A Report on a New School Facilities Capital Plan by the School Facilities Task Force.
Alberta Dept. of Education, Edmonton.
This report reflects the recommendations of the School Facilities Task Force (appointed for Alberta in February 1997) regarding the development of a new school facilities capital plan. Guiding principles included the needs of students, local decision making, and long-range planning. Nine appendixes include a sample school capital funding scenario; the purpose, members, scope, and process of the Task Force; and principles for Alberta's education system. Also provides the following lists: community public meetings and its participants; stakeholder and school board presentations; written submissions from the public; materials distributed by the Task Force; and references. Includes a discussion paper, "Towards Development of a New School Facilities Capital Plan for Alberta's Students," which reviews and describes in greater detail six key issues raised earlier in the text, including the maintenance, renovation, and replacement of existing school facilities and the accommodation of enrollment growth. Each issue also raises questions for further consideration. Discussion paper provides a comment sheet for response to the Task Force, as well as three appendixes. These final appendixes supply background information, a chart illustrating Alberta's school building inventory by age group, and a table of student enrollments from 1986-2000. (CMD)
