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.
