​​​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.​​​

Program, Focus & Approach

Traditional Learning Centre Program

Families whose children are in CBE TLC Alternative Programs of Choice have made the decision to support a program where a successful student demonstrates self-management and organizational skills and a commitment to daily homework. The following guidelines below by division are taken from CBE’s Administrative Regulation 3066 - Homework.

Division II (Grades 5 & 6) 

Formal assignments may be given at the discretion of the teacher, particularly for pupils who need special attention or help, but in general, assignments should be of the reading or study type. Parents should be made aware of the teacher's general requirements with respect to home study, and the CBE homework expectations, but no school requirement should exceed 20 minutes in length in total.

Division III (Grades 7-9) 

Students are expected to study from one-half to one hour per school night in total.

Assignment Expectations

Students are expected to submit assignments on time. If an assignment cannot be completed due to a reasonable situation, parents should contact the teacher to discuss arrangements. If at all possible, this should be done prior to the due date.

Parents are able to access D2L or Google Classroom through their child’s username and password. This is where information regarding deadlines for major assignments and tests can be found. Many teachers also use this tool to post assignments and rubrics. D2L should be checked on a regular basis as a way to stay informed about what is happening in classes.

​​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.​​​
