PROVINCIAL FUNDING FOR SCHOOL IMPROVEMENT PROJECTS IN REGINA

Education Minister Clay Serby today announced provincial support of

approximately $385,000 to upgrade two schools in Regina. The projects

are among 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," Bradley

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 Regina Roman Catholic Separate School Division will receive

approximately $385,000 in provincial funding to upgrade mechanical

ventilation and electrical systems at St. Andrew School and arts

education areas at Archbishop M.C. O'Neill High School. The total

estimated cost of these projects is slightly over $1 million.



"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," Serby 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.
