SD52 to receive Federal/Provincial funding for ventilation improvements at two city schools

The Federal and Provincial governments  will be investing close to 780,000 dollars into School infrastructure in Prince Rupert with funding for SD52 to be directed to a pair of ventilation improvement projects.

The funding which was announced on Thursday will see $414,560 put towards ventilation improvements for École Roosevelt Park Elementary School, while $362,740 has been put towards similar improvements to the ventilation system at Charles Hays Secondary School.

The Roosevelt School work will increase fresh air intake by installing unit ventilators to improve ventilation in classrooms and shared spaces. 

The project at Charles Hays Secondary will increase fresh air intake in classrooms by installing new air handling units to regulate and circulate air. 

The funding comes from three shared Federal/Provincial streams: COVID-19 Resilience stream, the Community, Culture and Recreation Infrastructure stream, and the Green Infrastructure stream of the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program (ICIP). 

The Prince Rupert schools were two of seven projects in the province to share in the funding from yesterday's announcement, which you can read here.
