The provincial budget will be announced Thursday and there has been considerable speculation about education budgets being cut by five per cent and contractual obligations not being funded.

In Palliser, a seven per cent funding reduction (a five per cent cut with an additional impact of unfunded contractual increases) would amount to $5.1 million.

Here's what that amount of money would mean in terms of our staff.

The Board of Trustees encourages Palliser families to speak to their MLA and voice their support for sustainable and predictable funding for education.

Thank you to Holy Spirit School Division for its leadership on portraying the budget implications on its schools. If every jurisdiction could demonstrate the implications in such terms, the public would have a far better sense of what's at stake for students.
