It’s a positive turnaround for the Huron-Superior Catholic District School Board. This time last year, the board had a deficit of $450,000. But thanks to some prudent moves, the board has turned last year’s deficit into a surplus of $600,000 for the next school year.
The board is also expecting 23 more elementary students than projected resulting in the creation of two-a-half full-time equivalent jobs. However the Catholic board is also projecting a drop of about 100 high school students meaning the loss of nearly five secondary school positions.
