AVRCE 2019 2020 Operating Budget Highlights

We want to give students tools and support to be successful. This year, the overall budget for education in the province increased by $44 million. This is the sixth year in a row that the overall education budget has increased, with more resources and more people in the system.

AVRCE’s Parent Navigator, Tammy Ring, helps guide families to supports and services. As part of the Student Services team, she works collaboratively with schools, SchoolsPlus and community agencies to connect families with services available in education, justice, health, community services, and more.
