NEW Online Process for 2015-2016 Course Change Requests

Grade 11 & 12 students please use the following Google Doc link to request changes to your current schedule.

http://goo.gl/forms/w4UZ5vL12M


If you have forgotten your password please use the CBE Self-Serve Password Tool  https://webapps.cbe.ab.ca/PasswordReset


Your Google address is  username@educbe.ca


You must use your CBE account to access the form.

 

 

Course Request Guidelines:


1- Course changes will not be allowed based on teacher preference, time of day that students wish to take the class or the enrollment of friends in specific classes.


2- It is very important that students connect with their counsellors through the form if they have completed a course in Summer School but are still registered in the class, or if students do not have the pre-requisite to take a specific class.


3- Please use this online form for “dropping” courses- Students in grade 12 are required to have a minimum of three courses per semester taken at Crescent Heights HS.


4- After the request form is submitted, students will not be able to change it or re-submit it. Students email and phone number will be included in the form. Counsellor’s will contact you if they need clarification or have questions for you. This limitation on requests means that students must be thorough in their explanation and mindful that their initial request is also their final request.


5- Please be patient. Counsellors will be working through hundreds of requests within a limited time frame. You will be able to see any changes made in HomeLogic, and Counsellors will be in contact with you through email or by phone.


6- During the first 3 days of classes (September 1st,2nd &3rd)  counsellors will be meeting only with students with “See Counsellor” on their schedule.

 

 

New Grade 10 course change information:


Grade 10 students were placed in courses based on their grade 9 teachers’ recommendations and their requests for options. Changes have been made based on the requests from the Jr. High’s/Middle Schools.


Drop –in times for grade 10 students requesting changes to their schedule will occur on Friday September 4th. Grade 10 students will have very limited opportunity to change courses based on course availability and will not need to fill out the online form. Further information will be communicated to them on the first day of school.

 

For any further information or questions please contact Cory Hall, Student Services Learning Leader, at cthall@cbe.ab.ca

BUSSING UPDATE: Important information regarding rebates and tax credits

CBE Transportation has been tasked with reducing costs by $5,000,000 so that the costs of bussing students is no longer subsidized by the funding intended for instruction. The changes to transportation for the 2015-2016 school year reflect the efforts of transportation to ensure more money is available to fund our core business of teaching and learning.

Going forward CTS rebates will not be issued, but parents will be able to apply for the tax credit when they file their income tax. An advantage for students taking CTS buses is that if they miss the bus they are usually able to catch another one about 15 minutes afterwards.

Calgary students sweep social media with mental health campaign

By Heather Yourex and Mia Sosiak Global News

 

A social media hashtag created by Calgary high school students to raise money and awareness about mental health has exploded across Canada.

 

The hashtag #CHHSLetsTalk began with a modest goal of raising a few hundred dollars, but has been trending nationwide since Monday.

 

Brett Rothery, a Crescent Heights High School student, helped launch the campaign.

 

Over the holidays, Rothery, 16, and a few friends, handwrote 1,400 Post-It notes carrying inspirational quotes and the #CHHSLetsTalk hashtag.

Parent Access to Student Progress

 

D2L

As many of you are aware, the CBE now has a number of tools to help parents and students track and monitor their progress.  Teachers are using either HomeLogic or D2L technology to make marks available to students and parents  .  Please note, if teachers are using D2L as a marks program, you will not see their grades in Teacher Logic until the end of the term.  However, you can access student marks through D2L.  Parents can go online and access grades and login history. Parents have personal parent access by logging into the CBE MyAccount application https://webapps.cbe.ab.ca/myaccount/Account/LogOn and clicking on the D2L link. The site will provide access to student grades and login information.

HomeLogic

A parent portal called “HomeLogic” was recently introduced by the Calgary Board of Education. This online environment allows parents/legal guardians to check their child’s progress and attendance online throughout the school year. The specific information that can be viewed about your child is their attendance, schedule, transcript and demographics. In order to access HomeLogic it is important that the school have the parent’s/legal guardian’s current email address on file. Please email it to crescentheights@cbe.ab.ca. This is where your username and password will be emailed at the time of registration to HomeLogic. Once the school has your email address, please visit the website https://sirswebapps.cbe.ab.ca/homelogic. Click on the “New User?” prompt to create an account. Please note you will need your student’s CBE ID number to register as a new user.
