The Central Okanagan School District will receive a fair chunk of change from the provincial Ministry of Education for equipment upgrades and new school buses.
Each year the ministry receives an annual five-year capital plan submission from public school districts requesting approval and funding for a variety of minor capital projects.
The ministry goes over the requests, comparing them to the eligibility criteria of the capital programs offered and the available program budgets, and provides approvals accordingly.
SD 23 will receive more than $2 million for HVAC upgrades at Glenrosa Elementary, electrical upgrades at HS Grend Junion Middle School and two new buses.
