We believe that, wherever they live, students deserve a great education, great teachers and high-quality places to learn.
The Board of Trustees approves and submits our Three-Year Capital Plan to the provincial government each year to ask for funding for new schools and major modernizations. Edmonton Public Schools decides and prioritizes which projects go into the plan, and the government decides which ones get funded and when funding will be received.
Our Board of Trustees continues to ask the government for much-needed funding for new schools in growing areas of our city, as well as funding to modernize older schools to make sure all students are in high-quality learning environments.
In November 2019, the Government of Alberta announced funding for a new Grades 10–12 high school in southeast Edmonton. This school will be in the Meadows and will open in September 2024.
There are currently no approved modernization projects for Edmonton Public Schools.
