2015/16 Draft budget presentations PSA​​

Message from Sherri Rollins, Finance Committee Chair

Dear Parents, Residents and Members of the School Community:

The Winnipeg School Division (WSD) Board of Trustees and administration has received extensive feedback from our community – feedback that is helping to guide us as we finalize the 2015/16 budget. In addition to an online survey, we met with parents at District Advisory Council meetings in all parts of WSD and had a good turn out to our Special Budget Meeting on Feb. 23, 2015. We had two presenters at the budget meeting who gave us even more to consider in our deliberations. Thank you Mr. Terence Clifford and Mrs. Karen Serwonka for your time and presentations.

I have mentioned before that we have hard choices to make. Our intention is to maintain services and programs while we manage costs, maintain school buildings and infrastructure, and use resources efficiently. We are guided by principles in drafting this budget which include consideration of public schools’ role in society and culture, advocating on behalf of students to ensure appropriate care and support services are provided, making our school communities safe, providing nurturing learning environments, and challenging students to achieve and succeed.

We will post information on this website about the final budget later this month. Thank you for your interest and comments as we work through this process. Please remember, understanding the needs of our school communities is something we do year-round. You can also submit written feedback at any time to the Board Office – mailing address:
