The modernization of Nobleford School was announced in January 2014.
In May 2014, stakeholders including Palliser Regional Schools' Board of Trustees, administration, Facility Services department and school leaders and representatives of Nobleford School Council, Village of Nobleford, Alberta Infrastructure and Alberta Education met with the architect to discuss goals for this modernization.
The meeting confirmed four main goals:
1. Providing a modernized learning environment for students in the community;
2. Addressing the buildings “barrier free” challenges and making it accessible to all students, staff and community members;
3. Ensuring the safest environment for students and staff;
4. Planning for future requirements for the both the school and the community.

Community Use of School Facilities
In many communities in Palliser Regional Schools, the school represents a community resource that individuals may wish to use for social, recreational or other activities.
Palliser's Administrative Procedure 544 on the Community Use of School Facilities outlines the division's guideliness and requirements for community use of Palliser-owned facilities. Please review the procedure here. Please note, the procedure and process for community use does not apply to Palliser's schools in Calgary and Brant. Those alternative programs are housed in facilities owned by the societies at those respective schools. For use of those facilities, please contact the school directly.
