The Government of Alberta is committed to building and maintaining high-quality, well-designed schools for Alberta’s children.
Budget 2018 includes $742 million in consolidated capital investment to support more than 200 school projects, including new builds and modernizations, across the province.

Under the playground program, Education will provide grant funding of up to $250,000 per school to support the construction of a playground for eligible projects (to be updated with schools announced as part of Budget 2018).
Should a school community wish to build a playground that costs more than the $250,000 provided, they will have the option of fundraising to supplement the project.
New schools that receive the Education playground grant will not be eligible for other provincial grants that support playground construction (including the Community Facility Enhancement Program grant).
If a community wants to upgrade or replace an existing playground, they can apply for the Community Facility Enhancement Program grant offered through Culture and Tourism.
