Budget

​​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.​​​

RT @OSGAndrew: This week, we spent time reflecting and learning about the experiences of children in residential schools. We discussed how children should feel in school, as well as how we can help others feel safe and welcome at school. https://t.co/o8U57HNteJ

RT @OSGPaddock: Room 15 brainstormed, designed, reflected and modified our version of an Orange Shirt Day t-shirt. We’re so proud to have our message displayed. Ask me about the choices we made and about our learning this week. #TruthAndReconciliationthrougheducation https://t.co/Czyxw5vqco

RT @UsihChristopher: The CBE is committed to action toward Truth and Reconciliation. Sept 30 is National Day for Truth and Reconciliation & #OrangeShirtDay. This year, the CBE is guided by the question posed by Kainai Blackfoot Elder Casey Eagle Speaker, who asked us, “What is something you can do?” https://t.co/HQ2H47NKO4
