2020/21 School Board Budget Tracker

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

On February 27, the UCP government delivered Alberta Budget 2020 in the Alberta legislature, with claims that public education funding was being maintained at the previous year’s levels. The 2019 fall budget saw a shortfall of $126 million to education funding. 

While the 2020 budget will restore an estimated $99 million to areas that had previously been affected by cuts, public education in our province will still suffer a $27 million shortfall for the upcoming year. An in-depth analysis of Alberta Budget 2020 and the impact it will have on Alberta’s public, separate and francophone schools can be found here

On March 15, Alberta Education, under recommendations from Alberta’s Chief Medical Officer, cancelled all K–12 classes in Alberta due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The announcement contained a commitment to maintain the current funding for the school year. On March 28, the ministry announced that it was cutting funding for substitute teachers, educational assistants, transportation and support staff, with the promise it would be restored on July 1. 

To date, many school boards remain unsure what a “return to learning” will look like in September and how it will affect their capital plans.

This page is a collection of information and articles related to the education budget, from the media, government and the ATA website. It will be added to as fallout from the 2020 budget continues to affect public education.
