2016/17 budget

On Feb. 21, the Langley board of education approved a $212 million amended 2016-2017 budget.

The district will spend $159.6 million on instruction. School District secretary-treasurer David Green explained during the Feb. 21 meeting that many teachers in Langley have retired and new ones have been hired.

In late May, the school district confirmed that it is in the process of hiring more than 100 full-time teachers for the coming school year.
