June CBE Board of Trustees’ Report

26

Election 2017

Every four years, citizens of Calgary elect trustees to govern the Calgary Board of Education. Trustees are elected during the municipal election at the same time that our mayor and city councillors are elected.

Trustees hold important roles. They provide leadership for the CBE by defining the vision, Results and Operational Expectations for the organization on behalf of its community.

Our next municipal election will take place on Oct. 16, 2017. If you are interested in learning more about becoming a public school board trustee, an information evening is being planned for June 13, 2017.

More information about the event will be posted on our website. For more information on the municipal election, please visit Calgary.ca .

Budget 2017-18

The CBE budget for the next school year will be finalized and approved by Trustees by the end of May.

Information about the budget is being shared on our budget information page as it becomes available. You can also share your feedback with us through the form online at www.cbe.ab.ca/budget

Graduation 2017

It’s the time of year when our high school graduation ceremonies are upon us once again. Graduation is a time of reflection and celebration. It is a time for our students to look back on their journey with us, and to think about what they have achieved.

Whether our graduates have joined us for just a short time, or right from kindergarten, we believe that the time they have spent with us has helped them grow as people and to develop a life-long love of learning.

Our graduates can be justifiably proud of their achievements. We would like to express our gratitude to their families, friends, teachers, principals, support staff and their fellow students for the significant role they played in helping each graduate reach his or her goals.

We can all celebrate the outstanding accomplishments of our graduates as they mark this important milestone in their lives. We are extremely proud of our students and extend our heartfelt congratulations and wish them success where ever the future may take them.
