2015-16 School Year Funding

The government demonstrated its commitment to Alberta students in May by restoring funding for the 2015-16 school year.

An interim supply bill was introduced in June to ensure regular operation of the education system until the full Budget is delivered in the fall.

Specifically, the government is:

  • Providing enrolment growth funding for the 2015-16 school year to ensure that every student in Alberta classrooms is funded. About 12,000 additional students are expected in schools this fall.

  • Restoring funding to previously announced reductions to school and classroom resources, such as transportation, inclusive education, and First Nations, Métis and Inuit, among other support services.

  • Maintaining funding to cover the two per cent salary increase and one per cent lump sum payment under the previously negotiated Teacher Agreement.
