Fees & Waivers

This spring the Provincial Government introduced Bill 1 – An Act to Reduce School Fees. This new bill will have an impact on school and transportation fees across the province. 

For the 2017-18 school year, the CBE Instructional Supplies and Materials fees will no longer be charged. Optional courses, educational enhancements, programs of choice, travel, and extra-curricular activities will still have associated fees.  
The CBE fee schedule has been sent to Alberta Education for review and approval. We expect to have more information about fees and waivers later in the summer. We are committed to making that information available to our families as soon as it is available. Payment arrangement deadline will be the end of October.
Thank you for your understanding and patience with the different process this year.



​The CBE 2016-17 operating budget was approved by the Board of Trustees on June 21, 2016. Fees for the 2016-17 school year are finalized. To keep fees as low as possible, the CBE is committed to being as efficient as possible in the provision of services. Costs of providing the services include direct labour and supplies, as well as the cost of fee waivers and uncollectible accounts.

It’s important to know that we have a waiver process for families who can’t afford to pay the fees.
