Financial planning at Kenora Catholic is a bit trickier this year. Alison Smith is the superintendent of financial services for the school board.
"It's hard to move forward with any planning and PD (professional development) for people, because a lot of the funding grants we do get support those initiatives for teachers in the classroom," she said.
Still, the board says their adjusting to the cash flow issue, so it won't impact students.
"I wouldn't say there's an impact on the classroom, because all the teachers are in the classroom. It's just that the planning for what 2018-2019 is going to look like has slowed down a little bit," Smith added.
The Ontario's new finance minister is expected to make his first comments on the province's financial situation Friday.
