Toronto Catholic District School Board

TCDSB Approves Balanced Budget

Makes Additional Investments in Staffing,

Equity and Technology

 
The Toronto Catholic District School Board at the June 6th meeting of the Corporate Services, Strategic Planning and Property Committee, approved a balanced budget for 2018-2019.
 
The $1.14 billion budget provides for a one time investment in computer technology for classrooms, as well as investments in staffing.
 
“We appreciate the feedback provided by parents, staff, students and other community members through our annual budget consultations,” says TCDSB Chair Barbara Poplawski. “The decision as to where we invest available resources was very much driven by the input received through that consultation process.”
 
The increase in staffing investments provides for the creation of 98.9 full time equivalent positions including classroom teachers and special education supports, as well as the addition of an Equity and Human Rights Advisor.
 
“This budget reflects the Board’s continued commitment to the goals of our Multi-Year Strategic Plan including stewardship of resources and student achievement and well-being,” says Director of Education Rory McGuckin. “We continue to look for ways to focus spending in areas which will directly benefit the students in the classroom.”
