On behalf of Education Minister Clay Serby, Vi Stanger, Lloydminster

MLA, today announced provincial support of approximately $160,000 to

upgrade the school in Marshall. 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," Stanger

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 Battle River School Division will receive approximately $160,000

in provincial funding for two relocatable classrooms in the first

phase of an addition that will replace the original two story wing at

Marshall School. The total estimated cost of this phase of the

project is $300,000.



"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," Stanger 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,
