School district sets time line for 2014 budget process

The Prince Rupert School District has started the process for the 2014/2015 school year budget.

The Prince Rupert School District has started the process for the 2014/2015 school year budget, with a number of budget consultation events taking place in the beginning of 2014.

First, the school district will be holding a public information meeting and World Cafe Consultation in the evening of Thursday, Jan. 30.

“Typically we’ll have a number of tables and people can rotate around the tables and talk about what we’re doing in each area,” said Cam McIntyre, secretary-treasurer of School District 52.

The public will also be able to submit input online in the first part of the year, with the school district currently looking at various ways to do so.

Then in mid-February, the board will hold individual meetings with partner groups before the end of budget submissions on Feb. 21.

The board of education hopes to have the budget approved at its regular meeting on Tuesday, April 8.

Times and locations of the events will be released in the new year, as well as information regarding how the public can submit their thoughts.
