At the OCDSB Budget Committee meeting on Monday, December 14, staff presented a list of possible budget changes (note that changes means mainly cuts, but also a few revenue generating possibilities) to deal with the $14 million shortfall that is being predicted for the coming 2010/2011 school year. The changes presented by staff totaled approximately $17 million, with an additional approximately $ 1 million in options being added during the December 14 meeting. This means that to meet the $14 million shortfall, trustees will be able to eliminate up to $ 4 million in cuts.
The list of staff options for budget changes can be viewed on the OCDSB website. View the report, with the list of options at the end.
