2024-2025 Draft Annual Budget - Survey and April 23rd Livestream Meeting

The Board of Education is inviting feedback from the public regarding 2024/2025 budget priorities in order to inform the budget process. The 2024/25 Annual Budget is prepared over several months and completed in June. The district is projected to receive $199 million in revenue of which 95% comes from the Provincial Government. Of the revenue received, currently 85% is spent on operating, administering and maintaining the schools and district facilities.  There is currently an operating budget shortfall of approximately $2 million dollars.  The Board is therefore considering reductions to expenses for its submission of a balanced budget to the Ministry of Education and Child Care. The Board’s focus is to ensure available resources support the Strategic Plan and student success. Further information on the 2024/25 draft budget is available here.

2024/2025 Annual Budget feedback may be submitted in the following ways:

  • Survey on the district website – open from April 18 to May 3, 2024
  • A public livestream meeting on the 2024/25 Annual Budget was held on April 23, 2024. The recording of the meeting and a copy of the slides from the presentation are available here.
  • Email: [email protected]
  • Mail: 2100 Ferry Ave, Prince George, BC V2L 4R5

All of the feedback received will be provided to the Board of Education in May 2024.
