Every spring, the OCDSB is required to finalize our annual budget for the next school year. This plan outlines how funds will be spent to support students across the district.

The OCDSB serves roughly 75,000 students in 145 schools. We employ more than 10,000 people and have an annual budget of approximately $1 billion. 

An education budget is much more than a fiscal spreadsheet. It’s an action plan outlining important investments to help all students reach their full potential. Behind the numbers, you will find:

  • Educational assistants there for learners with complex needs
  • New computers and technology to spark a love of STEM
  • Accessibility upgrades, roof repairs, new water fountains and plumbing
  • Mental health professionals, guidance councilors and wellness experts to support the well-being of students and staff
  • Literacy training and new learning programs to boost reading skills

Below are the answers to some general questions about the budget. Where money comes from, where it is spent, and how you can share your thoughts.
