Winnipeg School Division homeowners are looking at a 6.6 percent increase in education property taxes.
That’s $72 on an average home assessed at a value of $149,000, finance chair Cathy Collins said this afternoon.
The draft budget is "status quo, pretty much," Collins said. "We’re just trying to preserve what we had."
Collins said that WSD qualified for only a 0.6 per cent increase in provincial operating grants.
The division has found $2.6 million in savings in administration, and its on-line and phone systems, but also wants to improve its math resources for students.
