News: Provincial budget 2017

Today, the provincial government tabled their budget and while more details are to come, Edmonton Public Schools is pleased to see continued funding for enrolment growth. Edmonton is a growing city, which means our District is growing too. Having predictable, stable funding to program for all students who come through our doors is essential.

The province has committed $488 million towards school infrastructure projects across the province, but will announce its plan to divide those funds next week. We are hopeful some of the District’s top capital priorities will be included in that announcement.

As a District, we look forward to working with the province to ensure we continue to support student success.
