HIGHLIGHTS OF THE REGULAR BOARD MEETING
North Highlands Elementary
May 26, 2014
On May 26, 2014 the Board met for their Regular monthly meeting.
Correspondence was received from the Department of Education regarding TCA projects.
A presentation was made by students of North Highlands Elementary. Grade Four student Ali MacKinnon, Grade Five student Rory MacKinnon and Grade Six student Emma MacKinnon did their speeches from the public speaking competition. They also had a bullying video from the 2/3 class and a nutrition video from the P/1 class.
The presentations were excellent and very informative.
Mr. Ambrose White, Superintendent followed up with his report. (posted on the Board website) Highlights of his report included The Cape Breton-Victoria Regional School Board welcomes Minister of Education and Early Childhood Development, Karen Casey, on May 29th. Minister Casey will visit with the Board and discuss issues, concerns, trends and other topics. She will also be here to open the NSSBA Annual Meeting. I will be visiting schools with Minister Casey on Friday morning, May 30th. We will visit several schools within our Board, and I look forward to the opportunity.
The Minister announced another Schools Plus site for our Board to be located at John Bernard Croak School. This announcement took place on Friday, May 23, and this is once again providing a wonderful service to students and families in the Glace Bay area. Our site at Sherwood Park Education Centre has proven to be an extremely valuable program, and I am confident the new site in Glace Bay will be likewise. We hope to open a third site in the Northside area in the future to service Victoria County as well.

CAPE BRETON-VICTORIA REGIONAL SCHOOL APPROVES BUDGET FOR 2015-2016
CAPE BRETON-VICTORIA REGIONAL SCHOOL APPROVES BUDGET FOR 2015-2016 Posted by Administrator (July 8, 2015 7:47:am)

CAPE BRETON-VICTORIA REGIONAL SCHOOL APPROVES BUDGET
FOR 2015-2016

During a Special Board meeting held on Monday, July 6, 2015 the Cape Breton-Victoria Regional School Board approved a $143,944,236 operating budget for the 2015-2016 fiscal year.
Education funding reduction due to declining enrollment and unanticipated cost pressures translated into a budget shortfall of $4,025,731.  The following budget reductions have been approved by the CBVRSB:

  • NSTU Staff reduction - 36.5 positions
  • Teacher Assistant reduction - 14 positions
  • LBG Supervisory reduction - 6 positions
  • Library Tech reduction - 2 positions
  • Secretarial support - 2 positions
  • Tradesperson - 1 position
  • Cleaning position - 1 position

Most of the above noted cuts were realized through attrition with the exception of Teacher Assistants. 
The opening of the new bus garage in Sydney will mitigate against potential environmental liabilities as well as significantly improve the service delivery model for our buses and service vehicles. 
Through targeted funding, the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development have added an additional SchoolsPlus program which will be based at Dr. TL Sullivan.  They have also provided funding for targeted initiatives in Literacy and Math along with lower class sizes from Primary to Four.
It is the intent of the Board through their Long-Range Outlook to achieve savings and create further efficiencies in order to address some of the cost pressures over the next five years.
