The Government of Saskatchewan recently released the final designs for the joint-use schools expected to open in 2017 around the province in Saskatoon, Regina, Martensville, Warman.
Currently there are eight schools under construction in Saskatoon’s Hampton Village, Evergreen, Stonebridge, and Rosewood neighborhoods. Greater Saskatoon Catholic Schools and the Saskatoon Public school divisions will split ownership of each of the four sites for a total of eight schools.
On Monday, the public were invited to view the final designs for the first time since the announcement back in 2013.
Each joint-use school will contain a 90 space childcare centre as well as a community space. The plans for the schools in Saskatoon have the gym and other common areas located in the centre with classrooms flanking the ends of the building. This will also aid in the use of portables when growth occurs.
Construction is expected to be completed for all 9 joint-use schools and open to students by September 2017 and is expected to cost the provincial Government $635 million dollars including construction and the cost of maintenance over the next 30 years as well as the costs of rehabilitation to keep the schools in a like-new condition.
