Joint-use schools consist of a public and Catholic school located in the same building, owned, and operated by the partner school divisions, with shared spaces like community resource centres and child care spaces.
Benefits of joint-use schools:
- Provides extra benefits to the students in schools where specific programming may not have otherwise been offered
- Strengthens partnerships between school divisions
The P3 schools are also being designed with the community in mind, providing after school access to:
- The community resource centre
- Multi-purpose rooms
As well, each joint-use school will have a 90 space early learning centre - an additional 810 spaces across the province.
