Budget Process

2014/15 Budget Process

School District 42 meets the learning needs of approximately 14,000 students of all ages in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows, and is defined by its determination to keep student learning and growth at the heart of all its decisions.

All decisions made by the Maple Ridge – Pitt Meadows School District are guided by its vision and core values, and are based on research and consultation. Similarly, the district’s initiatives and resources are all aligned to support its firm commitment to continuous improvement, teaching and learning, effective use of technology, building and sustaining community and partner group relationships, and designing effective and sustainable support systems.

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 $5.02 million for 2014/15.
