School division rolls out numbers during budget consultation


Kelsey School Division (KSD) held their public budget consultation last week and the division gave the public the opportunity to learn a little bit about how the division allocates their funding and where it comes from as well as some capital projects for which the division could be investing in the coming year.
This years’ budget is being undertaken under the shadow of the province’s education review, the first major review of the education system is over 60 years. The review is slated to be made public in March and it is unknown if it will have any major changes to how divisions derive their funding.
“This added unavailable information about what impact will actually hit us in March -or down the road after March- is one thing that we are thinking about every time we are looking at budgets,” explained Kelsey School Division Board of Trustees Chairperson Vaughn Wadelius who made a brief presentation of some information for those who attended.
