Corvallis School District Receives Award for Excellence in Accounting
Published on Monday, July 20, 2015


The Corvallis School District Business Services Department was recently awarded the highest recognition for our 2013-14 comprehensive financial report (CAFR) for the 26th consecutive year.

·         The Certificate of Achievement is the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental accounting and financial reporting, awarded by the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada.

·         This award represents a significant accomplishment by school district management. The CAFR award indicates that the Corvallis School District meets high standards including demonstrating full disclosure and transparency in financial reporting.

Director of Finance and Operations Olivia Meyers Buch credits the rigorous efforts of the District's Controller, Debbie Bell, and the Business Services Department for this award. "This award stands as a testimony to our commitment to fiscal responsibility; the honor is significant in any given year but our District's repeated recognition should make taxpayers feel secure that the District is dedicated to financial accountability and transparency," said Buch.

 

Summer Free Meal Program to start Tuesday, June 16
Published on Friday, June 12, 2015


Every year, Corvallis School District offers free meals to all children 18 and under, regardless of household income, at a variety of sites throughout the area and are open to all. Our goal is that no child goes without a meal during the summer. We also partner with a wide number of local organizations, such as Osborn Aquatic, Corvallis Parks & Rec, OSU KidSpirit, Lancaster Bridge, Corvallis and Philomath Libraries, PYAC, Lincoln Summer School and Corvallis Boys & Girls Club, among others, to offer free lunches as part of their scheduled summer activities. 

All meals meet USDA nutritional guidelines in addition to utilizing local fruits and vegetables whenever possible.

All meals must be eaten on site. Parents may eat, too (provided all children receive a meal, first), for the nominal cost of $2.00 for breakfast and $3.50 for lunch. Please bring the exact amount, as we cannot make change.

The program will start on Tuesday, June 16.  The program at Garfield will be moving to Linus Pauling for just this summer due to renovation projects. We will be serving in back in the kitchen area.


See the Summer Meal Program webpage for a list of sites and serving times, as well as menus.

Olivia Buch will join the Corvallis School District as the new Director of Finance and Operations on July 1, 2015. An extensive search culminated with interviewing top candidates earlier this week with Buch emerging as the one finalist. Superintendent Dr. Erin Prince and her executive team are confident that Buch is the right person for 509J.  Prince shared “Olivia Buch comes to Corvallis with incredibly positive references and a strong track record in school district finance. She is energetic, confident and eager to work with our team.”

Olivia Buch has a long history of business and finance work within the public sector. After receiving her Bachelor of Arts in accounting from Linfield College, she worked as a state auditor for the Oregon Secretary of State Audits Division for two years. She then was hired as the financial analyst, in the Fern Ridge School District, which is located just outside of Eugene with approximately 1,500 students. Buch was promoted to the district’s Business Manager after just one year and has held the position for the last ten years. She is also a certified government financial manager and certified school business manager.
