CBE High School Engagement E-Newsletter | February 2021
High school scenarios now available
The CBE is launching its next phase of high school engagement.
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. These scenarios are now available on the CBE website.
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.
- Provide a more equitable learning experience for all high school students.
- Maintain a regular program at every high school.
- Allow for alternative programs and academic enrichment when possible.
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.
Share your feedback
You can share your feedback on the scenarios in these ways:
You can choose to participate in any or all of the opportunities. If you have time to participate in only one activity, please complete the online survey as that provides us with detailed data that will inform the proposed plan.
If you plan to attend a virtual session, you can submit questions in advance of the session. You can find links to submit questions and more information about these engagement opportunities on our High School Engagement webpage.
Get involved! This is your opportunity to share your voice.
Your feedback helped us develop the scenarios. Now we're asking for your feedback to help us decide how the scenarios will shape the proposed plan. We hope you will participate.
Check this out! Enjoy this short video available in twelve languages that explains how important your opinions are, and how much we value your participation. Spread the word!
Thank you for staying involved. Your participation is important and valued.
Together, we make better decisions for all our students.
