Further to previous emails on this subject (December 16th and 22nd ), attached is revised information about the One Time School and District Grants announced by the Ministry on December 9^th . This information reflects discussions with VSB education partner representatives at a meeting this morning.
Please note that the deadline for submitting Spending Plans is this Friday (January 6th ). The Board Chair has requested that the Ministry provide more time for schools to prepare these Spending Plans. At this time we have not heard back from the Ministry. Accordingly, we request that schools adhere to the January 6th deadline. We will advise schools immediately if additional time is permitted.
