Approved School Fees
In 2017, Bill 1 – An Act to Reduce School Fees – was proclaimed by the government. The government expressed their intention to make life better and more affordable for Alberta families.
Under this legislation, fees for specific instructional supplies and materials are no longer eligible for collection. Parents in Alberta are no longer charged fees for textbooks, workbooks, photocopying or printing, and paper.
At Christ the Redeemer Catholic Schools, in excess of $631,000 has been eliminated.
The regulation does allow for other fees which must meet certain criteria, including being clearly expressed in the board’s fee schedule, as well as being connected to a specific good or service. Christ the Redeemer Catholic School Division’s Fee Schedule for 2018-2019 was officially approved by the government in July 2018.
The remaining approved school fees are listed below, and include enhanced course fees, non-curricular fees, and transportation fees that are not supported by government funding.
Please note that the eligible fees listed below as proposed may be overstated. In all cases, the schools make efforts to further reduce the costs for field trips, non-curricular events, and extra-curricular activities. Parents who struggle to pay the approved fee have the opportunity to speak to the Principal regarding a waiver of fees.
