Strategic Plan – Year One & Beyond – 5.01
CCSD59 is committed to ensuring all students have equitable access to both resources and opportunities to equip them to be successful for life. This commitment is a central part of the district’s core values and strategic plan, and CCSD59 is currently on a journey to identify and address areas within the district where we can grow toward achieving this vision.
The board of education and the superintendent leadership team reviewed the analysis of the district’s areas of focus, and identified key impacting factors that require further review to achieve the district’s mission and vision for equity.

Agenda Item 6.0
Approval of Portable Classrooms for Brentwood and Frost Elementary Schools – 6.01
The district recently evaluated classroom availability and needs across school buildings. The need for additional space was identified at Brentwood and Frost Elementary Schools, and since this classroom space is not currently available, the temporary solution of portable classrooms was previously discussed at the board meeting on May 9, 2022. The portable classrooms would be utilized at the two locations for one year during the 2022-23 school year.
Each portable unit contains two classrooms and one washroom so that students do not need to travel between these exterior classrooms and the building. Each portable unit is approximately $220,000 and would be a rent-to-own contract with a buyout of $1 at the end of the lease.
With the required utilities, the total cost is approximately $659,300 for both units at the two schools for one school year.
After additional discussion, the board voted and approved the purchase of two portable classrooms as outlined above.
