These districts and entities wrote to the BC Minister of Education (MOE) The Honourable Peter Fassbender, BC Minister of Finance The Honourable Michael de Jong Q.C., and the Premier of British Columbia The Honourable Christy Clark regarding the provincial budget announcements in 2015 informing them they must find a total of $29 million in administrative cuts in the next school year’s budget and an additional $25 million in the following year, and that these cuts must be sustained for future years. This totals a cumulative removal of $137 million from public education over the next three years. These cuts are in addition to addressing the pressures created by rising fixed costs, including rising electrical rates, medical service plan premiums and Next Generation Network. Click here to read their original letters or the Google Docs version with conversion errors.
