Prepare for some belt tightening in Kootenay Lake School District No. 8 for next year.
The superintendent of schools, Jeff Jones, said the current provincial grant the school district is looking at — on a preliminary basis — isn’t as “hopeful” for next year as it could be.
He pointed to an increase in student enrollment — the second straight for SD8 — as not being reflected in the $50-million budget the school district currently deals with.
