Transit Rebate Discontinued for 2018-2018

On Tuesday, May 22, families received an email announcing the 2018-19 transportation service levels and fees. At the start of the 2017-18 school year students from our school moved to Calgary Transit as their mode of transportation to and from school.


For the 2018-19 school year, students will continue to access Calgary Transit as a transportation service option.


Last fall, the Calgary Board of Education provided a one-year transition rebate for the 2017-18 school year to most families at our school because the move to Calgary Transit was new for students in their community. As this is no longer a new service level, CBE will no longer provide the transit rebate. Families will be responsible for the entire cost of monthly passes for students. This is the same cost as all other students attending an Alternative Program and using Calgary Transit. Please note that the City of Calgary offers a Fair Entry program that offers low-income bus passes.


June at a Glance

June NW and North Central French Immersion Sessions


The CBE is in the midst of gathering perspectives from students, parents, staff and others on the Early and Late French Immersion Programs in northwest and north central Calgary (see engagement roadmap). To ensure we reach all families who may be interested in the Early and Late French Immersion Programs, we will be sharing information periodically about opportunities to get involved.

Invitation | As we continue the second phase of the northwest and north central French Immersion Programs engagement, we invite you to participate in scenario discussions at upcoming June sessions and through an online opportunity. Visit our Community Engagement Page to register for in-person sessions.

Scenarios | We are drafting scenarios considering all combined input and feedback to date along with CBE values and planning principles, available space in schools, financial sustainability, government legislation and more. Draft scenarios identified four additional schools to be included in the engagement process: Eric Harvie, F.E. Osborne, Tuscany and Twelve Mile Coulee. Scenarios will be posted by end of day June 1, 2018.
