​​About the CBE

The CBE is the largest school district in Western Canada. Our mission is to ensure each student, in keeping with his or her individual abilities and gifts, completes high school with a foundation of learning necessary to thrive in life, work and continued learning. You can look on the CBE website for more information. ​​​

​​CBE-Wide Policies & Guidelines

We have several policies and regulations that guide the CBE’s board-wide work, including:

  • Governance policies, enabling the Board of Trustees to effectively lead, direct, inspire and control the outcomes and operations of the district

  • Administrative regulations, the set of rules, expectations, and guidelines identified by the Chief Superintendent that support and align the operation of the CBE 

  • Results policies that set clear direction for student success

​In addition, the Education ​Act from Alberta Education sets out the goals, roles and responsibilities of Alberta’s Early Childhood Services to Grade 12 education system.​​​​​​​

​​School Development Plan

​Each year, our school prepares a development plan with input from teachers, school staff, students and parents. We review many sources of data, including report cards, provincial achievement test results and school surveys. Based on this information, we create our plan identifying targeted areas for growth. Our school development plan is not meant to represent all of the work that takes place in our school, but rather it focuses on specific areas for improvement.​​​

 Contact Us Page | About - Contact Us, Contact Info Updates

​Contact Information Updates

Please notify the school office immediately with any changes of address, telephone numbers (home, business and/or cell), email address or emergency contact numbers. It is critical that we have a current record of contact information on file so we can reach you or other emergency contacts. Please also be sure to provide us with a current copy of any custody agreements.​​

Concerns & Complaints

We know that the success of your student is dependent on a strong partnership between families and the CBE. If you have a concern, it can usually be addressed at the classroom level. Your first step is to arrange to speak privately with your child’s teacher. If you feel your issue is still unresolved, please contact your principal. If you and the school are unable to find a resolution, please see our Concerns & Complaints​ page for additional information, including the process to contact your Area Director. ​​​​

​​Personal Information (FOIP)

The CBE is bound by the Freedom of Information and Privacy Act (FOIP)​, which has two purposes:

  1. To provide individuals with greater access to information from public organizations.
  2. To protect individual privacy. 

​Our school will provide information to parents/guardians regarding their child’s progress in school. We do not disclose information to other parties unless a specific request with signed authorization is made by a parent/guardian. There are some routine school-related activities where personal information is collected about students that may be disclosed. Examples of these might be displaying student work in hallways or publishing achievements on our school website.

​Lockdowns

All CBE schools are required to practice lockdowns in the same way that we practice fire drills. The procedures for lockdowns are developed with the Calgary Police Service and are part of each school’s Emergency Response Plan. If you have questions about lockdown drills or lockdown procedures, please contact your principal.
 

Evacuation Procedures

In the event that the school needs to be evacuated for any reason, all staff have been trained according to CBE standards. All schools have a primary and a secondary evacuation site. In the event of an evacuation, you will receive an email, phone or SMS notification from the school.
