School District No. 42 (Maple Ridge – Pitt Meadows) is estimating that, due to several cost pressures beyond its control, it will be facing an operating budget funding shortfall of $5.66 million for 2013/2014.

In accordance with the School Act, school districts in the province must approve a balanced budget and submit it to the Ministry of Education by June 30, 2013. As School District No. 42 began planning for 2013/14, it invited parents, staff, community members and partner groups to participate in the budget development process by sharing their thoughts on how the school district might achieve a balanced budget that addresses current priorities while remaining fiscally responsible.

A Budget Survey was prepared for the purpose of collecting this feedback, which will be one of several important factors that will inform the development of the Proposed Preliminary Budget for 2013/14. The results of the budget survey are posted below in pdf format.
