Budget

LRSD is committed to fiscal and community responsibility, positioning our schools to better support an increasingly diverse and continuously growing student population. This is highlighted in our recently approved 2018-19 budget.

The budget has been designed to meet the needs of a projected 15,458 students. One of the budget's major priorities is to extend LRSD's educational reach to meet the many different needs of our students and families while maintaining a focus on fiscal responsibility. 

The approved budget was developed in consultation with community members, following the Division's mission to nurture partnerships between home, school and community. The Board and community members, including parents and staff, connected through public meetings and online surveys, allowing them to guide investments in LRSD.  

Our students are our greatest assets and our 2018-19 budget will impact students by improving supports for a growing diversity of needs and addressing the ongoing challenges of growing socio-economic inequities. 

The budget continues to keep administration costs low, in line with the Minister of Education's expectation. It also dedicates funds to maintaining and improving the Division's aging infrastructure and to increasing non-instructional spaces not funded by the Province.

Budget highlights include:

  • 20.5 full-time equivalent (FTE) new teachers to meet the needs of a growing student population and to help maintain lower class sizes

  • Additional dedicated Indigenous Education staff to honour our commitment to truth and reconciliation in LRSD

  • Supporting a growing diversity of student needs by adding a total of 24.65 FTE Educational Assistants 

  • Adding five staff in the new rehabilitation assistant role to assist our team of speech/language and occupational therapists

  • One additional itinerant English as an Additional Language (EAL) teacher and one additional itinerant EAL Educational Assistant to support a growing newcomer community 

  • Enhancing our Transition to Adulthood programming, which provides post-graduation support for students with exceptional needs

  • 1.5 FTE new student services teachers 

  • Continuing the Full-Day Kindergarten pilot (eight classrooms in four schools), a small investment that initial research suggests is having a significant impact, especially for our most vulnerable learners

We are confident that our 2018-19 budget helps ensure the health of LRSD's community of schools today and for years to come.
