Clearview recognizes the work done by communities and families to ensure that viable community facilities and outdoor spaces are available, both for the community at large and for the students in our division. Such spaces are an integral part of both rural areas and the learning success of students.

"The community initiative support program is an exciting opportunity to partner with our communities to enhance our outdoor education and recreational spaces,” says Guy Neitz, Clearview Board Chair. “Together we can maximize resources to develop and build significant projects that will benefit Clearview students and families."

Financial support for proposals will be provided by Clearview Public Schools on a partnership basis with each single project qualifying for no more than $25,000. Each proposal must be in partnership with schools and said principal(s) must be in support of the application. The deadline for applying is March 31, 2023 with project completion slated on or before August 21, 2024.

Interested societies, community groups or schools can submit their request by e-mail to Applications must include a budget, estimation of volunteer hours needed, amount of funds requested, merits of the proposal, available letters of reference, expected timeline and contact information.

Proposals with the largest benefit to Clearview students and possessing the greatest likelihood to succeed, as determined by the Board, will be given preference.
