PROVINCIAL FUNDING FOR SCHOOL IMPROVEMENT PROJECT IN WATSON

On behalf of Education Minister Clay Serby, Agriculture and Food

Minister Eric Upshall today announced provincial support of

approximately $70,000 to upgrade Watson High School. The project is

one of 34 school renovation or upgrading projects announced today

throughout Saskatchewan. These projects will receive provincial

funding totaling $5.7 million.



"Saskatchewan Education is committing $24 million to over 100 school

upgrading, renovation or construction projects this year," Upshall

said. "This continues the level of funding for school capital

projects from last year. The investment we are making in our schools,

and in the education of Saskatchewan children, is a good investment in

the province's future."



The Humboldt Rural School Division will receive approximately $70,000

in provincial funding to replace a section of the roof at Watson High

School. The total estimated cost of the project is $100,000.



"School upgrading projects like this demonstrate the government's

commitment to working with school divisions to provide students with

comfortable and well-equipped learning facilities," Upshall said.



Today's announcement is the first phase of upgrading and renovation

projects approved by Saskatchewan Education in the 1999-2000 fiscal

year, and is in addition to major construction projects already

announced for Pinehouse, Estevan, Kennedy, Regina and Meadow Lake.
