Welcome to Rainy River District


2022-23 Budget

At the June 20, 2022 Special Board Meeting, the Rainy River District School Board approved the 2022-2023 balanced budget of $58,365,458. 

As identified during budget consultations, the 2022-2023 budget contains increased support for mental health professional services in the schools, as well as increased support for Autism Support Workers and the continuation of Behavioral Therapists for all elementary schools. Support for Bullying Prevention and Intervention, through dedicated funding for each school, is also within the budget, along with continued funding for the work of our Equity Committee to create culturally responsive, identity-affirming learning environments.  

As well, in 2022-23, we continue our focus on building capacity in literacy instruction and interventions, with funding allocated for professional development through the reintroduction of Student Achievement Teachers (SATs) at some of our elementary schools, as well as continued support of our Reading Recovery Program and increased funding for our Speech Language Program. Support for the Ojibwe Language Strategy, Anishinaabemodaa, and expansion of Ojibwe language instruction are included, as well as funding to support our continued work to embed First Nation, Métis and Inuit history, culture and perspectives across the curriculum. 

Also confirmed within this budget is increased support for field trips and secondary athletic excursions in light of rising fuel costs, an investment in school nutrition funding, support for ongoing training and professional development for school staff, and continued support for the Techways program, a program that provides Grade 7 and 8 students with hands on, experiential learning, with an emphasis on the skilled trades. 

The budget process begins in January of each year with the development of school enrolment projections, which form the basis of the budget. Throughout the year, programs are assessed, and planning for the following year occurs, with student achievement and well-being as the primary goals as supported through the Board’s Strategic Plan. This year, budgets were also reviewed considering the pandemic and its impact on our students. 

Input on the 2022-2023 budget was sought from school councils, Union partners, Board advisory committees, and Student Senate representatives and reflects the input received.

How Do I Direct My Tax Support

Make sure your tax support designation is English Public. When you designate yourself as an English Public school support, you help foster a strong political voice through your elective representative (Trustee).

To verify that you are registered as an English Public school supporter:
- check the assessment section of your Tax Bill or Property Assessment Notice
- check your Voter Information Card

The Application for Direction of School Support form enables any person to apply to have their school support included or revised on the assessment roll by sending the completed form to the Regional Assessment Commissioner. The collection of the information on the form is authorized under the Assessment Act, and any personal information is confidential and protected under the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act.

The information will be used to direct your school taxes; to prepare voters' lists for municipal and school board elections; to help with municipal and school board planning.
