The Up­per Canada Dis­trict School Board’s over­all fi­nan­cial out­look re­mains sta­ble, Su­per­in­ten­dent of Busi­ness Robert Back­strom re­cently told trustees.

The fore­cast sur­plus of $508,380 re­flects a mod­er­ate re­duc­tion in the an­tic­i­pated in-year bud­get sur­plus when com­pared with the first fi­nan­cial fore­cast up­date pre­sented in Jan­uary. Es­ti­mated ad­just­ments to grants for stu­dent needs fund­ing and the cre­ation of ten new ed­u­ca­tional as­sis­tant po­si­tions contribute­d to the sur­plus change.


Trustees ap­proved the 2018-19 school year calendar, which will now be sent to the Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion for fi­nal ap­proval.

Classes would be­gin Septem­ber 4 and the last day of school would be June 28, 2019. Ex­ams will run from Jan­uary 24-30 and June 21-27, 2019. Christ­mas Break has been pro­posed for De­cem­ber 24, 2018 to Jan­uary 4, 2019. The March Break has been pro­posed for March 11-15, 2019.
