A reduction in their budget is what Mountain View School Division is facing this year.

Despite the provincial government announcing an increase in funding for public schools, they also want administration costs in all school divisions cut back.

MVSD Superintendent CEO, Donna Davidson, notes what the division will be focused on maintaining:

“As we did last year, we realized a two percent reduction in our budget, and our focus was on maintaining classroom teachers and classroom support.  That is going to be our primary focus going forward.  What’s important is that we have quality instructors in our classrooms, with the required supports to meet the diverse learning needs of the students entrusted in our care.”

Details on MVSD’s budget are expected to be released early next week.
