Each year, the Board of Education is required to submit to the Ministry of Education a five-year capital plan that includes details on school building projects that the Board wishes to undertake. The Five-Year Capital Plan Summary 2015/16 outlines high-priority capital projects within the School District.
The process includes the development and maintenance of a comprehensive Facilities Plan and a Project Identification Report (PIR) for each project that is identified as a priority and included in the Five-Year Capital Plan.
Based on an analysis of each school district's capital plan submission, the Ministry of Education establishes an overall capital budget for schools. Resources are allocated to the highest-priority projects, and school boards are advised which projects may proceed.
