BRSD Board Approves 2025-28 Capital Plan

Battle River School Division (BRSD) Board of Trustees has approved the division’s capital plan, which will be submitted to Alberta Education prior to April 1, 2024, for consideration by the Government of Alberta. This approval aligns with BRSD policy and Alberta Education’s requirement for each school board to submit a three-year capital plan annually. 

BRSD’s 2025-28 capital plan report highlights requests for a replacement school, modernizations and renovations to two existing schools, and a future new school. The capital plan report is available on the BRSD website.

Each year, BRSD assesses capital needs throughout its buildings and prioritizes projects based on drivers outlined in the School Capital Manual. Some of the drivers that are helpful in prioritizing capital project requests are building conditions, enrolment, programming, and health and safety.

BRSD has prioritized four project requests for its 2025-28 plan. These priorities include two construction projects. One of the projects is a replacement building for CW Sears School in Tofield. The other is a new middle school in Camrose, which will help balance enrolment and ease congestion at the current Camrose middle school, École Charlie Killam School (ÉCKS).

The plan also includes a priority request for modernization and partial replacement at ÉCKS. Hay Lakes School is another school in the rural area that has been included in the request for priority modernization.

Modernization strategies can be used to enhance entire buildings or part of a building to address aging building infrastructure and also to accommodate educational space and programming. Upgrades may be applied to sections of the original building construction and additions that would have occurred after the initial build.

BRSD aims to enhance the learning environments for our students and provide an optimal learning environment, aligning with BRSD’s vision: Every Student, Every Day, a Success.
