Budget Boost From Operating Grant

From SD 34. With holdback funds released by the province, the district’s budget has grown by $1.4 million.

The recalculated operating grants based on the Fall 2014-15
enrolment count were released December 19.

Although slightly lower than expected enrolments resulted in a
grant decrease, the holdback allocation of $1.4 million
results in a net increase of $758,826.

The Board also received the budget planning calendar which includes two
public information meetings: March 5th and April 7th.

Final approval of the preliminary 2015-16 Budget is set for
May 5.
