Budgets and Financial Statements

TDSB Budget

School boards are required to submit a balanced budget plan to the Ministry of Education at the end of each school year. At the TDSB, public consultations are an important part of the budget process. Each year, we post information about our financial outlook for the upcoming school year and hold ward forums and community consultations to give you an opportunity to share your priorities before any decisions are made.

School Budgets

All schools have annual budgets that are used to support classroom programs. Money provided is based on the school budget allocation model. Although a model is used to determine amounts, schools have flexibility in administering their budgets. Find your school budget.

The model is based on the following principles:

  • Provide an equitable distribution of discretionary funds to schools
  • Enhance local ability to plan for the full school year by informing schools of the discretionary funds available to them at the beginning of the school year
  • Enable flexibility for the schools to spend discretionary funds to meet the needs of their students
  • Provide a clear understanding of school budget responsibilities and a reporting process that enhances local accountability

With the exception of special education funding, the school budget allocation model is not prescriptive in the way schools can spend their funds. The model allows the central budget department to allocate resources to schools for discretionary purposes. 

Schools are encouraged to establish a school budget committee and must include school council representatives in developing their expenditure plan. This plan should be reviewed with the school’s Superintendent to ensure that the curriculum objectives for the year are supported by the school’s expenditure plan.

School budgets are calculated based on: enrolment, credit information and special education supplementary teacher allocation data. 

To supplement base allocations, additional funds are provided for certain programs that have been identified as having a higher cost.
