Public school board to vote on budget


The Rainy River District School Board will vote on its 2011-12 budget at a special meeting tonight.
The $48,338,008 budget for the upcoming school year is up for approval during the public portion of the meeting, which begins at 7 p.m. at the board office (currently located in the old Robert Moore School building).
Also tonight, the board’s finance committee will bring forward two other items, including that the board “consecutively initiate the formal Pupil Accommodation Review process for Donald Young School, Sturgeon Creek School, and Crossroads School.”
It also is recommending the board, as part of the Northern Ontario Education Leader Consortium (NOEL), agree that the NOEL/York Regional Consortium incorporates at a non-profit corporation to be called “Compass for Success.”
Prior to the public session, trustees will meet in-camera from 6-6:45 p.m. concerning a “litigation matter,” according to the meeting agenda.
A second special board meeting is slated for 2 p.m. tomorrow at the Education Centre here, with trustees again meeting in-camera concerning a litigation matter.
