Facilities/Bond Oversight Committee
Board Liaison: Jay Conroy
One board member is the liaison to a 7-person committee. The Bond Oversight Committee will actively monitor the Corvallis School District bond program to ensure bond revenues are used only for the purposes consistent with the voter-approved 2018 bond measure and consistent with state law.
The committee will meet quarterly to review reports produced by the district each year the bond proceeds are spent in order to assess general compliance with the bond measure approved by voters. View the Bond Oversight Committee page.
Special Education Advisory Committee
Board Liaison: Tina Baker
District administrators work collaboratively with Special Education Advisory Committee (SEAC) parent leaders to develop agendas and topics for discussion. SEAC includes parents of students receiving special education services, who provide information about the needs of students and families, and ways to improve services for students; all parents of students receiving special education services are welcome to “sit at the table” and participate in committee meetings. The parents self-select their chair and secretary. District staff ultimately make any decisions; there is no involvement by the full board as it is an operational matter.
Technology Advisory Committee
Board Liaison: tba
This committee advises the technology director on technology related matters that impact students, staff and families. Committee members serve as informal ambassadors for the district’s technology initiatives. They share and discuss best practices in instructional, administrative, and operational technology, as well as future trends in technology. District staff ultimately make any decisions; there is no involvement by the school board as this is an operational matter.
Superintendent Task Forces
Boundary Review Task Force
Board Liaison: Sarah Finger McDonald
This task force, facilitated by a FLO Analytics consultant, works to develop a recommendation to the superintendent on the preferred boundary adjustment scenario. Task force members review, question, and discuss one or more draft boundary adjustment scenarios prepared by district staff and consultants to identify implementation/policy issues, flaws, unforeseen consequences, and implications for the 2018 bond program. They review and consider community input from open house events, and reach a consensus as a task force on a preferred boundary adjustment scenario. After this task force informs the superintendent of their recommendation, the superintended will present a revised boundary policy and accompanying administrative regulation to the School Board for adoption, resulting in boundary area adjustments that will take effect in the 2020-2021 school year. View the Boundary Review Task Force page.
Superintendent Work Groups
District Finance Work Group
Board Liaison: Vincent Adams
Two board members meet occasionally with the finance and operations director and other budget staff to review complex financial information that will be shared with and/or considered by the full board. It’s a way for the board to have some “educated” members, who have asked their questions or those they believe will likely be asked by more board members, and be prepared to help their fellow board members understand what is before them. This work group also reviews applications for the citizen members of the budget committee and then the finance director submits a recommendation to the full board.
