Education Act

The Education Act comes into effect for all Alberta school jurisdictions on Sept. 1, 2019.  The Minister of Education issued 21 new regulations to support this new legislation. The CBE is reviewing all Administrative Regulations, protocols and practices to ensure alignment with the new legislation and proposed regulations. Revisions to CBE Board Policies and Administrative Regulations will occur throughout the 2019/2020 school year; priority will be given to changes that impact schools.  

All school jurisdictions continue to operate under the School Act and its 16 regulations through Aug. 31, 2019.  

We are committed to working with the provincial government, our staff and parents to continue to make decisions in the best interests of our students.
