The budget is a financial plan that estimates the cost to operate district schools and programs for a fiscal year. The district prepares its annual budget in accordance with provisions of Oregon Local Budget Law (ORS 294), which provides standard procedures for the preparation, presentation, administration and appraisal of budgets. The law mandates public involvement in budget preparation and public exposure of proposed programs. The law also requires that the budget be balanced, that is, projected resources must equal projected requirements in each fund.
Once a proposed budget is developed, the Superintendent presents it and the budget message to the Budget Committee, which then reviews the proposed budget and receives public comment. The Budget Committee recommends revisions to the budget if needed and approves a budget for School Board adoption. The first Budget Committee meeting to review the proposed budget is generally held in May, unless an earlier meeting is required to address special circumstances. Notice of the meeting is published in the local newspaper and on the District’s website.
