Students will be sent home with a handout for parents advising of upcoming conference dates. Conferences will be booked online through your MY CBE Account (the same account you pay your fees through). If you do not have your account set up, please contact the school office to obtain instructions. If you are unable to make these conferences, please contact your child’s teacher to set up an alternative time.
Cultural and Linguistic Support
We help students and families from diverse linguistic and cultural backgrounds. We help you get to know our schools and our system, and to feel at home with us.
You can request an interpreter to help you communicate effectively in a meeting with a teacher or CBE staff if you are a parent or guardian. Having an interpreter at a meeting will improve everyone’s understanding of the discussion. There is no cost to families for language interpretation services. For more information on this service, please visit the CBE Interpretation and Translations Services webpage.
Parent Concerns & Open Communication
Parents are encouraged to bring concerns, questions and suggestions directly to the school – first to the appropriate teacher, then to the resource teacher or to administration. While we may not always have solutions, we promise to give our best efforts to be understanding, honest and accommodating. Open and honest communication usually reveals that both the school and parents want exactly the same thing - namely that which is best for the individual student and his or her learning.
