Letter: Invitation to school district budget meetings

Editor:

The Board of Education of School District 51 (Boundary) invites the community, along with parents, students and school district staff, to attend one of two public budget meetings; April 18 at 6 p.m. at Boundary Central Secondary School (BCSS) library and April 19 at 6 p.m. at Grand Forks Secondary School (GFSS) library.

We will provide some preliminary information about the sources of our funding and a provincial overview.

We will be asking for commentary based on this year’s 2011-12 budget, specifically what areas the board should be considering as we develop the budget for the coming school year to best serve the needs of our students.

As a publicly funded school system that serves our children and their families, community consultation is very important to the school district.

This means providing information and asking for public input as we develop our budget is essential.

We look forward to talking with you at BCSS on April 18 and GFSS on April 19.

Teresa Rezansoff, Board of Education of School District 51 (Boundary)
