The CBE's App​​roach to Community Engagement

Dialogue is the Calgary Board of Education’s approach to community engagement. It is a mutually respectful exchange of ideas that acknowledges and celebrates the diversity within the CBE community. It represents our ongoing commitment to involve people in decisions that affect them.

We know we make better decisions when we listen and work together to solve problems and find solutions. When we do, our students are better equipped to become successful citizens who contribute their ideas, passion and energy to society.

There can be no dialogue without you. Find out more about Dialogue as well as current and past system engagement initiatives on the CBE’s website​.​​​​​​

John G. Diefenbaker High School

School Planning Survey and Virtual Meeting
Learn and Share | School Planning
We know we make better decisions to support student learning when we build understanding and work together. That’s why we’ll be sharing information about school planning and asking you to share your perspectives.

During this online engagement, you will have the opportunity to:

1. Learn About
 School planning, which includes the school development plan, school budget and school fees
 How the school development plan sets the overall focus and direction for a school to improve student learning outcomes
 How the school budget provides funding to implement our school development plan
 School fees and why they are necessary

2. Participate
 Participate in our virtual SCHOOL COUNCIL/SPECIAL PARENT meeting on March 1, 2022 to learn more about school planning. There will be an opportunity to provide feedback at this meeting.
 Share your perspectives through an online survey open from March 16, 2022 to March 31, 2022.
We will send you a link to the survey as our school development plan and school budget / fees information when it’s available. We will also post it on our school website.
