Settling out

School District 20 settles funding shortfall for programs in the area.

Trail Times

Three community schools are breathing a sigh of relief after budget cuts to their youth at risk programs weren’t as deep as originally thought.

At a June board meeting, School District 20 (SD20) superintendent Greg Luterbach revealed a $19,000 budget shortfall in the CommunityLINK program, jeopardizing child and youth at risk programs based out of Webster Elementary, Robson Elementary and Blueberry Creek Community School (BCCS).

After much back and forth on numbers, the board ultimately decided to allocate its $80,000 budget three ways: $40,000 to Robson Elementary; $20,000 to BCCS; and $20,000 to Columbia Alliance for Literacy (CBAL) based out of Webster Elementary.

We are thankful for the school district’s support and look forward to maintaining that partnership in the years to come,” said Desneiges Profili, for Trail CBAL.
