Burman University and the Alberta Conference of the Seventh-day Adventist Church Adopt Memorandum of Understanding.
AB, October 23, 2019: In May 2019, Burman University initiated a Memorandum of
Understanding (MOU) with the Alberta Conference of the Seventh-day Adventist
Church regarding Parkview Adventist Academy (PAA). The goal of the MOU is to
transfer governance and ownership of Parkview Adventist Academy from Burman
University to the Alberta Conference. On Oct. 4, 2019, the Burman University
Board of Trustees voted to approve the offer of the MOU to the Alberta
Conference. On Oct. 20, 2019, the Alberta Conference Board of Directors voted
to accept the offer.
MOU between the two organizations, which goes into effect Nov. 1, 2019,
outlines that the Alberta Conference
will commence ownership and operation of PAA in the fall of 2020. Burman
University will also provide land and an endowment that will facilitate the
building of a new high school. The Alberta Conference will assume full
responsibility for the planning and construction of the new facility. PAA will
remain at its existing location until the new building is complete. A date for
construction has yet to be determined.
University and the Alberta Conference have worked diligently to ensure the
long-term success of PAA. The Alberta Conference is happy to accommodate the
transition of PAA from a Burman/Seventh-day Adventist Church in Canada entity
to an Alberta Conference school.
