All programs are now available for booking at the subsidized rates of:

Teachers who are current CBEEN members may access one complimentary program (with up to $250 in bussing cost reimbursement) for their classroom in the school year. Up to 200 complimentary programs are available for the 2021-2022 school year to teachers across the Basin on a first-come, first-serve basis.
We ask that teachers ensure that a program does not violate their school and/or district policies before booking. It is the responsibility of the teacher to confirm program suitability and communicate needs and questions to the Community Educator.
As with the previous school year, we have a COVID-19 policy in place for the 2021-2022 school year. Teachers booking programs are expected to read this plan in advance of their program to understand our policies and practices around offering programs this year.

About the Community Educator
Amy Cross is a Metis Cultural Coordinator and lives in Cranbrook, BC.
"Amy is fantastic and we're so fortunate to have her visit JVH again. What I most appreciate is the passion Amy brings to the classroom. It is clear to all that Metis education is something that is tremendously important to her. This is reflected in the attention students pay to her when they are with her." - Alastair McKay
