Replacement School Project
The new Stony Plain Central School is highly-anticipated and an integral part of Parkland School Division's Strategic Facilities plan. The addition of this future learning site marks the third brand-new school to join the division since 2016 and represents extensive collaboration between PSD and the Town of Stony Plain.
The new school will be able to accommodate 900 students (no modular buildings will be used).
Status of Project // Status of Construction
Summer 2020: The design phase of the project reached 90% completion over the summer. This progress allows the division to start the tendering process for the new building in the fall.
September 2020: Parkland School Division, in partnership with the Town of Stony Plain, announced details of a Land Swap Agreement that paved the way for construction to begin on the replacement school. The Town had recently completed the paving and servicing of the 57 Avenue extension that will serve as one of the main access points to the future learning site.
December 2020: Planning and preparation continued on the division’s third brand new school in the past five years. Since this is a new build, the division does not anticipate any disruption to activities at the existing school’s site.
February 2021: PSD is exciting to team up again with Marshall-Lee Construction Corp. on the project. They are the same contractor that completed the current Memorial Composite High School back in 2010.
Spring 2021: Construction on the new Stony Plain Central site is set to begin in spring 2021.

“Families at Stony Plain Central have been patiently and excitedly waiting for construction to begin for their replacement school that was announced in March of 2018. This recent transaction is fantastic news and indicates the start of visible and tangible progress to this exciting build that will serve Stony Plain students for years to come. The administration teams for both the school division and the Town have worked successfully to create this win-win scenario. Having Stony Plain Central School as a hub in this future development is truly exciting for all involved.” - Lorraine Stewart, Parkland School Division Board Chair
