The 2023 budget was announced and funding for an Edgemont K-9 school was approved!
Our School Advocacy Committee looks forward to further collaboration with EPSB and the province (Alberta Ed) as we move through the next steps in getting this school built!
As we continue our happy dance that Edgemont School K-9 was chosen as 1 of 13 sites across the province to receive funding for a full build, we want to make sure we thank a few important people who helped make this happen:
1. Our School Advocacy Committee, comprised of residents and Community League Directors, who volunteered their time and effort to get this dire community need recognized by the province, and who will continue their work throughout the design and build process.
2. EPSB School Board Trustees Dawn Hancock and Nathan Ip, who collaborated with us at every step and provided such valuable insight into the process of getting a school going. Edgemont wouldn’t have been in the running for funding if they didn’t work to move us up from #4 to #2 on the capital plan.
3. MLA Kaycee Madu, who met with us in the summer to ensure we would have the best chances of getting our school included in the next budget. He advocated for us as our elected representative and a member of Cabinet.
We will update social media and the website as we receive information.
