @fortcalgary today commemorating the #NationalDayForTruthAndReconciliation. We are proud of @Indigenous_cbe team members worked in friendship with others from @cityofcalgary, @CCSD_edu & more, who planned this event. #WeAreCBE https://t.co/U0cfNFymgY

This week CBE schools took part in Truth & Reconciliation Week, honouring victims & survivors of residential schools. Elder Casey Eaglespeaker asked staff, “What is something you can do?” This question reminds us that each of us plays a role in Truth and Reconciliation. #WeAreCBE https://t.co/Go62sgSXnL
