Parents/guardians, students, staff and community members are invited to provide input on the 2018/2019 Budget.
The Halton District School Board has always been financially responsible with a clear focus on providing the system with resources and supports necessary to ensure that we inspire learning, create safe, healthy and engaging environments, and provide opportunities for challenge and choice.
Budget Development Process
The key objective of the Budget Development Process is to align the allocation of resources with the Operational Plan of the Board, the Multi-Year Plan
, and the Special Education Plan
; identify school based staffing requirements; identify budget challenges and opportunities; and gather input from the various stakeholder groups.
Multi-Year Plan 2016-2020 and Operational Plan
The Multi-Year Plan Mission, Vision, Values and Goals were approved by Trustees on June 15, 2016 (Board Report 16102). Following an assessment of system priorities and areas for growth, Administrative Council developed targets to measure the success of the goals in the Multi-Year Plan. These targets were incorporated into the 2017/2018 Operational Plan and will be updated/revised to continue into the 2018/2019 school year. The budget development process will align the allocation of resources in order to support these plans.
2017/2018 Summary of Expenditures, Revenues, and Enrolment
The Halton District School Board has experienced significant growth in enrolment in recent years. For 2018/2019, this growth is expected to continue, however it will be modest compared to prior years.
What suggestions do you have for aligning and/or realigning the HDSB financial resources to the Board’s priorities to continue promoting excellence in our programs to students?
The questionnaire is available until April 16, 2018.
