J.W. Sexsmith Elementary (Repurposing the Existing Sexsmith Building)
The seismic upgrade of Sexsmith Elementary School consists of the construction on the existing site of a new replacement school with a student capacity of 40 full-day kindergarten spaces and 350 grade 1 - 7 student spaces. The replacement school will be built at the west end of the existing playfield. Additional areas are provided for Neighbourhood of Learning and Early Childhood Education initiatives.
After the proposed replacement school building is occupied, the existing 1912 and 1913 school buildings will become surplus to Board of Education needs and staff will develop and undertake a public process to seek proposals for repurposing the existing buildings into another use.
