Grants for Student Needs projections for the 2023–24 school year
Find tables containing projected board-by-board allocations of the Grants for Student Needs (GSN) including other related information for the 2023–24 school year. The funding projections have been prepared by the Ministry of Education and are based on enrolment and other data provided by school boards.
The tables also contain board-by-board allocations from prior years.
The Technical paper 2023–24 contains:
- an overview of the grant formulas
- the details of the grant formulas
- other criteria for education funding through the Grants for Student Needs (GSN)
These are used to help calculate school boards’ 2023–24 allocations for budgeting and financial reporting purposes.
Addendum to the 2023-24 technical paper: education funding adaptations for isolate board school authorities
In Ontario, there are four isolate board school authorities which require modified funding formulas due to their unique circumstances, including the remoteness of their locations and that each isolate board operates only one school. These isolate boards are:
- James Bay Lowlands Secondary School Board (SSB)
- Moose Factory Island District School Area Board (DSAB)
- Moosonee District School Area Board (DSAB)
- Penetanguishene Protestant Separate School Board (PSSB)
Funding for the four isolate boards follows the same methodology as outlined in the technical paper with the specific modifications that are outlined in this addendum.
