What Parents and Students Need to Know
This is a friendly reminder that the 2023/2024 SD48 Annual Budget Input Survey is available for your input until January 18, 2023. Please see the below message from Secretary-Treasurer, Danielle Haverstock:
Dear SD48 Partner,
SD48 Board of Education follows a budget development process each school year in order to establish the final annual budget for submission to the Ministry of Education and Child Care. This process begins with providing an opportunity for partners to share input towards decision-making.
The District has a carefully developed and well-defined Education Plan (Pathways to Learning). The purpose of the survey opportunity is to seek advice on aligning the budget with the Education plan.
Once the survey closes, the next step in the budget development process is the Partner group meeting. The Partner Group meeting will help prioritize the input gathered through this survey.
Please click the link below to provide your input.
The survey will be open for input until January 18th, 2023. Thank you for your engagement in this important process.
If you have any questions regarding the survey and the budget development process, please contact Secretary-Treasurer, Danielle Haverstock at [email protected]
This one-time funding support will be allocated towards school-related expenses, including:
Family food security (groceries)
Athletic wear (for school athletics)
PAC hot lunch
We are happy to announce that we will partner with our local food banks to specifically provide more food for school breakfast, lunch or snack programs to meet the growing needs of students. We will work with our PAC to continue the conversation on how to use this fund (within the above criteria) to best support those students and families experiencing financial hardship.
If you would like to access the affordability fund, please reach out to our office or a member of our administrative team, and we will be happy to assist you.
To help support learning across environments, EASE K–7 lessons have been adapted for use by parents and caregivers to help children manage worries and everyday anxiety at home.
