Funding Estimator Program for 2017/18, 2018/19 and 2019/20

Funding and Allocation makes available to boards a tool to assist in estimating their funding for the next three years.

The Estimator is in the form of an Excel workbook and can be input with a district's projected enrolments to estimate a particular year's funding.

A customized Estimator for a district will be provided on request by e-mail to Michael Lebrun.
