Deputy Premier and Education Minister Don Morgan toured a joint-use school in Harbour Landing on Monday.
The government says the construction of six new elementary schools on three joint-use sites in Harbour Landing, Greens on Gardiner and Rosewood Park are on time and on budget.
“Our government is delighted to see how quickly this project has evolved since we started construction a year ago,” Morgan said in a news release Sept. 12.
“The construction team, along with the school division and city partners have worked hard to ensure that these schools will be built on time and be ready for students by September 2017.”
Twelve new schools are also being built on six joint-use sites in Saskatoon, Martensville and Warman.
The government says the schools will accommodate more than 11,000 students from pre-kindergarten to grade eight.
This includes more than 3,300 students in Regina, 5,700 students in Saskatoon and 2,100 students in Martensville and Warman.
Each school will also contain a 90 space child care centre and a community space.
Joint-use schools are co-owned by the public and Catholic school divisions.
Construction began in September 2015 and is expected to be completed in 2017.
