The updated 2019-20 budget was approved by the Board of Trustees on Jan. 7, 2020.
The $1,380.5 million expenditure budget supports the operation of 246 schools and 125,809 students. This is a decrease of $28.5 million from the previously approved 2019-20 budget.
The original 2019-20 budget was approved by the Board and submitted to the Province in June, in advance of the provincial budget announcement. The spring budget presumed flat funding.
The Province announced the 2019-20 budget on Oct. 24, 2019. Overall funding was reduced by a minimum of $32 million, despite our enrolment increasing by nearly 2,400 students. Chief Financial Officer Brad Grundy described the impacts in this video and in a Dollars and Sense column.
As required by law, the 2019-20 budget is balanced and has been submitted to Alberta Education.
