As part of Premier Alison Redford’s promise to invest in education infrastructure, nine new and replacement schools will be built in Calgary. These new schools will provide as many as 7,550 student spaces.

In central and southern Alberta, five new schools are being planned for Blackfalds, Cochrane, Davisburg, Lethbridge and Wheatland.

These schools are in addition to a major modernization project in Three Hills.

The new schools will provide as many as 3,050 student spaces across all grades.

Seven new and replacement schools will be built in Beaverlodge, Fort McMurray, Grande Prairie, Grimshaw, Joussard, Neerlandia, and Sexsmith in northern Alberta.

These schools will provide as many as 3,100 student spaces across all grades.

Seven new schools and one major modernization will be built in Edmonton, Leduc, St. Albert and Spruce Grove.

These new schools will provide as many as 4,950 student spaces across all grades.

The new schools will feature advanced systems and features such as large windows that provide natural lighting and ventilation systems that improve air quality and circulation.

The Alberta government is investing $503 million over three years to support the delivery of school projects within Alberta’s high-growth communities.

Meetings between government and local boards to discuss planning and design will soon be underway.

Schools will be built through a combination of public-private partnerships (P3s) and traditional methods.

New school projects in this first bundle are expected to be completed in 2016.
