Fees & Waivers

The CBE Student Fees department is available through phone Tuesday – Thursday 9am – 3pm. You can reach the Student Fees department through email during all other business hours (8am – 4pm) by emailing​

Due to the volume of inquiries we are receiving, ​a response may take several days. Thank you for your patience and understanding​


  • Noon Supervision Fees | Kindergarten to Grade 6 students were moved to at-home learning starting on Friday, May 7. Noon Supervision fees will not be charged during this period or the week of at-home learning in January.

    Fees are not charged for days the CBE is not able to provide services due to provincial direction to move to at-home learning. If your child has been required to isolate at other times during the school year, you will not be refunded noon supervision fees for the days they needed to stay home. ​
  • Transportation Fees | The decision has been made to provide a full refund of transportation fees paid to all yellow school bus riders who were registered as of Feb. 28, 2021. Learn more on the CBE Transportation page.

  • Refunds will be provided in July and August | After the last day of school, Student Fees will determine refunds. Refunds will first be provided to online payments, crediting the payment card that was used for the original payment. After this work has been completed, we will then begin the process to issue cheques for other payments. We expect all refunds to be issued by the end of August.

    We thank you for your patience as we work through this process.

Outstanding School Fees

If you have outstanding school fees, you may do the following:

  • Pay online through MyCBE/PowerSchool​.
  • Pay at your child’s​ school using debit/credit card
    Due to COVID, in person payments (cash, cheque, debit/credit) are discouraged to prevent virus spreads. CBE appreciate your cooperation and support.​ If you need to make a payment at your school, please call ahead to make arrangements.

You can also sign up for services like transportation or noon supervision, pay fees and view or print receipts and statements for all of your children in one, central location. The system is mobile-friendly and works with your smartphone or tablet. Find technical help here.

School fees for 2020-21 are due when assigned. For school fee inquiries, please contact your child’s school directly.​ 

Find My School Fees

Pay using 

No child is ever denied access to an education in the CBE because of an inability to pay. The CBE has a waiver process for families who can’t afford to pay the fees.  Visit our Waivers page for more information and the documents required as proof of income or extraordinary circumstance.

Any family needing a waiver is encouraged to apply to the City of Calgary Fair Entry Program to prove income for a CBE waiver, as well as access other benefits of the program. This is optional for families and the CBE will continue to accept other approved documents as proof of income.

Note | Waiver applications are available through your MyCBE/PowerSchool​ account.

2020-21 Students Assigned to Calgary Transit

For students using Calgary Transit, families will need to purchase monthly bus passes available at many convenience and grocery stores.

All families can apply for the City of Calgary's Fair Entry Program for the low income Calgary Transit pass. This program offers a streamlined application process for City subsidy programs, including reduced rates for transit passes. You can find more information about the program at

Please note, international fee-paying students are not eligible for free yellow school bus service or a rebate on monthly transit passes, regardless of their program or distance from school.​​
