Yellowknife Education District No. 1 (Yk 1) is heading into the new school year with a leaner $38 million budget and with about the same number of staff members if funding for Indigenous support programs materializes.

The draft budget, still subject to approval by the Department of Education, Culture and Employment (ECE), is slightly less than the actual projected budget for the current 2019-2020 school year of around $39.8 million. The budget proposes that Yk1’s projected expenses for the next school year come to $38.1 million with a net deficit of $300,000.

Its expenditures break down into 64.4 per cent for school programs, 17.39 per cent for inclusive and special needs schooling, 10.10 per cent for maintenance, 4.21 per cent for administration, 2.43 per cent for Aboriginal Languages education and 0.57 per cent for accommodation.

As Tram Do, director of Corporate Services told the meeting members last week, ECE provides around 80 per cent of Yk1’s revenue, with a property tax allocation from the City of Yellowknife accounting for 18 per cent and two per cent from Yk1-generated revenues.
