DB: Annual Budget

D: Fiscal Management

One of the primary responsibilities of the Board of School Trustees (the “Board”) is to prudently administer the block of funds provided by the Provincial Government, to be used for the provision of educational programs.  The annual school district budget is the financial outline of the district's educational program. 

The Board regards the annual budgeting process as an important function of the operation of the schools and considers that it should serve as a means to improve communications and goal-setting involvement both within the school system and between the schools and the residents of Vancouver.  The Board also sees the budgeting process as a way of finding out about the community's expectations.  It is the policy of the Board to communicate to the provincial government any local concerns about the funding system.

DMT Responsibility: CONT.
