The CBE's App​​roach to Community Engagement

Dialogue is the Calgary Board of Education’s approach to community engagement. It is a mutually respectful exchange of ideas that acknowledges and celebrates the diversity within the CBE community. It represents our ongoing commitment to involve people in decisions that affect them.

We know we make better decisions when we listen and work together to solve problems and find solutions. When we do, our students are better equipped to become successful citizens who contribute their ideas, passion and energy to society.

There can be no dialogue without you. Find out more about Dialogue as well as current and past system engagement initiatives on the CBE’s website​.​​​​​​

CBE Finalizes Sustainable Plan to Balance Enrolment at High Schools

In May 2019, the CBE launched a community engagement initiative to develop a sustainable plan that balances enrolment across CBE high schools and gives students access, flexibility and choice in programming.

Based on feedback received from stakeholders, and taking into account CBE's values and planning principles, we confirm that the finalized plan​ is the same plan that was shared on June 1, 2021 for a final phase of feedback from students, staff, parents and community members.

Survey reports and details of the decision are available on our high school engagement webpage.
