June 8, 2017 (Brockville, ON) Trustees with the Upper Canada District School Board passed the 2017-2018 budget on Wednesday night.

The budget includes $357 million in operating expenses and $32 million in planned capital expenses, said Superintendent of Business Nancy Barkley.

In the second draft of the proposed budget, the operating surplus for compliance purposes increased by $710,366 and the resulting $809,753 surplus provides a “risk contingency” that will allow the Board to address unknowns and to respond to emerging needs throughout 2017-2018.    

“I am proud of the work of Trustees during this year’s challenging process,” said Chair Jeff McMillan of budget deliberations. “What has resulted is a budget that responsibly addresses today’s fiscal climate. It allows us to address our key goals of student achievement and well-being while providing flexibility to address any future needs that may arise.”

The Board also addressed the following item during last night’s meeting:

·         Director’s Award of Merit: Director Stephen Sliwa reported on the winners of the first annual Director’s Award of Merit.

The award recognizes employees who bring the best of themselves to the workplace on a regular basis throughout the year, contributing to a positive, productive and caring workplace.
