Flin Flon School Division Will See an Increase in Provincial Funding.

The province says it's raising funding to public elementary and high schools by half a percentage point or 6-point-6 million dollars. Even though more than half of all school boards in Manitoba will receive less government money in the coming school year Flin Flon School Division will receive 9.4 million dollars which is a 1.6 percent increase including an increase in equalization support and a 1.1 percent increase in enrolment which is partially offset by the Tax Incentive Grant phase out.

Education Minister Kelvin Goertzen says the province's wage freeze on public sector workers should help schools control their costs. He also says divisions will not be allowed to raise local property taxes by more than two per cent.
