CECCE Delivers Balanced Budget Focused on Student Services

June 8, 2016, OTTAWA - During its regular meeting on June 7, 2016, Conseil des écoles catholiques du Centre-Est (CECCE) trustees approved a balanced $325.7 million budget to support student well-being and success.


“Over the years, the CECCE has invested in enhancing programs, services and facilities, all of which are essential to enabling both students and staff to thrive,” explained Johanne Lacombe, CECCE Chair. “The administration has demonstrated sound management and due diligence in preparing a balanced budget that, despite the financial pressure affecting school boards across the province, will ensure we continue to deliver high-quality services for all CECCE students.”


The budget for the 2016-17 school year is $6.5 million higher than the current year’s budget. It includes funding to hire approximately 40 people to better meet students’ needs and staff two new schools. This includes 28 elementary and secondary school teachers and five special education teachers for the coming school year.


The board will make major investments to continue delivering strategies, programs and services for student well-being and success. The 2016-17 budget includes $8.7 million for the student identity development strategy and $2.4 million for transforming the learning experience.


Réjean Sirois, CECCE Director of Education: “In all, 74% of the budget is allocated to teaching. These investments will enable the board to deliver programs and services that meet students’ needs. Because we have invested directly in classrooms over the past few years, CECCE students’ results are exceeding provincial expectations and standards.”


School board funding is based primarily on the number of students enrolled in schools. Every year, the CECCE develops a budget aligned with its annual priority objectives. For 2016-17, those objectives are as follows: improving performance outcomes and indicators that need more work, transforming the learning experience, recruiting and retaining more students, optimizing procedures and sound management, and risk management.
