Clearview Meadows Elementary School in Stayner is one of 38 new capital projects across Ontario.
This includes 10 new schools and 28 renovations and additions.
$255 million has been set aside for funding new schools and renovations from the provincial government.
Clearview Meadows will become a school serving students in junior kindergarten through Grade 6 and will add students from Byng Public School which is set to close by 2020. Under that plan, Stayner Collegiate would then become a school for students in Grades 7 through 12.
The next step is for the school board planning staff to work through design and construction processes with the municipality.
A timeline for completion of the project has not yet been determined.
