Alberta Education, Alberta Infrastructure, and provincial school boards work together to provide schools for Alberta’s students. The School Capital Manual is a guide that school boards use to plan projects that meet their communities’ changing needs.
Every year, each school board creates a list of building projects that are important to their communities for the next three years. This list is known as the board’s three-year capital plan. During planning, the boards may also identify partners that could help enhance projects for students and the greater community.
Each board sends its three-year capital plan to Alberta Education. Using information from the plans, Alberta Education works with Alberta Infrastructure to create the provincial capital plan. These are the highest-priority projects in Alberta. This helps government decide which projects will be approved when funding is available for school projects.
If a project is approved, the local school board, Alberta Education, and Alberta Infrastructure then work together on the details of the project to help ensure it meets students’ needs.
More information on building school projects can be found under the 'FAQ' section.
School administrators looking for forms will find them under the 'Documents' section of this card.
