Engaging on School Budgets​​ and School Fees

Each spring, our school prepares a school budget for the upcoming school year and sets school fees for some activities and services. As we prepare the school budget, engaging with staff, parents and students is an important part of the process.

Watch for news and information on our website and in emails sent through SchoolMessenger. Another great way to keep informed is by attending our school council meetings.

In addition to news stories, we'll post information about upcoming engagement opportunities on this page. We'll also share feedback gathered at meetings and through online surveys on this page.

If you have any questions, please contact the principal. ​​​

School Budget Engagement

We know we make better decisions to support student learning when we build understanding and work together. That's why we'll be sharing a short presentation about the CBE budget and how we develop our own school budget at our  school council meeting, Wednesday, May 22, 6:30-8:00pm. 

At this meeting, you will learn:

  • Where funding for the CBE comes from and how it is spent
  • About the Resource Allocation Method (RAM) used to fund schools
  • How we estimate, then finalize, RAM for our school

There will also be an opportunity to ask questions. Please join us Wednesday, May 22 at 6:30pm in the Learning Commons. If you would like to provide feedback, please see the form in the Resources section. You may return it to davidthompson@cbe.ab.ca
