2020-21: A Year of Challenge and Opportunity
The Calgary Board of Education’s 2020-21 budget was approved by the Board of Trustees on May 26, 2020. The meeting can be viewed on the Board's YouTube channel.
As required by the Education Act, the CBE must submit a balanced budget to Alberta Education by May 31.
For the 2020-21 school year, Alberta Education has indicated we will receive an additional $20.6 million when compared to 2019-20 funding levels. Even though we will receive an increase in funding, we expect to welcome 3,000 additional students, open three new schools, and face other increasing costs.
This means our dollars will need to stretch further. We will continue to prioritize dollars and resources directly to students and classrooms that align with the funding we receive within the government’s new K to 12 education funding framework.
