Toronto Catholic District School Board

2016 - 2017 TCDSB Budget Approved

 

Following extensive consultations and deliberations, Toronto Catholic District School Board Trustees approved a balanced budget of $1.078 billion for 2016-2017 at the Student Achievement and Wellbeing, Catholic Education and Human Resources Committee meeting on June 2, 2016.

 

To achieve the balanced budget, Trustees approved $16.4 million in expenditure savings, which includes plans to identify an additional $2 million in savings during the 2016-2017 academic year. These will be found through efficiencies that do not impact students in the classroom. Any staff reductions will also be first achieved through retirements and attrition.
