Update | Noon Supervision and Yellow School Bus Transportation Fees
As the province has directed schools to move to at-home learning during the times noted above, families will not be charged noon supervision or yellow school bus transportation fees when these services are not offered.
- Grade 7-9 students will not be charged yellow school bus transportation fees from Nov. 30, 2020 until Jan. 8, 2021.
- Kindergarten to Grade 6 students will not be charged noon supervision or transportation fees for the week of Jan. 4-8, 2021.
Families will receive credits to their MyCBE/PowerSchool accounts. If, at any point in the remainder of the school year there is movement to at-home learning that impacts the entire system or specific grades, additional credits will be provided. At the end of the school year, Student Fees will reconcile the accounts and offer refunds to families for any amounts above $10.
Families are reminded to pay all outstanding fees.
Frequently Asked Questions
When will I get my refund?
All refunds will be processed at the end of the school year. Refunds can take up to 12 weeks to process.
How much will I get back?
The amount you will get back will depend on the amount of fees that were paid and the number of credits you have on your account.
My child has been required to isolate, will I be refunded for the days they needed to stay home?
No. Refunds are only offered for days the CBE is not able to provide transportation or noon supervision services due to provincial direction to move to at-home learning.
Do I need to pay my full January Noon Supervision fees?
Yes, at this time January noon supervision fees will not be prorated because the refund would be less than $10. Credits are only be applied to parent accounts for amounts greater than $10. Should there be any further system movement to at-home learning at any point during the remainder of the school year, credits will be applied at that time.

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.
