In June 2021, the CBE finalized a sustainable plan to balance enrolment at 20 CBE high schools. This plan was developed through the high school engagement process, and resulted in some changes to be implemented starting in the 2022-23 school year.
If you have a student entering Grade 10 or making changes in their school or program for Grades 11 or 12 in 2022-23, you will want to confirm high school designations.
Students will automatically be registered at their designated high school. Any students interested in attending a different high school will need to follow the high school transfer process.
These changes do not affect students with exceptional needs in specialized programs. They also do not include the following special settings: Alternative High School, CBe-learn, CBE Home Education, Discovering Choices/Outreach and Louise Dean High School.
In situations where there is a change in designation for a community and students are already attending a high school in 2021-22, the following will apply:
- Regular program and IB students attending a high school in the 2021-22 school year can stay to complete their program; this does not apply to siblings at other schools.
- Students enrolled in Arts-Centred Learning in 2021-22 can complete the program at the school where they started.
- Students enrolled in the Spanish Bilingual Program in 2021-22 can complete the program at the school where they started if there is a minimum of 25 students/grade enrolled.
- Starting in September 2022, students who were enrolled in French Immersion at Lester B. Pearson will attend Western Canada for French Immersion or attend their designated school for the regular program.
Please review the information below to confirm school designations for 2022-23 and beyond.
