​​CBE Budget Process

Our corporate budget and financial information contains comprehensive information about how we fund our schools and maximize dollars directed to students in classrooms.

We fund our schools via a process we call the Resour​ce Allocation Method (RAM)​. The RAM is designed to allocate resources equitably while providing choice in the assignment and deployment of those resources to meet the unique needs of students within their schools. Not all resources for the school are allocated through the RAM. Other school costs are paid for centrally, such as utility costs, transportation costs, custodial services and many other costs that are managed on behalf of the school.

Parents or community members who would like to learn more about the RAM and how our school budgets, are invited to have a conversation with our principal. It is the principal’s job to develop the budget based on the RAM provided. School Councils are encouraged to provide advice about this process.​​​

Inner reflection on this shortest day of the year. Thank you Elder Saa’kokoto for your teaching. “Get us to the point where we will see our footprints in the snow.” ~Elder Saa’kokoto @Indigenous_cbe #WinterSolstice https://t.co/HnGe3Cjo95

RT @SOSAlberta: Make no mistake - Kenney is very deliberate with his messaging. @jkenney believes high quality education should be an *option for parents*. We believe high quality public education is the RIGHT OF ALL CHILDREN. Who will defend that right with us? Join Us. #ABEd #ABleg #ABPoli https://t.co/FAomwL1gHn

RT @joececiyyc: RT if you've had a shocking increase in your utility bills lately. And remember: if the UCP hadn't removed the price cap on the Regulated Rate Option for electricity (implemented by the NDP govt), prices per KWh would be less than half of what consumers are seeing today. #ableg
