School district seek budget input from public

Residents are invited to give local trustees feedback as the board of education gets set to make its final budget decisions for the 2011-2012 school year.

The meeting is scheduled for Monday, April 18 at 7 p.m. (the incorrect date was published in last weekend’s paper) at R.A. McMath Secondary School in Steveston.

Early estimates indicate the board may have up to $2 million in additional revenue from grants to allocate for the upcoming year.

“This meeting will be an opportunity for the public to comment and give feedback before the board makes final budget decisions on May 2, 2011,” Richmond school district superintendent Monica Pamer said in a press release.

All members of the public, students, staff and stakeholders are welcome to attend and provide input.

A list of suggestions and recommendations from district staff will be available on the district’s website at www.sd38.bc.ca after Friday, April 15.
