The Thames Valley District School Board (TVDSB) released its $1.2 billion preliminary budget for the 2024-2025 school year.

Linda Nicholls, associate director of education with the TVDSB said the most important takeaway from the 2024-2025 budget is there will be no job loss for any permanent employee of Thames Valley.
