OCSTA Statement in Response to the Release of the 2023-24
Grants for Student Needs
TORONTO—April 17, 2023— “Today’s release of the 2023-24 Grants For Student Needs is welcomed and building upon yesterday’s $180 million investment in improving math, reading and writing skills is also appreciated. The benchmark-based funding formula for student transportation and additional resources in support of mental health and well-being, programs for Indigenous and Black students, and Special Education, align closely with the priorities as put forward by our Association.
We will consult with our member Catholic School Boards, and carefully examine the education funding information as announced. We look forward to continuing to work collaboratively with the Ministry of Education in the best interest of the 550,000 students served by Catholic School Boards across Ontario.”
