2020-21: A Year of Challenge and Opportunity
The Calgary Board of Education’s 2020-21 budget will be presented to the Board of Trustees on May 19, 2020. You can view the meeting through our live stream starting at 12 p.m. The budget report will be available on May 15 through the Board’s Agenda & Reports.
As required by the Education Act, the CBE must submit a balanced budget to Alberta Education by May 31, subject to approval by the Board of Trustees on May 26, 2020.
For the 2020-21 school year, Alberta Education has indicated we will receive an additional $20.6 million when compared to 2019-20 funding levels. Even though we will receive an increase in funding, we expect to welcome 3,000 additional students, open three new schools, and face other increasing costs.
This means our dollars will need to stretch further. We will continue to prioritize dollars and resources directly to students and classrooms that align with the funding we receive within the government’s new K to 12 education funding framework.
