School districts will see an additional $84 million in operating funding over last year, the highest funding level ever.

The additional funding brings school district operating funding for the 2009-10 school year to $4.551 billion. The per-pupil funding is increasing even though districts throughout the province forecast they will have almost 7,000 fewer students next year.

Peace River North is one of the few school districts across the province that will actually see an increase in enrollment.  In 2009-2010 Peace River North will get $52 million from the province compared to $50 million this year.  The province also expects enrollment in the region to grow by almost 200 students to 5.638.
