TDSB Approves Balanced Budget for 2016-17

More resources focused on supporting schools and students

Thursday, May 26, 2016
Categories: News Releases

Toronto District School Board Trustees have approved a balanced budget for the 2016-17 school year that will align resources more closely to schools, as well as programs that have a direct impact on students.

The budget reflects the reorganization of central staff to allow for the creation of four new Learning Centres. These centres will enable the TDSB to be more responsive to schools, and better support teachers and administrators in improving student achievement.

To address the $21 million projected deficit, the budget also contains a list of cost saving measures, including reductions to central department budgets and the restructuring of central and Facility Services positions.

Quick Facts:

  • The TDSB’s operating budget is approximately $3.1 billion and is divided into the following categories: instruction (78.9%), school operations (14.9%), administration (2.8%), transportation (1.9%) and other operating costs (1.5%).
  • There are no additional costs associated with the creation of the Learning Centres.
  • The approved budget plan also includes $5.8 million of savings to be found in year. Staff will continue to review operational expenditures to look for efficiencies.
  • Staff salaries and benefits represent approximately 83% of total expenses. The staff allocation report for the 2016-17 school year was approved by Trustees at the March 9, 2016 Board meeting.

“Trustees have approved a balanced budget that puts students and schools first, and will have a direct impact on classroom instruction and student achievement.”

- Robin Pilkey, Chair, TDSB

"With this budget, we are focusing more resources on the classroom to better support our schools and respond to the needs of our students.”

- John Malloy, Director, TDSB
