CALGARY (660 NEWS) — The Calgary Board of Education has kicked off its multi-year high school engagement with a survey for those involved in the CBE.

The goal around the engagement is to see how enrolment in the CBE can be balanced among the 20 high schools in Calgary.

It is believed that in the span of the next five years, half of the high schools in Calgary will operate at 100 to 150 per cent of their current capacity, while seven schools will operate at 50 and 85 per cent of their capacity.

The goal for the CBE is to have all high schools operate between 85 to 100 per cent.

Changes to high schools could see programs added or removed, changing the school that community is designated to, or change grades offered at individual schools.

The CBE intends to share its plans in the Fall of 2021.

Students who are in Grade 6 will be entering high school in 2022 when the changes are implemented, so the CBE is urging those with children still in K-9 to have their voices heard.

The survey will be open from May 15 – June 9
