Funds from the sale of the Nicola Lake School will be used to address immediate needs.
The former school, and property adjacent to Nicola Lake was sold over the summer for $400,000.
Minus expenses, Superintendent Stephen McNiven says the district will now have roughly $383,000 to use where it sees fit.
"Probably more around meeting needs immediately from a capital prospective, and not applying those dollars to programs and services. And, not applying those dollars to programs and services because its just not sustainable. So, we would look at one-time items that will make a difference for our students."
The Nicola Lake School was originally put up for sale in September of 2017, at an asking price of $450,000.

Record number classes registered for at NVIT.
President Ken Tourand says the 5,079 course registrants in 2018 is up from the previous record of 4,832 set in 2017.
In Merritt, Tourand says both the Immediate Entry Secondary School Transition Bursary, and brand-new Centre of Excellence and Sustainability have been huge factors in the registration bump to start the year.
"It's kind of overall. It's the product of everything we have been doing the last 10-years. In terms of getting our name out, providing quality education, and then having our grads go out and be successful."
Tourand says the numbers in Merritt this fall are almost 10% higher than 2017.
