Overview Budget timelines Planning assumptions Major changes to budget Budget challenges Enrolment Budget consultation Budget risks Budget overview Revenue projections Expense determination Accumulated Surplus Staffing changes 2012-13 Budget reductions Planning Areas Future Focus Summary and Motions
  3. Budget timelines Budget planning is a 5 month process Once the process begins, timelines are tight to satisfy stakeholder and budget holder criteria in order to meet the Ministry deadline The Ministry will impose penalties for late filings The BAC was engaged through this process, though the information we could give to them was limited due to our struggle to balance the budget
  4. Planning Assumptions Ministry Requirements The overall budget must be balanced and compliant (no unsustainable use of reserves) Targeted funds must be used for specific initiatives (e.g. Early Learning) Administration and Governance expenditures cannot exceed allocation Compliance with legislation
  5. Planning Assumptions Continued... Our Requirements Presented budget must be balanced While reductions must be made and the impacts felt by all, impact at the student desk will be minimized B5 Funding Memo from Ministry will be used for grant and expense calculations (wages, sick days, gratuities) A conservative enrolment projection will be used Compliance with legislation, accounting regulations and contractual agreements Compliance with Board policies, specifically IV 007
  6. Major Changes to Budget Efficiency and Savings Measures per Ministry Continued savings measures: 1.5% Administration revenue reduction Information Technology Professional Development 1% Student Transportation for Boards who do not receive a “high” efficiency rating
  7. Major Changes to Budget continued… New savings measures: Salaries frozen Reduction to sick leave plans and retirement gratuities Reduction in Curriculum and Teaching Specialists 2013-14 anticipated savings measures: Adjusting grants for small and under-utilized schools Implementation of a 4 year high school program School board amalgamations
  8. Major Changes to Budget continued… Increased funding in the following areas: Elementary teacher prep time (10 minutes) Elementary teachers to reduce class sizes in grades 4-8 Grade 7 & 8 Student Success and Literacy and Numeracy teachers Secondary programming OMERS contributions Utility costs
  9. Budget Challenges Challenges faced with the 2012-13 budget preparation: Ministry restraint measures - $2.4 M Reduced funding yet Board costs do not always decline Difficult to project impact of some changes (sick leave plan) Collective agreements Uncertainty surrounding unionized contracts open for bargaining Continued declining enrolment - $5.3 M Special Education needs increasing every year Balancing within available funds
  10. Enrolment The Board enrolment decline is slowly steadying in elementary but secondary will be affected for the next 4 years Enrolment is a key driver for most of the grants we receive from the Ministry Enrolment projections are difficult to anticipate as actual results will vary
  11. Enrolment continued… Projected enrolment for 2012-13 was: Prepared by our Planning Department with a high, moderate and low scenario Presented to the Budget Advisory Committee for final decision on which scenario to use The BAC decided to use a low scenario to ensure our budget would be prepared conservatively
  12. 2012-2013 Enrolment Board enrolment continues to decrease with a reduction of 665 students (3.3%) projected for 2012-2013 over this time last year. Note: Early Learning and VISA students are not included in above totals as they are funded outside of the GSN
  13. Enrolment trends

Revenue calculation 92.5% of revenue is generated by enrolment through the Grants for Students Needs (GSNs) We also receive Extra Programming Other (EPO) grants for specific Ministry initiatives Other revenues such as VISA student tuition, rental, interest income etc. are derived from known sources as well as projections based on historical trends
  30. Total Revenues
  31. Total Revenues by Planning Area
  32. Expense determination Expenses are determined from legislative and contractual requirements, the Board Improvement Plan, Strategic Directions, Board Policy and other known infrastructure needs Budgets are prepared based on a zero base meaning there are no flat-lined budgets from previous years – everything requires justification and review by others
  33. Total Expenditures

  36. Accumulated Surplus (Reserves) *Note: 2011-2012 reflects Ministry adjustment of accumulated surplus
  37. Staffing Changes
  38. Budget Risks Enrolment projections vary from actual results Low risk given conservative approach applied Utility costs are subject to further pricing fluctuations Conservative approach taken in development of budget Proposed sick leave model impact unknown Impact on supply costs and salary costs Uncertainty of new collective agreements
  39. Budget reductions Budget reductions were necessary in order to balance the budget within available funding Reduced items include: Staffing reductions relating to enrolment decline Change in Special Education delivery model Overall professional development Deferral of technology projects and new resources Deferral of maintenance equipment renewal Cancellation of non-binding contracts and projects

  85. Student Services Data indicates: support for students who need assistance with self-regulation, and support for resolving conflict is key “Self-regulation is the ability to control your mental, emotional and physiological state to the task at hand.”
  86. Student Services We discovered that many of our students needed support with resolving conflicts and in developing their social skills.
