The Flin Flon School Board presented their budget plans for the 2019-20 school year at a public meeting last night. The Division has planned a budget of just under 14.92 million dollars for the year an increase of .15 percent from this year’s budget. Provincial funding for the Division for 2018 was just over 9.2 million and 2019-20 is up 1.6 percent or just over 145 thousand dollars.
The School Division will be keeping the mill rate the same as last year at 21.46 which results in a just over 120 thousand dollar decrease to the 2019 municipal revenue request.
Total school enrollment as of last September 30th was 980 up 30 from the previous September. One of their larger proposed expenses is to hire three new Educational Assistants at a cost of 105 thousand dollars, they will be maintaining all of their programs and they have met the provincial mandate of 4.5 percent on administration expenses. The proposed budget requires approval from the Board at their next meeting.
The budget presentation and survey results will be posted on the School Division website later today.
