Requesting a Transfer to CBe-learn from another CBE School for the 2021-2022 School Year for Online Learning
Transferring to CBe-learn is a commitment for the full 2021-22 school year. Students who transfer to CBe-learn from alternative programs or schools with capped enrolment/lotteries will not have their space held and would need to go through the transfer or lottery process again if they wish to return in future years.
Parents/guardians must review the CBe-learn school website and be aware of the requirements for parent/caregiver support and home technology. We also recommend completing the Online Self and Family Assessment. If parents share joint custody, all parents/guardians must agree with the decision to transfer.
To request a transfer to CBe-learn for 2021-22:
1. Complete the Parent Acknowledgement of Understanding for CBe-learn form.
2. Complete a transfer form:
3. Submit both forms to the student’s current or designated school (if going into Grade 1 to 9 next year) or designated high school (for Grade 10 to 12) by Friday, April 23, at 4 p.m. You can choose whether to complete the forms in print or digitally:
- Printed Forms: Print, complete and sign both forms. Contact the student’s current or designated school to schedule a time to provide the forms to the Principal/Assistant Principal. or
- Digital Forms: Complete both forms digitally. Email them to the current or designated school’s main inbox, listed on the school website. The email must be sent from the parent/legal guardian (or independent student), using the email address on file with CBE.
Students entering Grades 10 to 12 next year should review the list of available high school courses offered through CBe-learn, prior to submitting a transfer request.
If enrolment in grades 1-9 exceeds available CBe-learn resources, a lottery may be initiated for specific grade levels. If enrollment at the Senior High grades exceeds available resources, a draw may be initiated. If a lottery/draw is necessary, all the requests received by schools by April 23 at 4 p.m. will be included, by grade.
If you submit a request, CBe-learn will respond by May 7. All of the student’s parents/guardians (or the independent student) will be sent an email confirming whether the transfer has been approved.
If you have any questions, please contact your current or designated school.

CBe-learn only accepts resident CBE students. A resident CBE student is a student where at least one parent/legal guardian (or the independent student) physically resides within the geographical boundary of CBE, and at least one parent/legal guardian (or the independent student) is not of the Roman Catholic faith. Regardless of living or parenting arrangements, parents/legal guardians must only identify one primary address, which must be within the geographical boundary of CBE.
