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​.​​​​​​

Share Your Feedback on High School Scenarios

​The CBE is launching its next phase of high school engagement.

Two scenarios have been developed to balance enrolment at CBE high schools and offer  students access, flexibility and choice in programming given available space and resources. These scenarios are now available on the CBE website.

Scenario development was guided by feedback gathered from parents, staff and students in fall 2019, CBE values and planning principles, available space and resources and other factors. The scenarios represent a responsible approach that anticipates limited space and resources into the future and allocates resources where they will have the most positive impact for students overall.

Both scenarios provide quality learning opportunities that allow students to meet the requirements to complete high school. They do this in three key ways.
  1. Provide a more equitable learning experience for all high school students.
  2. Maintain a regular program at every high school.
  3. Allow for alternative programs and academic enrichment when possible.
 
We have posted scenario details before active engagement begins so you have time to go through all of it before providing your feedback. Without the full picture, it may be challenging for you to respond meaningfully to the online survey and other engagement opportunities.

You can share your feedback on the scenarios in these ways:
