Mannix noted that the district's unions have stepped up before when the school was in times of need.
The Administrators and Teachers associations, for example, agreed to pay freezes in previous years, saving the district more than $300,000.
And after watching the teachers and support staff make the health-insurance move in January, Mannix said, the administrators decided to follow suit.
While BCSD's financial outlook has improved over the past year, he added, the group still recognized that the switch was a good thing to do for the school and its students.
“We’ve got great people here," the superintendent said.
