Dauphin, Canada

Mountain View School Division’s Public Budget Forum was last night.

Following the cuts to education from the province, there was no surprise that the expected budget took a step back for 2018-19.

The forum was an open discussion about how to distribute those dollars throughout the province.

The outlined draft Budget Revenue predicted a provincial funding decrease of just over $207,000, while operating revenues are projected to decrease by just under $593,000 compared to 2017.

Educational Assistant time was proposed to decrease by 18 hours per day, total expenditures were projected to decrease by just over $173,000.
