St. Thomas Aquinas Roman (STAR) Catholic Schools board dealt with a number of issues during their December 2019 board meeting, including approving their 2019-2020 operating budget and its decision to opt out of its current insurance to try to save money.
Fall budget update
The Board heard a fall budget update from the Secretary Treasurer and approved the proposed 2019-2020 operating budget of $51,192,296 as presented.
The Board moved to give notice of its intention to opt out of the Alberta School Boards’ Reciprocal Insurance Exchange (ASBIE) in order to pursue potentially lower cost programs.
Leaders of Tomorrow
The Board moved to support Wetaskiwin’s Leaders of Tomorrow youth volunteer recognition program with a pledge of $500.
