​​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.​​​

Lakeshore was honoured to welcome Elder Faye Heavyshield and her daughter, artist Hali Heavyshield, to our school today. During our assembly, they talked about the importance of following passions, learning from all cultures and the value of being unique. 1/3 https://t.co/P1trdoX76y

Helping to open a new school has been a wonderful experience, but the roller coaster of emotions has been an interesting and unexpected challenge. This graphic helped me realize that it’s all part of the process of building something amazing. #LakeshoreLoyal #WeAreCBE https://t.co/EHgnHh53RE
