2016/2017 Financial Statements

The Board of Trustees received and approved the financial statements for the 2016/2017 school year.  It was noted by the auditors that this was an unusual year for the following reasons:

-The financial statements involved the reconstruction and payment of Mary Duncan School which resulted in a major change to the School Division’s capital assets.  $17,000,000 was added to capital assets because of the reconstructed school which replaced an old devalued building.

-In addition the school bus that had been ordered for 2016/2017 did not arrive on time and these surplus funds of $175,000 must be used this current year.

-On a positive note, an additional $262,000 was received from the insurance coverage and must be used to complete the furnishings of Mary Duncan school.
