The operating budget year starts on July 1 and ends on the following June 30. The Board of Education approves two budgets each year. The Annual Budget is approved prior to June 30 for the following fiscal year and is based on projections for enrollment, staffing, funding and other budgets. The Amended Annual Budget is approved by February 28 for the current fiscal year and is based on actual enrollment, staffing, funding and costs.

The Board continues to welcome your suggestions on ways that the school district can operate more efficiently. The Board of Education invites input on the Amended Budget until November 30.

Your recommendations and input to assist the Board of Education in the budget process can be emailed to jmartin@sd85.bc.ca or if you prefer, you can fax (250) 949-8792 to the attention of John Martin.
