Message from the Board of Trustees
Every four years, citizens of Calgary elect trustees to govern the Calgary Board of Education. Trustees are elected during the municipal election at the same time that our mayor and city councilors are elected.
Trustees hold important roles. They provide leadership for the CBE by defining the vision, Results and Operational Expectations for the organization on behalf of its community.
Our next municipal election will take place on Oct. 16, 2017. If you are interested in learning more about becoming a public school board trustee, an information evening is being planned for June 13, 2017.
More information about the event will be posted on our website. For more information on the municipal election, please visit Calgary.ca .
Message from the Chief Superintendent
It’s May and our high school graduation ceremonies are upon us once again. Graduation is a time of reflection and celebration. It is a time for our students to look back on their journey with us, and to think about what they have achieved.
Whether our graduates have joined us for just a short time, or right from kindergarten, I believe that the time they have spent with us has helped them grow as people and to develop a life-long love of learning.
Our graduates can be justifiably proud of their achievements. I would like to express my gratitude to their families, friends, teachers, principals, support staff and their fellow students for the significant role they played in helping each graduate reach his or her goals.
We can all celebrate the outstanding accomplishments of our graduates as they mark this important milestone in their lives.
I know I speak for everyone at the CBE when I say we are all extremely proud of our students. I extend our heartfelt congratulations and good luck to the graduates of 2017.
We are accepting registrations on an ongoing basis for new students for the 2017-18 school year. For more information about how to register, please visit the registration page on our website.
