The Clearview Public School board of trustees has approved $100,000 in grants for several projects around the district.
Approved under the Community Initiative Support Program, the media release stating the approvals notes that there was “a high level of interest and uptake for this pilot program.”
Projects approved under the program must be completed by Aug. 31, 2024, and were the ones granting Clearview students “the largest benefit” and “greatest likelihood to succeed.”
“Outdoor recreational spaces are a great benefit to healthy lifestyles for our students and families,” said Guy Neitz, Clearview’s board chair.
“We are excited to partner with school councils, parent volunteers and local governments to improve recreational opportunities in our communities.”
Projects approved include $20,000 for an inclusive playground system at Coronation School, $17,500 for outdoor skating rink improvements at Erskine School, $17,500 for outdoor play-space improvements at Donalda School, and $10,000 for track and soccer field improvements at Castor’s Gus Wetter School.
