Success Coach

In line with All in for Youth goals, the Success Coach aims to connect youth to positive adults, help remove barriers and help change attitudes and behaviours. The Success Coach’s role is to work closely with students and to support those facing challenges and barriers throughout their lives. Barriers that students may face, but not limited to, may be: access to transportation, academic struggles, minor addiction concerns, financial need, minor health and mental health concerns, challenging living situations, and lack of positive role models. The success coach’s role is to strive to meet the unique and individualized needs of children in order to increase academic engagement and success.

Bowness’ Success Coach is Allison Lawryk. Her office is located in the Learning Commons. She can be reached by phone at 403-286-5092, voicemail 3156 or by email at aylawryk@cbe.ab.ca.

Support for Students at the CBE

Our students’ success is our top priority and we understand that our students live complex lives and that many factors both in the school and outside of school can affect their ability to learn. The CBE offers a variety of services (such as Culture and Linguistic Support, Exceptional and Special Needs, and Psychological Services) to support students, their families and our school, so students can be successful learners. Visit the CBE website to learn more.​​​​

Friday, Sept 24 is a system-wide non-instructional day so there are no classes for CBE students. Have a safe long weekend and please continue to follow all public health measures #WeAreCBE https://t.co/2BCAzks4jb
