PROVINCIAL FUNDING FOR SCHOOL IMPROVEMENT PROJECTS IN WEYBURN AND RADVILLE

On behalf of Education Minister Clay Serby, Highways and Transporation

Minister Judy Bradley today announced provincial support of

approximately $255,000 to upgrade two schools in Weyburn and one in

Radville. 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 Weyburn Public School Division will receive approximately $155,000

in provincial funding to continue the phased roof replacement at

Weyburn Comprehensive High School which began in 1997. This phase

will replace the low roof around the gymnasium and is expected to cost

$240,000.



The Weyburn Roman Catholic Separate School Division is receiving

approximately $90,000 to replace hot water heating pipes and the

boiler at St. Dominic Savio Elementary School. The total

estimated cost of this project is $135,000.



The St. Olivier Roman Catholic Separate School Division will

receive an approximately $10,000 provincial contribution for an

estimated $13,000 renovation to an existing washroom. This

project will increase accessibility for students with

disabilities.



"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," Bradley

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.
