The Budget Report for the 2020-2021 Fiscal Year was approved by the Board of Trustees at their Regular Board Meeting on May 26, 2020.
Capital and Facilities Plan
All new school facilities are funded from the Province of Alberta with consultation between Alberta Education and the Department of Infrastructure. Each year, school jurisdictions submit facility needs for the next three years and await funding and approval from the province.
The Board approved a Three-Year Capital Plan on April 14, 2020. Over the last five years, Parkland School Division has been the recipient of three brand new Kindergarten to Grade 9 schools with Prescott Learning Centre opening in September 2016, Copperhaven School opening in September, 2018 as well as the replacement school for Stony Plain Central which is tentatively scheduled to open for the 2022-2023 school year.
Another previously identified need is being tended to with the current modernization and expansion of Woodhaven Middle School in Spruce Grove. Construction began in the spring of 2018. When all is said and done, Woodhaven’s capacity will increase from approximately 600 to 900 students.
