Flexible and Alternative Approaches to Providing School Infrastructure in Alberta, Canada
Matichuk, Allison
CELE Exchange, Article 2 Mar 2010
Like many other jurisdictions, the western Canadian province of Alberta is seeking cost-effective and creative ways of providing school infrastructure that meets the needs of 21st century learning. Solutions are being found through the use of alternative financing and procurement arrangements and through innovative approaches to creating flexible school facilities. Alberta is using public-private partnerships as one way to quickly and cost-effectively build schools in areas of the province that are experiencing enrolment pressures. Through the use of core school designs, modular classrooms, Career and Technology Studies units and technology-ready school buildings, the province is ensuring that its schools are flexible enough to adapt to changing demographics and to the evolving needs of learners in Alberta.
