The Foothills School Division has received word from the Province on funding for the coming school term.

In a statement the Division says it will receive an additional year of bridge funding, maintaining its current funding from the previous year.

The challenge, they say is for the past few years, they've been supplementing the operational budget by using surplus dollars. 

That money is almost gone meaning they'll  have to make reductions to ensure spending reflects the money they have available.

Division officials say no new dollars, the depletion of reserves, and the impact of inflation are major considerations in the budget process, which is currently underway.
