Campbell River school district grant less than projected

The total grant money the district received from the Ministry of Education was $87,377 lower

School District 72’s Secretary-Treasurer Kevin Patrick presented the Board of Education with the final grant comparison for 2013/2014.

The total grant money the district received from the Ministry of Education was $87,377 lower than preliminary projections. Enrollment numbers remained on target to the preliminary projections and a reduction in salary differential (the reduction of the average costs of teacher salaries due to retirements) was offset by an increase in special education students and the release of holdback dollars by the Ministry of Education.
