A $124 million dollar budget was passed on Wednesday for the 2012-2013 school year at Chinook's Edge School Division.
Budgeted expenses exceeded budgeted revenues by $2.9 million, but after adjustments were made to reflect amortized capital expenses and other details it results in only a $1.1 million decline to the reserves.
Treasurer Susan Roy says the main difference from last year's budget is the
way they're now allocating resources to schools.
According to Roy, they reinstated the Family School Wellness Program, which allows social workers to be present in nearly every building.
Roy says, while it was a labour intensive process, Chinook's Edge came out with a
better budget overall this year.
