Quick Facts: Ontario Schools, 2010–11

The following information about Ontario’s publicly funded elementary and secondary schools is based on data reported by schools, school boards, and school authorities. Unless otherwise specified, data for hospital programs and Provincial Schools; care, treatment, and correctional facilities; continuing education; and private schools is not included.

Owing to a change in data collection methods, data for 2006–07 and subsequent years is not strictly comparable to data for years prior to 2006–07.

* In 2009–10, school boards adopted accounting policy changes, introduced by the Public Sector Accounting Board, in the reporting of tangible capital assets, amortization, and consolidation of fund accounts, as well as the format in which financial data were to be presented in school boards’ financial statements. In this table, for purposes of comparison, the school board data for 2008–09 is also presented in the format adopted in 2009–10, using restated comparative figures from the district school boards’ 2009–10 financial statements. (Owing to the amalgamation of some school authorities with district school boards in 2009–10, comparative figures for 2008–09 were not available for the amalgamated school authorities.)

** An accounting policy change introduced in 2010–11 by the Public Sector Accounting Board (standard PS 3410) required school boards to put revenues previously recognized as being related to the net book value of capital assets acquired, into deferred capital contributions (DCC). As a result of the transfer from accumulated surplus/deficit to DCC, the accumulated surplus/deficit opening amount for district school boards for 2010–11 is much lower than the closing amount for 2009–10.
