Map of New Schools

CBE will build five schools that were to be constructed using public-private partnership

The CBE will be constructing five schools which the Province previously planned to build through a public-private partnership (P3) construction model. The schools are:

  • Evanston Elementary School
  • Saddle Ridge Middle School
  • Copperfield Elementary School
  • New Brighton Elementary School
  • Royal Oak/Rocky Ridge Middle School.

The CBE plans to open the schools in September 2016.

In June 2014, the Provincial Government indicated d that it would not be pursuing a P3 construction model to build the CBE schools.

The CBE has now appointed three prime consultants to assist with the design and construction of the five schools. This followed a consultant request for proposals (RFP) that was advertised provincially on the Alberta procurement website in July. The RFP resulted in 22 proposal submissions that were reviewed by provincial and CBE officials.

The prime consultants are

  • Gibbs Gage Architects—Royal Oak and Saddle Ridge middle schools
  • Sahuri + Partners –Evanston K-4 school
  • Group 2 Architecture Interior Design—Copperfield & New Brighton K-4 schools.
Introduction

We submit a Three-Year School Capital Plan annually to the Minister of Education that ranks our priorities for new schools and modernizations of existing schools.

The Provincial Government usually announces new school construction at their annual provincial budget launch.

Following the announcement, each school board that has been granted a new school receives a confirmation letter from Alberta Infrastructure describing the amount of funding allocated and the designated capacity of the school. For the Calgary Board of Education, this letter initiates the new school construction process.

Community Engagement

Our goal is to obtain public feedback on analysis, alternatives and/or decisions by consulting with you.

We will keep you informed, listen to and acknowledge concerns and aspirations and provide feedback on how public input influenced the decision.

Decisions will be made by CBE administration in conjunction with the area directors and the director of planning and transportation.

Public engagement will be ongoing throughout the projects. Reviews and updates will be posted as available.

We follow the International Association of Public Participation (IAP2) spectrum.

Parents please note: All dates are tentative and subject to change. The Calgary Board of Education will make every effort to provide updated information on school construction/ openings as it becomes available; however, many of the processes for the approval, design and construction of new schools are the responsibility of provincial and municipal government departments over which the Board has limited influence. We thank you for your patience and understanding in our ongoing efforts to provide CBE students with community based educational opportunities.
