School Enhancement Program (SEP) and Carbon Neutral Capital Program (CNCP)

The SEP is an annual program containing projects typically too large for inclusion in the FRUP and that contribute to the safety and function of the school and will extend the life of the asset.

Eligible SEP projects include electrical upgrades, energy upgrades, health & safety upgrades, mechanical upgrades, building enclosure upgrades, washroom and flooring upgrades between $100,000 and $3 Million in value.

In 2016/17, the District completed two SEP projects: the replacement of the high voltage transformer and related work at Hawthorne Elementary ($181,900) and the drinking water quality upgrades at multiple sites ($229,600).

In 2017/18, the District received approval for the upgrade of heating & ventilation systems at Cliff Drive Elementary ($463,300).

The CNCP is a $5 Million/year annual program that is available to provide specific funding to energy-efficiency projects that lower school districts’ carbon emissions.

In 2016/17, the District completed a gymnasium heating & ventilation upgrade at Seaquam Secondary ($486,000).  View the list of projects to be submitted as part of the 2018/19 Capital Plan here:
