The Government of Saskatchewan announced a significant investment for its school divisions in a release last Thursday. 

As prices of fuel and insurance on the rise, this extra funding is in efforts to help cover expenses so the classroom resources aren't compromised.

According to the release, the one-time investment is a total of $20 million, divided between districts.

The province also announced a new $7 million fund to allow school divisions to hire more educational assistants for the 2022-23 school year. 

With these investments, the Ministry of Education announced that Saskatchewan is breaking its record for school operating funding the upcoming school year, exceeding $2 billion for the first time in the province's history.

Chinook School Division will receive $1.21 million and said they won't be able to comment on this significant investment until they have reviewed and discussed it, which is expected to be late August.

Holy Trinity School District will also receive $176,600.
