Sask needs more schools

2013-10-16 13:47:19

Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall says the government's focus this fall will be on getting more schools, more quickly.

Wall says growing enrolment means there's a demand for schools across the province, especially in major centres.

For example, the Regina Catholic School Division said in August that some schools in the city are at 150 per cent capacity.

The premier says, given the number of schools needed, the province could look at bundling schools like Alberta has done.

That means building schools in bulk, all with similar designs, and could include a public private partnership.

Wall says there will be more details next week in the throne speech to open the fall sitting of the legislature.
