A balanced $352.1 million budget for the success and well-being of CECCE students

June 7, 2017, OTTAWA The school trustees of the Conseil des écoles catholiques du Centre-Est (CECCE) approved a balanced $352.1 million budget at their regular June 6 meeting in Kingston. This budget will support each student’s success and well-being and implement the CECCE’s vision for the 2017-2018 school year.

“The very high level of confidence that the CECCE’s parents demonstrate by enrolling their children in our French-language Catholic schools enables the CECCE to continue its innovative efforts to transform the learning experience and thereby continue ensuring the success and well-being of each student entrusted to the CECCE,” explained Johanne Lacombe, Chair of the CECCE. “A balanced budget was achieved through growth in enrolment and, in particular, additional funding for local priorities,” she added.

This injection of new funding will allow the CECCE to hire  nearly 80 additional employees to meet students’ and operational needs within the system.

Funding has also been allocated to ensure the continuity of student programs and services, including $9.5 million for cultural identity strategy, $2.5 million for literacy and numeracy coaching and support, $2.5 million for transformation of the learning experience, and $2.8 million for the organization’s caring, health, and well-being strategy.

This budget will also allow for the deployment of targeted strategies and required resources to achieve top-priority objectives, improve the CECCE’s performance, and continue the advancement of the transformation of the learning experience and the development of Student Exit Profile’s 21st Century skills.

Réjean Sirois, Director of Education of the CECCE, is very pleased with the proposed budget. “The 2017-2018 budget accurately reflects the CECCE’s strategic directions and its vision of excellence and caring. Thanks to careful strategic planning, the CECCE remains focused on the priorities included in its four-year plan under four themes, namely the success and well-being of each student, the transformation of the learning experience, the strengthening of the CECCE’s leadership and influence and the increase of its appeal, and the improvement of the organization’s effectiveness and agility. I am confident that the resource allocation proposed in this budget accurately reflects the commitments set out in the CECCE’s strategic planning, which, we note in passing, places the student at the heart of our concerns.”

This budget represents a $17.4 million increase, or 5.2%, over 2016-2017. This increase is due to factors such as enrollment growth of 464 students and investments in local priorities. It bears repeating that school board funding is based on student enrollment levels.

success and well-being of each student
