On Friday, Nov. 1 the Government of Alberta announced construction dollars to build two previously-announced schools and a new elementary school for the Calgary Board of Education. Funding of the design of an Auburn Bay middle school (Grade 5-9) and the North Calgary High School (Grades 10-12) was provided last spring and this new funding will allow construction to proceed. A second elementary school will also be built in the community of Auburn Bay.
“On behalf of our students, we thank the Government of Alberta for today’s announcement. Our families in north Calgary will be thrilled to see this high school come to fruition,” said CBE Board Chair Marilyn Dennis.
“The growing community of Auburn Bay will see students attending school closer to home with the construction of the middle school and a second elementary school.”
The CBE is scheduled to open three new elementary schools in the 2020-21 school year in the communities of Coventry Hills, Cranston (Sibylla Kiddle School) and Evergreen (Dr. Freda Miller School). As well, a new elementary school in the community of Mahogany and a K-9 school in Skyview Ranch are planned.
At the March 19, 2019 public board meeting, the Calgary Board of Education Board of Trustees approved the Three-Year School Capital Plan 2020-2023 requesting eight new schools and 10 major modernizations from the provincial government.
