2016-2017 Budget Information

On Wednesday, June 29th, the Board of Trustees approved a compliant budget of $660.9 million.

The Board of Trustees of the York Catholic District School Board (YCDSB) would like to thank its many stakeholders for their recent participation, which contributed invaluable input and feedback in assisting the Board with the Budget Development Process.

The Board’s Multi-Year Strategic Plan identifies four commitments to our stakeholders.  They include: the Integration of Catholic Faith, the Continuous Improvement of Student Achievement, the Effective Use of Our Resources and Engaging Our Communities. Faced with increasing financial restraints, these commitments continue to guide the Board’s decision-making on new investments and cost reductions.

To achieve a compliant budget, the Board of Trustees approved $4.4 million in cost reductions as well as $0.63 million in new investments during the 2016-2017 budget deliberations.

The Board is committed to working with the Ministry of Education to develop a successful Multi-Year Recovery Plan that will balance fiscal responsibility and student achievement to avoid impact in our classrooms.

The following is a summary of the decisions regarding areas for new investments and cost reductions.
