2021 Budget Committee Openings

Community  /  News

The David Douglas School District has two openings for its 2021 Budget Committee. The District is seeking District residents to fill the positions.

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

The function of the Budget Committee is to approve a budget for the next 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 2021 Budget Committee is scheduled to meet at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, April 26, 2021. Additional meetings, if necessary, have been scheduled for April 29, May 3 and May 6. The School Board must adopt the 2021-22 budget by June 30, 2021.

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 Friday, Sept. 18. It should include educational and/or professional background information, and/or other information indicating qualifications for serving. Applicants must also include their home address.

Send a letter to: Superintendent’s Office, David Douglas School District, 11300 NE Halsey St., Portland, OR 97220.
