For most parents, their experience with the School District is defined by their contact with their school, the classroom and their child’s teacher. But there is a great deal going on behind the scenes to support that picture.
For the year ending June 30, 2012, the District spent over $39 million in salaries and benefits alone and employed over 800 people, including teachers, administrative, support and replacement staff. All those paycheques were prepared and issued by two payroll clerks at the Board office.
For the year ending June 30, 2012, the District spent over $8 million in supplies and services. The work to confirm, prepare and issue payments is done by the equivalent of 1.7 staff in the finance department. Overall, the District distributed in excess of $48 million for the 2011-12 school year – most of which was spent in our communities.
In addition to the payroll and accounting staff, the District employs one person to do reception and accounts receivable. The finance department and its staff is supervised by the Assistant Secretary Treasurer. The Assistant Secretary Treasurer is responsible for accounting for the daily operations of the District and preparation of various financial reports, including the audited financial statements.
One of the most significant jobs of this department is the preparation and co-ordination of the District’s annual operating budget. The budget process includes specific opportunities for representatives of the District Parent Advisory Council, the support staff union and the teachers’ union to directly address the Board with their concerns. Budget meetings are public and typically occur throughout the month of April. Please see "Budget FAQ" for more information about the budget process.

Executive Compensation Disclosure Report
Boards of Education are required to complete the Public Sector Executive Compensation Reporting Guidelines for each fiscal year.
This requirement applies to chief executive officers and the next four highest paid executives, where these positions hold an annual base salary of $125,000 or more. Where the Superintendent does not earn an annual base salary of $125,000 or more, there is still a requirement to file a disclosure report for that position.
