First Reading of 2014-15 Budget Passed


At last night's regular board meeting the Board of Education was presented with version three of the 2014-15 budget. A unanimous vote was passed in the first reading of the budget.

The attached documents outline the Sooke School District's Preliminary Budget Bylaw along with a Preliminary Operating Budget

The second and third reading of the budget will occur May 27 at the regular board meeting. 


The Board of Education approves the plan to re-configure the catchment areas in the Belmont Zone commencing September 2015, which will result in Ecole John Stubbs Memorial School becoming a single track French Immersion school.

The decision is a part of a district wide grade reconfiguration process that will see 3,600 students in the Belmont Zone move schools in September 2015. The grade reconfiguration will free up much needed space in elementary schools and align SD62 with other districts. 


2014-15 Proposed Budget


On Tuesday, April 15, the Board of Education was presented with version 2 of the 2014-15 proposed budget at the Public Budget Meeting. 

A third version of the budget will be presented to the board on April 22 based on the feedback we received from stakeholders on April 15.
