School Districts happy to have restored funding


As the new school year begins, district administrators are relieved their funding was restored.  It was announced by the PC government in the spring that education would take a massive cut in funding.  The NDP government however reversed those cuts following the election.  For Medicine Hat School District 76 that meant nearly $2.4 million was restored to their operational budget for this school year.  Medicine Hat Catholic was facing just over $800,000 in cuts but saw that returned while the Prairie Rose School Division breathed a sigh of relief when nearly $1.5 million was returned to their budget.  Officials with each district all said that they were pleased the funding was restored to the education system.
