GECDSB Passes Balanced Budget

Trustees approve $534 million package

The Board of Trustees of the Greater Essex County District School Board unanimously approved the 2018-19 budget at a special meeting held today (Tuesday, June 19th).

Superintendent of Business Cathy Lynd characterized the operating budget of $459,676,635 plus a capital budget of $75,223,235 as “a good news budget” with “no significant changes” from the previous year.

Spending increases over the 2017-18 school year account for the hiring of new staff. Fifty-four new teaching positions, 8 Early Childhood Educators and 29 Educational Assistants have been added for next year.

The GECDSB is projecting enrollment increases for 2018-19 (over what had been budgeted for in 2017-18) of 482 elementary students and 217.5 secondary students.
