In the recent weeks and late in 2013 a number of announcements have been made by the Province of Alberta regarding the development of new schools and modernization or update or others.

The full list updated by the Province with future announcements can be found here: New School Capital Projects

I have just copied the announcements as of today’s date. The volume of listings illustrates the major need for new school space. I spoke with another family just this weekend that is potentially delaying plans to move due to lack of school space in their preferred neighbourhood.

As the capacity issues are just coming to light in some areas this is a shock to many folks. School lotteries in capacity schools were held mid February.

These are the announcements for Calgary so far. I didn’t include the Modular Classroom Allocations or Modernizations as there are too many.
