Budget

Oregon School Budget Law requires a local budget committee to recommend a district's budget to the school board.  The school board has final approval authority.  The committee is made up of the district's board of directors and an equal number of registered voters appointed by the board.
 
The School Board appoints citizen members to the budget committee, members serve a three-year term and receive no compensation for their services.  A budget committee member may not be a district employee.
 
FOREST GROVE SCHOOL DISTRICT SEEKS APPLICANTS FOR BUDGET COMMITTEE POSITIONS
The Forest Grove School District invites applicants to apply to fill 3 positions on the Budget Committee.  This year the District has two 3-year positions and one alternate position open.  The alternate serve a one-year term and is not a voting member of the committee; however, this is an opportunity for anyone interested in learning the budget process to become familiar with the operations of the district.  Many current budget committee members began serving as the alternate.
 
Candidates must meet the following qualifications: be a registered voter of the District, have lived in the District of one year, and cannot be a Forest Grove School District employee.
 
The Budget Committee reviews the District's budget and recommends needed changes.  The Committee conducts business in evening public meetings held between January and June.  The Budget Committee approves the Budget Document and forwards it to the School Board for adoption by the end of June.
