Community Engagement Shaping the Future of High School

Shaping the Future of High School

Thank You for Your Feedback!​

​​Two scenarios have been developed to balance enrolment at CBE high schools and offer  students access, flexibility and choice in programming given available space and resources.

Scenario development was guided by feedback gathered from parents, staff and students in fall 2019, CBE values and planning principles, available space and resources and other factors. The scenarios represent a responsible approach that anticipates limited space and resources into the future and allocates resources where they will have the most positive impact for students overall.

Both scenarios provide quality learning opportunities that allow students to meet the requirements to complete high school. They do this in three key ways.

  1. Provide a more equitable learning experience for all high school students.

  2. Maintain a regular program at every high school.

  3. Allow for alternative programs and academic enrichment when possible.

Learn About the Scenarios

Please watch this video​, which will provide you with a high-level introduction to the scenarios.



​Since we cannot hold in-person sessions this winter, we have put all the details we would normally share with you in-person in a comprehensive Story Map and printable materials.

  • Story Map: This website is your one-stop resource containing all the scenario details including overall, program and school-specific scenario rationale and information in graphs, maps, visuals and text.
  • Scenario Overv​iew: A four-page document with a high-level overview of the scenario rationale and key changes.
  • Printable School Information for Scenarios​: School maps, enrolment projections and utilization rate information (this is a large file and may take some time to load)

We have posted scenario details before active engagement begins so you have time to go through all of it before providing your feedback. Without the full picture, it may be challenging for you to respond meaningfully to the online survey and other engagement opportunities.​
