The number of students attending Calgary Board of Education schools at the start of the 2013 school year has surpassed the record-setting estimates of the board.
The CBE had projected 110,376 students for the 2013-2014 (an increase of 3,272 students from the 2012-2013 year) and the board believes their lofty estimate has been surpassed. Official enrollment numbers will not be confirmed until September 30.
“We are very pleased to see that the preliminary counts indicate growth and therefore confidence in the CBE,” says Naomi Johnson, chief superintendent of schools. “The number of students coming to the CBE is large, but our focus remains on the success of each individual student.”
Staffing decisions will be made once the official numbers are released.
CBE enrollment numbers consist of regular kindergarten through grade 12 programs as well as the CBE Learn and Chinook Learning Services.
