Lynn Little, director of education for the South East Cornerstone Public School Division, said she hopes to see a funding increase after budget cuts in recent years.

She said about $2.5 million additional dollars are needed each year in order for the school division to maintain a status quo.
Little said they also need teachers and support staff, which will require funding.
