The Greater Victoria School District made its 2011/2012 annual budget presentation last week.

The $172-million operating budget is based on the district’s 47 schools having an enrolment of 19,374 full time equivalent students – an increase of 200 students from the September 2010 enrolment. Of those, 257 students are adult.

The district plans for 1,180 educator positions and 820 non-teaching staff members. Instructional staffing was budgeted based on the 2010/2011 operating budget.

The Greater Victoria School Board reconvenes at 7 p.m. April 11 at the board office, 556 Boleskine Rd. to approve the budget.
