Fees & Waivers

Important information on 2017-18 Fees

The CBE 2017-18 operating budget was approved by the Board of Trustees in June and the CBE Fee Schedule was approved by the Minister of Education in August.

Fees will be charged to My CBE Accounts beginning in September.

New for 2017-18 | the Instructional Material & Supplies (ISM) fee has been eliminated by the Provincial Government. Learn more from Alberta Education.

Yellow School Bus Transportation

2017-18 yellow school bus routes are posted to the Transportation pages.

The cut-off to be included in yellow school bus planning for September routes was June 11. Registrations are still being accepted. Please note that changes to bus routes for regular programs will not be made until after Thanksgiving. Transportation does not expect to make any changes to congregated stops for alternative programs based on new addresses.

Again this year a confirmation email will be sent in October to all parents/guardians who pre-registered that will include transportation fee information and payment options. You can cancel your transportation pre-registration with no financial penalty using My CBE Account or replying to the confirmation email before Oct. 31, 2017.

Waivers

No child is ever denied access to an education in the CBE because of an inability to pay. The CBE has a waiver process for families who can’t afford to pay the fees.  Visit our Waivers page for more information and the documents required as proof of income.

If you have concerns about your ability to pay your fees, please speak to your principal.

Any family needing a waiver is encouraged to apply to the City of Calgary Fair Entry Program to prove income for a CBE waiver, as well as access other benefits of the program. This is optional for families and the CBE will will continue to accept other approved documents as proof of income.

Students Assigned to Calgary Transit

For students using Calgary Transit, families will need to purchase monthly bus passes available at many convenience and grocery stores.

For the 2017-18 school year, the CBE waived transit pass program has been discontinued. 

All families can apply for the City of Calgary's Fair Entry Program for the low income Calgary Transit pass. This program offers a streamlined application process for City subsidy programs, including reduced rates for transit passes. You can find more information about the program at www.calgary.ca/fairentry.

Grade 6-12 students residing more than 2.4 km from their designated school attending a Regular Program and assigned to Calgary Transit are eligible for a rebate up to $549, meaning they will pay up to $151/year. Please ensure that you keep the passes and receipts of purchase to submit for the rebate. More information about how to claim your rebate will be provided no later than the end of October.
