Health & Wellness in School Absence Reporting

Absence Reporting

As of June 14, 2022, Alberta moved into Stage 3 of its phased plan to ease measures related to COVID-19. As a result, the Calgary Board of Education will not report student and staff absences at this time.​

​Students and staff may ​be absent for a number of reasons, including illness, and illness due to COVID-19.​​​​

Student Absences 

Families are asked to report their child's absence to the school on a daily basis. 

Note: Not all legal guardians/independent students contact the school to provide reasons for student absences.

School-Based Staffing

​On June 17, we identified 854 jobs that required substitute teachers or casual employees. 

  • Teaching jobs: 504 of 541 were filled. 
  • ​Support Staff jobs: 304 of 313 were filled.

Please note: Substitute teachers and casual ​employees may be requested for a variety of reasons, including absences due to illness or otherwise, vacancies and extra help.​

The fill figures reflect the number of substitute teachers or casual employees who accept jobs. Schools may re-allocate staff within a school if required to meet additional demands.​​​​​​​​​​​​
