On August 29th, 2022, the Ministry of Education and Child Care announced that it would be allocating $60 million in one-time funding to school districts to is to support children and families affected by rising inflation and associated cost of living challenges. The money is to be used to support families in need with school supplies, meals, and school-related fees.

School District No. 67 (Okanagan Skaha) will receive $604,177 in one-time funding from the Ministry of Education and Child Care to support students and families with costs associated with the return to school.

We are engaging in a consultation process with schools, parent advisory councils, and our Indigenous Rights-holders and community about how best to use this money to support the needs of families. Part of this process will include considering how to expand our existing meal programs, make sure students have the school supplies they need, and cover field trips, school and other activity fees.

Your voice is important, and we would appreciate your feedback on how we can best use the funding, following the Ministry's guidelines. Please complete the survey below. Survey will close on September 23, 2022.
