Applicants must live and be registered to vote in the District, and not be an officer, agent or employee of the District. Positions are non-partisan, unpaid, and are not connected to any specific region within the district. Members with expired terms may request reappointment.

To apply, submit a letter of interest and resume via email to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, October 16, 2020.

An extension of the financial planning process, the annual budget process matches available financial, material, and human resources to educational programs and services for students.
The first edition of the district's Multi-Year Strategic Financial Plan is a product of our work toward the implementation of the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) Best Practices in School Budgeting. This plan will serve to guide our annual budgeting process to ensure that our instructional priorities are being funded and any budget gaps are closed. We will continue to update this plan each year on a rolling basis, evaluating activities of the prior year and adding one year to the plan.
Finance staff provide regular updates to the school board regarding the district's financial position. Reports are also provided to the Oregon Department of Education and other agencies as required. An independent audit is conducted annually and published as the district's Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR).
