SUBJECT:

Capital Plan 2016-2019

The Calgary Catholic School District 2016-2019 Capital Plan submission (list and map attached)
comes at a time when the district continues to experience significant annual enrolment
pressures driven by continued net in-migration to Alberta and the Calgary region, even during
uncertain economic times. Although this capital plan submission comes following the recent
announcements of funding for a number of Calgary Catholic School District (CCSD) priorities
from previous years, given the growth environment that is projected to continue, further
approvals, as outlined in this summary are required.
Following submission of the previous capital plan, CCSD has received full funding approval of
the two highest priority projects from that year; Skyview Ranch Elementary/ Junior High School
and Silverado Elementary/ Junior High School. The district has also received planning funding
for three other high priority projects (Sherwood Elementary/ Junior High School, St. Francis
Modernization, and Mahogany Elementary School). Full funding for these three projects is still
being pursued as part of the Alberta Governments Phase three approvals and as such, they
continue to be identified in the attached 2016-2019 Capital Plan. The balance of the three year
2016-2019 CCSD capital plan includes prioritized requests for seven new neighbourhood
elementary or elementary/ junior high schools, a new junior/senior high school in Airdrie, two
high schools in Calgary, and major modernization requests for twelve additional schools. These
priorities include projects that appeared on previous capital plans which continue to be
required as well as new emergent priorities.

Starting last school year (2013/14) and continuing into this year, the district has surpassed the
provincial benchmark of 85 percent utilization, equating to full capacity. With increased
enrolments yet again as well as an update to the provincial utilization formula calculations,
CCSD now stands at an overall district utilization rate of 93 percent for the 2014/2015 school
year. Even given the construction of the additional spaces recently announced, it is projected
that this utilization rate will continue to increase after 2016 and beyond. The district is also
facing a time period during which critical modernizations are required to many of the older
facilities as a portion of this overall district growth is directed towards these established
schools.
As per recent confirmation from the Alberta government, the attached capital plan will be
submitted by the deadline of April 1st, 2015. Alberta Education indicates that the capital plan
should continue to follow the previous format where all projects, regardless of category ( ie;
new schools or modernization), must be prioritized in a single list from highest to
lowest priority. As such, the CCSD 2016-2019 Capital Plan attached is formatted in this manner.
Recommendation:
THAT the Board of Trustees accept this report as information.
