WATCH: Central Okanagan schools to face shortfall in September
KELOWNA, B.C. – The Central Okanagan School District is juggling financing as it deals with a $4 million shortfall for the fall.
While some schools have savings to dip into, they will have to come up with $70 per student that won’t be coming from the district.
Everything from MSP payment increase to a CUPE settlement must be paid for by the district, not the provincial government.
About 16 district employees who are retiring will not be replaced, according to Superintendent Hugh Gloster.
