Update | Noon Supervision and Yellow School Bus Transportation Fees

As the province has directed schools to move to at-home learning during the times noted above, families will not be charged noon supervision or yellow school bus transportation fees when these services are not offered.

  • Grade 7-9 students will not be charged yellow school bus transportation fees from Nov. 30, 2020 until Jan. 8, 2021.
  • Kindergarten to Grade 6 students will not be charged noon supervision or transportation fees for the week of Jan. 4-8, 2021.

Families will receive credits to their MyCBE/PowerSchool accounts. If, at any point in the remainder of the school year there is movement to at-home learning that impacts the entire system or specific grades, additional credits will be provided. At the end of the school year, Student Fees will reconcile the accounts and offer refunds to families for any amounts above $10.

Families are reminded to pay all outstanding fees.

Frequently Asked Questions

When will I get my refund?

All refunds will be processed at the end of the school year. Refunds can take up to 12 weeks to process. 

How much will I get back?

The amount you will get back will depend on the amount of fees that were paid and the number of credits you have on your account.

My child has been required to isolate, will I be refunded for the days they needed to stay home?

No. Refunds are only offered for days the CBE is not able to provide transportation or noon supervision services due to provincial direction to move to at-home learning.


​​​​Fees will be charged to your MyCBE / PowerSchool​ account beginning in October. School fees are due when assigned.

Annual system fees are set each year when the operating budget is passed by the Board of Trustees. To keep fees as low as possible, the CBE is committed to being as efficient as possible in the provision of services. Costs of providing the services include direct labour and supplies, as well as the cost of fee waivers and uncollectible accounts.

It is important to know that we have a waiver process for families who cannot afford to pay the fees.

Fees

Proposed fees for the 2021-2022 School Year

School-based fees vary by grade group and are planned to enhance student learning in each grade level. We are asking teachers to plan for a variety of experiences for students and a combination of on and off campus activities. Below is the breakdown of school-based fees.

Further explanation of each fee can be found on the linked document on the sidebar. We are proposing the following fees to parents for the 2021-2022 school year. A decision on School- Based fees will be made in June and posted to our website:

● Activity Fee $50 (on-site and off site activities)
● Active Living Experiences- $35 -$55
● Specialized Fine Arts Supply Fee ($20 Grade 1 - 5; $10 kindergarten)

● Incidental Activity fee (lunch program only $10)

Active Living Fee
In our 2019-2020 fee engagement we asked parents to identify their priorities for how fee monies are spent. A large number of parents indicated that they value and would like to see more opportunities for their children to participate in active living activities. In the past students have participated in swimming lessons. Last year students grade 4 - 5 were to have participated in climbing as an alternative to swimming, but this activity was canceled due to Covid-19. Activities of this kind have historically cost between $30 and $60 and were over and above activity fees for on-site and off-site activities.

Specialized Fine Arts Supply Fee - New Fee Proposed
All CBE students are charged a student supply fee. This fee is $40 for Grade 1 - 5 and $20 for kindergarten. This fee allows the CBE to use it’s bulk purchasing power to buy pens, pencils, erasers, crayons, scissors and other items used by students in their learning. Specialized art supplies are not eligible to be covered under the Student Supply Fee. In the 2021-2022 school year our Edgemont Fundraising Council offset the cost of these supplies with a $3000 donation to our fine arts program. These supplies include items such as textiles, sculptural materials, wood, modelling medium, yarn etc. We are proposing a new fee of $20 for grade 1- 5 students and $10 for kindergarten students to cover these costs. ($20 Grade 1-5; $10 kindergarten).

Incidental Activity Fee this is charged only to students who participate in the lunch supervision program. Funds raised through this fee pay for lunchtime activities, games and equipment. They also pay for supplies such as first aid supplies, spoons, emergency food and emergency clothing.
