All research conducted in the Calgary Board of Education (CBE) requires approval from the CBE Research & Strategy department. If the application is approved the researcher will receive a letter that will allow them to approach CBE principals for permission to conduct research in the school. Approval to conduct research from the CBE does not obligate any school or individual to participate in the proposed research. The school based principal must be the first point of contact for any school based research.
The CBE values educational research, however we are also mindful that students have been entrusted to our schools
for their education, and thus external research will not be done at the expense of students’ academic programs or well-being.
Who can apply?
Applications are accepted from:
CBE employees conducting research as part of course work or graduate degrees, or conducting research in CBE schools for other professional reasons
Post-secondary faculty or students who are not CBE employees
Institutionally funded projects or non-profit external organizations (e.g., universities, colleges, agencies, hospitals)
How to Apply
email@example.com with any questions.
Please note that we will not have staff available to review research applications between June 22 and August 24. Researchers may continue to submit applications during this time, with the understanding that review will not resume until after August 24. Reviews started after August 24 may take between 8-12 weeks to complete. We thank all applicants for their interest.
