Budget 2021-2022

Vancouver Board of Education

Update: The timeline for the development of the 2021-2022 budget has now been fully approved.  Decisions on the timeline were made at the November 30, 2020 and December 14, 2020 Board meetings.

The budget email address (budget2021-2022@vsb.bc.ca)  is now active for accepting written submissions regarding budget priorities for development of the 2021-2022 operating budget.  For background, please refer to the Budget Development Process document (linked here).  All written submissions to the Board are considered to be public documents.  The Board, therefore, reserves the right to make any submissions available to the public.

The Board will be receiving a draft status quo operating fund budget on March 29, 2021 at a Special Board meeting.  Questions or comments on the draft budget for the Committee of the Whole meetings scheduled for April 6 and 15, 2021 are also submitted through this email address and will be presented at the meeting.
