Our goal is to provide each SCSBC member school with a comprehensive report of their financial and staffing benchmarks and how each school compares with similar SCSBC schools. We have worked hard to ensure that every school’s individual information is protected and remains confidential. Information will only be released as averages of several schools, for example, average of schools with greater than 850 students, or K-12 schools with less than 150 students. The ability for your school to have comparison data of the similar types of schools will highlight areas for further research and discussion during the school’s budget process. It is just one more tool that SCSBC trusts will serve our members schools and their leadership teams.
Data will be collected in the first semester and individualized reports will be sent to schools in February for those schools that choose to participate. The report will provide benchmarks and comparison data in the followings areas:
• Operating Revenue and Enrolment
• Operating Expenditure
• Assets and Debt
• Staffing Efficiency
• Special Needs Department
• Marketing and Development
• International Department
• Preschool Department

Tracey brings a varied background of experience to her role with SCSBC schools – as a former student, a parent, a board treasurer, and a school business manager – which helps her consider issues from different perspectives and serves as a testament to her long standing commitment to Christian education.
Tracey graduated from the University of BC with a Bachelor of Commerce and began her career in a large public accounting firm, specializing in audits of not-for-profit organizations, local government and public utilities. She obtained her Chartered Accountant designation in 1993. While taking some time off to raise children, she continued to serve on the boards of various not-for-profit organizations, including John Knox Christian School in Burnaby. That involvement led to her taking on the role of Business Manager at John Knox from 2014 to 2018.
As SCSBC’s Director of Finance, Tracey’s responsibilities include consulting with schools on financial management issues, producing benchmarking reports for member schools, administering financial health reviews, providing support for the SCSBC School Budget Template, reviewing schools’ use of the SCSBC Framework for the Issuance of Charitable Tax Receipts, and facilitating conferences and discussion groups for school business personnel.
