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 mor​e than 40 years old, to meet the learning needs of 21st century learners.

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.

 New School Update

​Prairie Sky School Construction Delays​

Alberta Infrastructure has recently informed us of important construction delays that have impacted the handover date of the school to the Calgary Board of Education (CBE). This is unfortunate news and can be linked to material and equipment delays as well as workforce shortages.


As a result, we cannot confirm when the school’s construction will be finalised or the school’s opening date. We are closely monitoring construction progress and will provide another update to you before the winter break. [Read More​]


 Modernizations

School major modernization projects provide for the renovation of the whole or part of a school building for both present and future educational programs. Modernization projects provide enhanced facilities and increased learning opportunities across the CBE. School major modernization projects should not exceed 75% of the replacement value of the school building as per provincial guidelines. See our Three-Year School Capital Plan for more information.

There are no major modernization projects currently underway.​

 Modular Classrooms

​Each year the CBE submits a request for modular classroom units to Alberta Education.
