Health & Wellness in School
This page will be updated daily with the most current information on student and staff absences.
Students and staff may be absent for a number of reasons, including illness, and illness due to COVID-19.
Families are asked to report their child's absence to the school on a daily basis. The CBE runs a daily report at the end of each day. The report below reflects the percentage of the school population that has been reported absent by a legal guardian or independent student due to illness on the previous school day. CBe-learn, Chinook Learning Services, Discovering Choices and Home Education are not included in the attendance data.
K-9* Students Reported Absent Due to Illness
January 20, 2022
*Due to high school scheduling and fluctuating attendance based on exam requirements, today’s system average consists of K-9 only.
Note: Not all legal guardians/independent students contact the school to provide reasons for student absences.
The Calgary Board of Education continues to maximize existing resources to respond to significant staffing pressures.
On January 21, we identified 995 jobs that required substitute teachers or casual employees.
- Teaching jobs: 468 of 722 were filled.
- Support Staff jobs: 230 of 273 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.
