School board will not close schools to balance budget
Despite ongoing financial pressures the School District 27 board will not be closing any schools to balance its 2014-15 budget.
The trustees made the decision during a closed meeting Tuesday, March 25, states a board press release issued today by Chair Tanya Guenther.
“With continued declining enrolment, the gradual loss of our funding protection from the Ministry of Education, and other increased costs, we are in a position where we are not done making difficult decisions," Guenther said.
"As we carefully examine all of our programs, the continuation of the balanced calendar program at Cataline Elementary is one of the programs the board is going to discuss.”
The board will be discussing the balanced calendar program at the April 29 meeting.
This is a new meeting date that has changed from the previously advertised date of April 22.
