School District No. 42 will holding a public feedback forum Monday, 7 p.m. at Thomas Haney secondary, allowing parents to have a say in what they would like included in the district’s 2012/13 budget.
The district wants to know what areas they feel should be a funding priority and if they have any suggestions for efficiencies or cost savings.
District staff is predicting an enrollment decline equivalent to 258 full-time students for the next school year. Provincial school funding is tied to enrollment.
While the district will have less funding to count on, the 2012/13 budget likely won’t see as harsh of cuts as in previous years, according to staff.
The forum takes place in Room 2031 – 2034 at Thomas Haney secondary, (23000 – 116th Avenue).
