Parent Fundraising - How the Globe and Mail Got it Wrong (Part 3)

by Marshall Leslie (the owner of this blog).

The finance committee of the Ontario Association of School Business Officials (OASBO) published its first "Guidelines For School Generated Funds" in 2003, with revisions in 2009 and 2014. (Please click on the headline to access the Guidelines). It is an extensive and detailed examination of the issue for use by parents, teachers, and administrators. If you are a parent (or a Globe and Mail education reporter) please read it. Among other things, it describes the eight (8) different categories of school generated funds - only one of which is parent fundraising - that account for these uses and which are a source of confusion to so many.

Toronto and Area Information Updates

Many Toronto schools are badly in need of energy retrofit, major maintenance and facility renewal. In some school communities additions are required and sometimes a new building. Currently, these projects are undertaken under the Province of Ontario's "Good Places to Learn" programme, in partnerships or special purpose organizations like the Toronto Lands Corporation.
