Building & Modernizing Schools

School Projects

​With the tremendous increase in Calgary's population in the last five years and many families deciding to live in new suburban communities, our need for new schools has never been greater. We also need to modernize many of our existing schools, many of which are more than 40 years old, to meet the learning needs of 21st century learners.

Visit the pages below to learn more about our current capital projects.


 New School and Modular Classroom Open Houses


​The Calgary Board of Education will be holding three Open Houses in June 2015 to give stakeholders the opportunity to learn more about the new schools opening in their communities. 

Please drop-in to learn more about enrolment, grade configurations and designations/walk zones for the schools, as well as to view site designs.

There will be no formal presentation at these events, so please feel free to drop-in anytime between 6 and 8 p.m.

CBE Area Directors, and staff from the planning & transportation and communications departments will be available to answer your questions.

 School Modernizations


​​Aboriginal Learning Centre

High schools collaborate to personalize student programs

Our modernization plans are based on a fiscally responsible allocation of resources to provide enhanced facilities and increased learning opportunities across the CBE.

Our high schools work together, providing students access to specialized facilities. Students will be able to take advantage of learning opportunities including Career and Technology (CTS) or Knowledge and Employability (K&E) occupational courses or other courses that their designated high school is not able to offer.

All students will continue to have a “home” school that offers all core curriculum courses and provides many co-curricular and extra-curricular activities.

The modernizations at Bowness, Jack James, James Fowler, and Lord Beaverbrook High Schools will increase the flexible program options that high school students can access. Providing a variety of CTS and K&E occupational courses at high schools across Calgary gives our students enhanced opportunities to complete a program that is of interest to them and may be part of their intended career path.

 Other Capital Projects


The first step in building or modernizing a school is receiving funding for the work. Funding for CBE school construction and modernization projects is solely granted by the Alberta Government. Annually, we provide Alberta Education with a list of our building and modernization priorities, along with every other school district in the province. This list of priorities is part of our Three-Year School Capital Plan, which is approved by the Board of Trustees.

The Three-Year School Capital Plan contains information on your community, including whether your community is listed, its ranking, how the rankings are determined and the breakdown of each project’s ranking.

See Criteria for School Capital Planning Priorities for details on how we rank projects.

Modular Classrooms

To help address increasing enrolment growth pressures in our schools, the CBE will receive 19 modular classroom units to be installed at 10 schools for September 2015.

Working with our Community

During the process of building or modernizing a school, we seek feedback from CBE families, future CBE families, school staff and neighbours in the community. Public engagement opportunities will take place throughout each project. Updates will be posted on each school project page.
