With scroll enrolment numbers ballooning across Saskatchewan, the provincial government recently announced its intention to build nine new elementary schools each of which would bring a public and a separate elementary school together under one roof, sharing some parts of the facility. Four of those buildings will be constructed here in Saskatoon. Areas that will see new schools include Evergreen, Hampton Village, Rosewood and Stonebridge.
The schools will be constructed using a “public-private partnership model” (P3) where a private company, or companies, own the real estate and lease it to the respective school boards.
Today on our Facebook page, we asked the question, “Do you have any thoughts or concerns regarding the P3 model, or do you think it’s fine provided we end up with quality building that serve our students well at a fair cost?”
