Outstanding School Fees

You can also sign up for services like transportation or noon supervision, pay fees and view or print receipts and statements for all of your children in one, central location. The system is mobile-friendly and works with your smartphone or tablet. Find technical help here.
School fees for 2021-22 are due when assigned. For school fee inquiries, please contact your child’s school directly.

No child is ever denied access to an education in the CBE because of an inability to pay. The CBE has a waiver process for families who can’t afford to pay the fees. Visit our Waivers page for more information and the documents required as proof of income or extraordinary circumstance.
Any family needing a waiver is encouraged to apply to the City of Calgary Fair Entry Program to prove income for a CBE waiver, as well as access other benefits of the program. This is optional for families and the CBE will continue to accept other approved documents as proof of income.
Note | Waiver applications are available through your MyCBE/PowerSchool account.
Students Assigned to Calgary Transit
For students using Calgary Transit, families will need to purchase monthly bus passes available at many convenience and grocery stores.
All families can apply for the City of Calgary's Fair Entry Program for the low income Calgary Transit pass. This program offers a streamlined application process for City subsidy programs, including reduced rates for transit passes.
