The funding freeze imposed on the Toronto District School Board has been lifted.
A freeze on money for capital projects was imposed last October after costs ran way over budget on a number of building projects.
They included a retrofit at Nelson Mandela Park Public School in Regent Park that went 7-million dollars over budget.
The Education Ministry ordered trustees to get costs under control, saying no new funds would be released until that happened.
In a statement today, Education Minister Liz Sandals said – while there have been improvements – there are still concerns about the the board’s spending.
