​​CBE-Wide Policies & Guidelines

We have several policies and regulations that guide the CBE’s board-wide work, including:

  • Governance policies, enabling the Board of Trustees to effectively lead, direct, inspire and control the outcomes and operations of the district

  • Administrative regulations, the set of rules, expectations, and guidelines identified by the Chief Superintendent that support and align the operation of the CBE 

  • Results policies that set clear direction for student success

​In addition, the Education ​Act from Alberta Education sets out the goals, roles and responsibilities of Alberta’s Early Childhood Services to Grade 12 education system.​​​​​​​

​​​​​The CBE Education Plan

The CBE Education Plan​ guides our work and connects students and employees to our ultimate goal of student success. The plan aligns with Alberta Education's direction and focuses on four categories: personalize learning, build professional capital, steward our resources and engage our stakeholders.​​​​

​​Personal Information (FOIP)

The CBE is bound by the Freedom of Information and Privacy Act (FOIP)​, which has two purposes:

  1. To provide individuals with greater access to information from public organizations.
  2. To protect individual privacy. 

​Our school will provide information to parents/guardians regarding their child’s progress in school. We do not disclose information to other parties unless a specific request with signed authorization is made by a parent/guardian. There are some routine school-related activities where personal information is collected about students that may be disclosed. Examples of these might be displaying student work in hallways or publishing achievements on our school website.


Governance & Legislation

Custody of Children

School is a Positive Environment for Teaching and Learning

The CBE has a policy of neutrality. Quite simply this means that in every, and all, situations where there may be a custody dispute between the student's parents it is the responsibility of the teachers, the staff, the schools and the CBE to remain neutral at all times. CBE staff are not permitted to provide letters of opinion or support or to be interviewed by lawyers, parents, or other professionals pertaining to a custody dispute.  If you have extraordinary concerns regarding the safety of your child, please discuss them with the Principal of your child's school.

Legal Documents

The school requires a current true copy of the order governing the custody/access of a registered student to be kept in the child's file at school.  This does not mean that the school or the CBE are in the position of enforcing that order.  The School Act requires us to have a copy of the order so that we can clearly identify who has legal access and consequently who is entitled to review the student record.  It is the custodial parent's responsibility to see that the school has the most recent order governing the custody/access of the student.

This policy is enforced by our Administrative Regulation 3059, which can be reviewed along on the CBE website
