Town of Coaldale Mayor Kim Craig responds to provincial funding announcement for new high school in Coaldale -
"As a Council, we are absolutely thrilled about today’s Provincial funding announcement for a new high school (grades 7-12) and grade reconfiguration package for the Town of Coaldale. This is a significant investment in the future of our town and our youth, and I could not be more proud that the Province has chosen to recognize Coaldale as a growing and vibrant community.
It is deeply satisfying to be able to deliver on the top strategic priority of this Council term – a much needed and anticipated joint High School / Multi-Use Recreation Center. My Council colleagues, along with our friends at Palliser School Division, have worked very hard for this day to come. At the start of this Council term, we made a point to invest in strategic partnerships that enhanced education in Coaldale; this major funding announcement validates the time and effort our organizations collectively invested in this joint venture.
I’d also like to make special mention of the hard work of our staff and senior management team whose unwavering dedication was key to this project's success.
We look forward to providing additional project details in the weeks to come.
On behalf of all of Coaldale, I'd like to close by sending out another big thank you to the Province of Alberta!"
Yours in service,
