Today the provincial government announced funding for four new 'starter schools' to be built in Calgary. The $30.6 million commitment would allow four Calgary communities to be home to starter schools, which could be constructed quickly to address the need.

 

Currently, Calgary schools have a growth of 5,000 students per year for the next seven years. Right now, there are 110,000 students in the CBE, and 50,000 students in the CCSD. 

 

The communities of West Springs, Saddle Ridge, Cranston and Aspen Woods will be getting the new starter schools. The new schools are reported to be built in phases. 

 

“Starter schools allow us to open classrooms more quickly, while continuing to add space for future enrolment.” — Gordon Dirks, Minister of Education

Information on what this means for these four communities and for students, see this Calgary Herald article. For insight on what this means for resale value in those areas, feel free to contact me anytime.
