Capital Plan and Projects

Each year, boards of education are required to submit a five-year capital plan providing details on high priority projects needed for their school districts.

A board of education's five-year capital plan should reflect a strategy for balancing the supply of existing facilities against both current and projected enrolment demands.

This plan should also reflect the replacement or rejuvenation of existing facilities, including seismic upgrades and building envelope remediation.


Public Board Meeting of June 20, 2017

In mid-April 2017, direction was received from the Ministry of Education requiring school districts to submit their Capital Plans by June 30th of the current year. The NVSD has a Capital Planning Committee to review Draft Capital Plans and Long Range Facilities Plans. The Committee met in February of 2017 to review the updated 2017 Long Range Facilities Plan, which was used to identify priorities for the Draft 2018/19 Five-Year Capital Plan.

The Ministry Capital Plan timeline has changed from prior years, and continues to consolidate various capital funding programs into a single call for projects as part of the Capital Intake Process. The priorities identified in the Capital Plan instructions include:

  • Seismic Mitigation Program (SMP)
  • School Expansion Projects (EXP)
  • School Replacement Projects (REP)
  • Building Envelope Program (BEP)
  • School Enhancement Program (SEP)
  • Carbon Neutral Capital Program (CNCP)
  • School Bus Replacement Program (BUS)
