Board Meeting Highlights - August 25, 2020

Board Approves the 2020/2021 Budget

The Board of Trustees of AMDSB received and approved the 2020/2021 Budget at a Special meeting on Tuesday, August 25. Superintendent of Corporate Services Carter shared that the budget was drafted prior to the finalization of the September 2020 Return to School plans, and so will in all likelihood differ with the Revised Budget submission in December.
The operating budget presented includes Operating Revenues and Transfers of Reserves of $214,984,443 and Operating Expenses of the same. The capital budget approved includes Capital Spending of $20,477,563. While the operating budget is compliant with the Ministry of Education's budget compliance rule, the total operating deficit for the 2020/2021 year is expected to be $1,870,516.

The Trustees made a motion to discuss questions arising about the multi-layer plan that AMDSB is putting in place for the reopening of schools. The "AMDSB Back to School Plan" will be distributed to families on August 26 and posted on the Back to School Planning webpage.
