Province Announces Funding for New Middle School in Evanston

Mar. 04, 2022

​​​​On Friday, March 4, the Government of Alberta announced funding for the design and construction of a new middle school ​(G​rades 5-9) in the community of Evanston.

“On behalf of the students and community of Evanston, we thank the Government of Alberta for today’s announcement. A new middle school in Evanston was the top priority on last year’s Three-Year School Capital Plan. This school will allow students to attend school closer to home and as a growing school system, we welcome these additional learning spaces,” said CBE Board Vice-Chair Susan Vukadinovic.

The CBE currently has five new school construction projects under development that will open to students in the next few years:

  • Mahogany Elementary School (K-4)– scheduled to open this fall
  • Skyview Ranch elementary/middle school (K-9) – scheduled to open this fall
  • Auburn Bay middle school (5-9) – scheduled to open this fall
  • North Calgary high school (10-12) – scheduled to open fall 2024
  • A second Auburn Bay elementary school (K-4) – scheduled to open this fall

At the March 8, 2022 public board meeting, the CBE Board of Trustees will receive the Three-Year School Capital Plan 2023-2026 which outlines the prioritized new schools and major modernization requests. Annually, school jurisdictions are required to approve and submit their priorities to Alberta Education by April 1. 

“Following this most recent announcement, the Board will now turn its attention to reviewing and approving an updated capital plan later this month to identify our new and ongoing priorities for new schools and major modernizations.” said Vukadinovic.
