Welcome to the Calgary Board of Education SmartFind Express Website!



You can log into SFE with your Username and Password, your employee number and your PIN
or call 1-855-207-6130 for telephone-based access.

IMPORTANT NOTICE for all: To ensure a safe workplace, it is important for all staff to be aware of the safety hazards and who to contact when safety concerns arise. If you have not already completed the online Safety training, please complete this training when you report to your next substitute/casual location. Please let the principal or leader at the location be aware that you need to complete the online training and discuss when during your shift would be the most appropriate time to do so. Please refer to the e-mail sent to all staff on September 15, 2015 for more information on accessing the training. If you have any questions regarding the training please contact Safety Advisory Services by email at safetyadvisoryservices@cbe.ab.ca

SUBSTITUTE TEACHERS ARE WARNED AGAINST USING ANY OUTSIDE PHONE APPS SUCH AS SUB ASSIST OR JOB ALERT AS THEY ARE NOT SUPPORTED BY THE CBE AND CAN RESULT IN DISCIPLINARY ACTION.

If you are new to the Calgary Board of Education, you must call in and register before you can use the system for the first time.

Note the additional resources below:

1. CASUALS/ED. ASSISTANTS for URGENT same day support, dial 403-817-7883. TEACHERS and SUBSTITUTES dial 403-817-7881 for location and PIN issues.

2. CASUALS if you are having problems with SFE, email casualsfe@cbe.ab.ca. TEACHERS and SUBSTITUTES email subsdesk@cbe.ab.ca .

ATTENTION Teachers and Administrators of TRADITIONAL Schools: There has been a system problem with the Jan. 26th P.D. Day - if you have jobs on the system covering that day with a sub in - it WILL pay the substitute/casual - so if your sub is NOT required to work, please email subdesk@cbe.ab.ca with the job number and that the sub is NOT required to work, otherwise the subs in these jobs will all be paid. If your job has been entered No Sub Required, there will not be a problem. MODIFIED SCHOOLS please email the sub desk if the sub IS required to work as these days are in the system as PD Days for modified schools only. I apologize for this inconvenience.

The sub desk is experiencing a higher than typical demand for replacement teachers. Teachers who are sick and require coverage are encouraged to still put their absences on SFE.

All available substitute teachers are asked to contact the sub desk for placement. Teachers are asked to please enter parking comments into the comment section of their job.

Subs who started August-October and have not worked yet this year are being contacted this month to determine viability for remaining on the roster
