CAPE BRETON-VICTORIA REGIONAL SCHOOL APPROVES BUDGET
The Cape Breton-Victoria Regional School Board approved a $142,623,596 budget for 2016/17 during a special meeting of the Board held on June 29, 2016.
Declining enrollment continues to be a major challenge for the Board. When the Board amalgamated in 1996 the funded enrollment was 24,045. Currently for 2016/17 our enrollment is 12,545 a drop of 50% over 20 years.
To address the school capacity issue, the Board made the decision at a public Board meeting held on April 12, 2016 to close 17 schools over the next 5 years, 10 of these schools will close their doors effective September 1, 2016.
The closure of 10 schools for this coming school year not only facilitates our ability to balance our budget but also provides capacity to sustain programming for students.
To balance the budget, the following net reductions have been approved:
- 16.25 (FTE’s) school based Nova Scotia Teachers Union (NSTU) to reflect the decline in student enrollment and the critical mass achieved from the school closures. The reductions were all addressed through attrition.
- 27.3 (FTE’s) school based and operations based (CUPE) positions to reflect the drop in student enrollment and the closure of 10 schools for 2016/17.
- 3 FTE’s eliminated in Regional administration office.
- Host of other non-salaried efficiencies achieved primarily due to school closures.
However, it should be noted that due to targeted funding from EECD, and improved efficiencies in the 2016/17 budget, the Board has the capacity to invest further into the Minister’s action plan to improve student achievement in the areas of Math and Literacy.
Increased targeted funding for 2016/17 will allow the Board to implement the class size cap as recommended for grades five and six.
In addition, provisions for increased bus services, secretarial support and Lunch Bus & Ground services.
The Cape Breton-Victoria Regional School Board is committed to continue improving student achievement in all corners of the Board.
