The 2018-19 provincial budget was released on March 22, 2018. In response, the CBE Board of Trustees issued this statement.
The Province has again funded us for enrolment growth, ensuring the 2,000 new students we expect to welcome next year will be funded.
The CBE is currently working on its 2018-19 budget. We’d like your input! Decisions made in the coming months help shape the 2018-19 school year for our staff and students.
We look forward to hearing from our parents, staff, and community members about what your priorities are for the CBE. Information collected will be used to inform future budgets.
To hear more about our planning for the 2018-19 budget year, please see our video: 2018-19 Budget Planning Process with CFO Brad Grundy.
Our budget priorities are shaped by our shared values:
- students come first
- learning is our central purpose
- public education serves the common good
