The school district has 30 employees who made more than $75,000 in the year ended June 30, 2012, according to the Statement of Financial Information approved by trustees at their Nov. 27 meeting. The school district is required by the provincial government to submit a Statement of Financial Information every year. It contains information about how much money was paid to elected officials, the salaries of all employees making more than $75,000, and the amounts paid to all suppliers who were paid more than $25,000. The statement is a public document and is available on the school district’s website (it is part of the Nov. 27 meeting agenda package). In other school district news:Superintendent Angus Wilson told trustees that the district’s application to install solar panels at Sk’aadgaa Naay elementary has been approved. The $50,000 project, which should reduce greenhouse gas emissions and help the school during power outages, should be complete by March 31.At G.M. Dawson Secondary, a new propane boiler is being installed due to an “emergency situation”, Mr. Wilson said. The school’s diesel boilers have been causing a lot of maintenance headaches, and although propane is more expensive than diesel, the new boiler will need less maintenance and will result in a lower carbon footprint, he said.
