Lots of $$ still for marketing and advertising and “communications”. It is believed that OCSB has highest non-Catholic elementary population of any Catholic school board in Ontario as they market heavily to them.
Still almost $90K to rent Shaw Centre for a half day of fun for teachers before Thansgiving long weekend. “Christian Community day”
$59K more for extracurricular. Still full funding for “dance showcases”.
Govt grants are UP in almost every area.
I urge you to look at the budget supplementals. Tons of teacher “release time” (ie. Call in supply teachers) for things like dance showcase etc etc
Province funded $13M in teacher job protection.
OCSB refused to publicly release this budget until AFTER they voted on it. Most secretive board in Ontario??
Remember all the increases in the budget when you see all the teachers striking and work to rule in September!!
