​​Regular Program at the CBE

Even though most of our schools offer a regular program, no two are quite the same. All schools teach according to Alberta Education’s mandated curriculum, however a school’s focus, optional courses and school activities are as unique as every school.​​​

Program, Focus & Approach

General Expectations of Students

  • To attend school regularly
  • To arrive to school and each individual class punctually
  • To do their best work at all times
  • To complete all assignments either in class, after school, or for homework
  • To seek help from teachers or resources when necessary
  • To respect the rights and property of others
  • To be polite and respectful
  • To keep the school neat and clean
  • To be responsible for their own belongings
  • To be clean and tidy, both in personal care and dress
  • To be responsible for their behaviour, and to behave in a courteous manner
  • To replace or pay for any school property which they have destroyed, broken, damaged or lost

These guidelines are intended to support School Board Policies and regulations to ensure that teachers, students, and parents are aware of what is allowed and expected in the school. 

Homework Assignments

Each of the areas listed below should be part of your regular homework routine:

  • Students can access the D2L website to view homework assignments and handouts for core subjects.
  • Completion of work not finished in class.
  • Completion of long-term assignments. If an assignment is due in 2-3 weeks.
  • Review of work taken each day. Studies have shown that 70% of material.
  • Study for exams and tests. Students should review daily.
  • Students should be prepared to do an hour of study or review 5 nights a week.
  • Each teacher is available for extra help 1-2 times weekly, before/after school or during lunch. A sign is posted in their classrooms to inform students of their availability for a given week.

​​Middle Years at the CBE

Middle years learning refers to education offered to students between the ages of 10-15. These years are critical in keeping our students on the path to high school completion and their career futures. Keys for student success include: participating in hands-on, purposeful and relevant learning; creating positive relationships with peers, teachers and other adults; and being actively involved in the community and feeling supported by family, businesses and other organizations that surround them.

Learn more about our students in their middle years, including how their learning will change and how you can support your child, visit the CBE website.​

​​Exploring Career Choices

For Grades 5 to 9 at the CBE, we offer Career & Technology Foundations (CTF). This is an inquiry-based, hands-on program that focuses on essential skills common to occupational areas, and our students personalize their learning based on their interests and passions.​​​
