  • A decrease of (2.44) FTE teaching positions, which includes the following: an increase of 0.47 FTE for enrollment growth,  an increase of 1.20 FTE due to a reallocation of funds from a management reduction, a decrease of (1.11) FTE non-ratio positions due to funding and a reduction of 3.0 FTE teaching positions in order to balance the budget.

  • A decrease of (2.61) FTE support staff, which includes the following; increases of 0.58 FTE Educational Assistants (EAs) and 0.38 FTE Custodial Assistants and reductions of (0.09) FTE Lunchroom Assistants, (0.46) FTE Clerical, (2.00) FTE Bus Drivers and (1.00) FTE management position.

Brandon School Division is in the process of developing its Budget for the 2021-2022 school year.  Being mindful of the current Public Health Orders in place regarding Covid-19 and late receipt of funding documents provided by the Provincial Government, our budget process is going to look a bit different this year.

As such, our Preliminary Budget Presentation that was scheduled for Thursday, February 18, 2021 at 7:00 pm, has been cancelled.  Senior Administration and the Board of Trustees are working hard behind the scenes to prepare the upcoming budget and will provide further details regarding dates for the presentation, consultation and deliberations that typically take place.
