Alberta’s more than 1,500 school buildings provide the learning environment for nearly 600,000 ECS-12 students. It is here that students, with the support of our excellent teachers and school staffs, are developing into the leaders of tomorrow, and bringing to life government’s vision for Inspiring Education.
In addition to more than $500 million to start Premier Alison Redford’s 50 new schools and 70 modernization projects under Budget 2013, government is investing nearly $1.4 billion in capital support for schools facilities over the next three years.
As we build, maintain and modernize our schools, Alberta Education is also continuing to develop more effective and innovative approaches to planning, managing and investing in school infrastructure, in order to ensure that our facilities meet the needs of Alberta’s growing student population and changing educational landscape.
