The latest information on the rebuild of École St. Pius X is:
- The construction of the joint-use schools is expected to require phasing to work around the existing Argyle school, which will require staggered opening of the schools.
- The selection of the design team is expected to be announced in January 2020.
- School community consultations are expected to begin in February 2020.
- As part of the process to approve park space across from the current Argyle School building for parking, an information gathering process was completed and the feedback has been provided to the City of Regina.
The St. Pius/Argyle rebuild announced in March 2019 is a joint-use facility, and planning for this project continues. At this point, no decisions have been made regarding building size or placement, nor has parking been decided.
The current step the team is working on is choosing an architect. Once that is complete, the design team will meet with the school communities. Those engagements are expected in winter 2020.
At this point, the project does not have approval to move further toward construction.
A joint webpage will be developed to hold updates on this project, and will be updated as frequently as new information comes available, but likely about monthly
We are looking forward to working with the school community on this project, but prior to any consultation and design process, a project manager and architectural firm will need to be hired through a process led by the Ministry of Education. This process will also determine all timelines.
As more information becomes available we will share it with the École St. Pius X community through this webpage and email.
