Student success is at the centre of all our decisions. Achieving student success requires commitment from every part of CBE's community – employees, students, parents, industry leaders and government. It requires a vision of what success looks like for each student and a plan for how we get there.
Education Plan guides our work and connects each employee in CBE to our ultimate goal of student success. Everything we do to support students falls under four categories within this plan; learning excellence, people excellence, collaborative partnership and strategic resourcing. Our plan is also aligned with the direction of Alberta Education and the principles of inclusiveness, fairness, diversity, belonging, citizenship, choice, engagement and excellence.
Student, staff and parent perspectives also inform the development of the education plan. These perspectives are gathered from a variety of sources in recognition of the important role we all play in supporting the Board of Trustees' priorities for student success. The following input and feedback has been considered during the 2022-23 school year:
- School development plans that incorporate perspectives provided by students, staff, parents and school councils
- System-wide parent survey
- Teacher focus groups
- Area leadership meetings with principals and assistant principals
- Discussions with education directors, service unit directors and other leaders
- Superintendents' Team meetings
The results of the system-wide parent survey are available here.
Education Plan Frameworks
The CBE Education Plan identifies the goal to create strong student achievement and well-being for lifelong success in the area of Learning Excellence. A key shift in our new Education Plan is the development of frameworks in key areas of focus that are research informed and will endure over time.
The frameworks are aligned with our commitment to student achievement, equity and well-being. Through the system-wide implementation of the frameworks, key outcomes identified in the Education Plan will support our leaders and teachers in the achievement of student success.
