All successful high-performing organizations undertake some form of strategic or long term financial planning. In Saanich an annual budget is prepared and adopted in May and subsequently amended the following February after enrolment and funding is known. Provincial funding estimates are received in mid-March for the upcoming school year and final funding figures for the fiscal year are released in late December of the school year. Staff and parents participate in working groups and report on budget development objectives. The school communities, public budget meetings, surveys on our web site, and budget advisory committee provide feedback on the working group findings and additional information to the Board. Information about past and upcoming budgets, as well as other financial statements, can be found through the links in the sidebar. If you have any questions or comments regarding the budget, please email us. We welcome your feedback.
