SCDSB Balances Budget for 2007-08 School Year

June 25, 2007 - Trustees with the Sudbury Catholic District School Board proved successful in passing a balanced budget for the 2007-2008 school year at the last board meeting before the summer break. The approved budget of $72,230,115 will sustain the positive momentum that has been achieved in the Board’s new initiatives and programs such as the “Learning with Laptops” program and complies with the objectives set by the Ministry of Education with respect to the reduction of class sizes in the primary classes.

With respect to curriculum, the 2006-2007 level of support for curriculum services including special education, professional development, special assignment teachers and secondary school co-ordinators, as well as the level of teacher support in curriculum in-service has been maintained. The budget allows for the retention of the Faith Animator position and provides for a chaplain in each of the board’s four secondary schools. There will be no reduction in the amount of the support from technology and school-administrative lines.

Rossella Bagnato, Interim Director of Education for the Sudbury Catholic District School Board is pleased with the budget. “I am very happy with the fact that the Board was able to bring in a balanced budget,” stated Bagnato. “The new budget will allow us to meet Ministry of Education regulation and obligations and we will continue to deliver quality services and programs to our students in order that they may achieve their maximum potential.”

Board Chair, Paula Peroni is also pleased with the budget. “Over the past few months, Trustees and Senior Administration have worked extremely hard to bring in a balanced budget that addresses some of the key priorities of the Board and its stake holders. This new budget will allow us to move forward on present initiatives such maintaining our Special Education Program, the reduction of class sizes in our primary grades and the upgrading of our wireless laptop program in Grade 9 from I-books to Macbooks which are state of the art and more efficient.”
