CUPE Local 441 backs School District 63 at special meeting

CUPE Local 441 backs School District 63 at special meeting

SAANICH – Like many school boards throughout B.C., Saanich School District has been forced into a position where it will have to make cuts that will have a direct impact on school kids. Reductions in service will affect all K-12 students next year. 

SD63 cannot balance its budget because of two actions by the BC Liberal government:

  • The Province moved $700,000 of administrative savings into the general budget rather than dedicating those savings to programs and services for students.
  • SD63 is being forced to pay $314,000 of annual costs for a new provincial network for internet access, up from $30,000 for the previous system, PLNet.

These two actions taken together equal $1,000,000 which amounts to SD63’s shortfall.

Who:            SD63 Trustees, Confederation of Parent Advisory Councils in Saanich (COPACS), CUPE 441 members, Saanich Teachers’ Association (STA), the public

What:           Special Budget Meeting

Where:         School District 63 Board Office
                        2125 Keating Crossroad, Saanich

When:          Wednesday, April 27, 2016

Time:            7 – 9 pm
