The OCDSB faces a shortfall of an estimated $14 million in the coming 2010/2011 school year budget. School Board staff and the school board’s Budget Committee have commenced planning for the coming year many months earlier than is the norm, to try to find an acceptable solution to this shortfall. OCASC has representation on the Budget Committee. Both OCASC and the OCDSB believe it is important to inform parents about the budget as much as possible, so that a mutual understanding can be reached, and there is informed community input to the deliberations. To this end, the OCASC web site and OCASC News will present regular nuggets of information related to the budget. If you have any information regarding the budget that you would like to know more about, please e-mail us with your suggestions.
