​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

Philosophical Framework

Crossing Park views itself as a Literacy Centre devoted to developing abilities in students. Our primary focuses are on Academic Literacy, Digital Literacy, Cultural Literacy and Social Literacy. 

We are excited about having scheduled Professional Learning Days and Early Dismissal Fridays. These days provide staff members with additional opportunities to engage in professional dialogue, collective inquiry and continuous learning.

Student Agendas

All teachers participate in an online school agenda. Parents are encouraged to review the agenda on a daily basis with their child, as student homework will be recorded in the agenda.

Homework Guidelines

The CBE is dedicated to promoting the development of good study habits. We believe that home study can contribute to this objective as well as to the reinforcement of learning. Two kinds of study are recognized, the completion of written or “hand-in” assignments, and the informal study of material related to subjects under study in school.

The nature and amount of home study recommended are as follows:
Division 1: Parents and teachers should encourage children to read each evening. No formal assignments should be made, but from 5 – 10 minutes of systematic study per night is recommended.
Division 2: 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 kept to a maximum of 20 minutes per evening. 
Division 3: Students are expected to study or work on formal assignments for 30 minutes to 1 hour per school evening.

​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.​​​
