(Brockville) – Trustees with the Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) met on Wednesday, January 11 to discuss a number of topics including:

Financial Forecast for 2016-2017 Budget: Superintendent of Business Nancy Barkley presented her first financial forecast to the board for the current fiscal year. It reflects an anticipated in-year surplus of $499,000. Barkley said that higher than anticipated 2016-2017 projected enrolment of an additional 156 students in our district, combined with the board’s original budgeted surplus, enabled it to fund additional educational assistant staffing to support students with special needs.

Superintendent Barkley confirmed that the budget remains Ministry compliant while allowing the board to focus on its key goals of student achievement and student well-being.

Board Renews Memberships: Trustees renewed Board memberships in the Ontario Public School Boards’ Association (OPSBA) and the Ontario Student Trustees’ Association (OSTA). Both associations are important vehicles through which UCDSB trustees can provide local input and advice to the Ministry of Education.
