Few things will have a big impact on this year’s budget. Hiring of a new teacher last year.Last year it was mentioned that would be taken from
We are going to show a deficit right now but that is actually based on last year’s spending.
Dave asked - in layman’s terms - are we ok?

Things that can help swing this to a surplus - receiving finding for 5 First Nations students needing special needs attention. Thomas saying don’t count on it as a given, but the students needs would be close to $100,000. We are hoping that if that happens, we will be able to hire one more full time EA.
