Budget Committee Opening

Community  /  News

The David Douglas School District has an opening for its 2019 Budget Committee. The District is seeking a District resident to fill the position.

The Budget Committee is made up of 14 members. Seven members are the current School Board members, while the remaining seven, including the vacant position, are citizens appointed by the School Board.

The function of the Budget Committee is to approve a budget for the coming school year. The Budget Committee does not determine programs, but only levels of spending. Once the Budget Committee approves a budget, the School Board will make the final adoption.

Budget Committee members are appointed for a 3-year term. They must be residents of the David Douglas School District and registered voters.

The 2019 Budget Committee is scheduled to meet on Monday, April 29, 2019. Additional meetings, if necessary, have been scheduled for April 30, May 6 and May 7. The School Board must adopt the 2019-20 budget by June 30.

People interested in serving as a David Douglas School District Budget Committee member should submit a letter or email of interest no later than the end of business day on Monday, Feb. 25. It should include educational and/or professional background information, and/or other information indicating qualifications for serving. Applicants must also include their home address.
