$8.2-million in capital projects identified for Catholic School Board

Each year, the St. Clair Catholic District School Board identifies priority capital projects, to upgrade, renew and maintain school facilities.

The Ministry of Education provides annual funding allocations to support these expenditures.

School Condition Improvement (SCI) is a capital renewal program, which allows school boards to revitalize and renew aged building components that have exceeded, or will exceed, their life cycle.

The Ministry provides an additional School Renewal Allocation (SRA), which allows school boards to revitalize and renew aged building systems and components, including roof replacements, HVAC systems, building automation systems, air-conditioning systems and maintenance requirements, such as painting, roof patching and pavement/parking lot repairs.

The Board has budgeted $6,956,336 under SCI and SRA allocations for the following projects.

The Board of Trustees has approved these capital expenditures, as required due to the value of the projects, under Sec. B. Policy – Purchasing, school board officials say.
