Meet with State Representatives

Juli Di Chiro reviewed the PowerPoint presentation that the District is showing all sites to give an overview of K-12 funding in the State of Oregon, as well as a proposal for improving funding in the future.  She also reviewed the four scenarios that are being reviewed with all staff.  Jill Turner presented a proposed 2011-12 draft budget that is based on flat funding from the current school year.  Even if the district reduces spending in all categories and spends no additional money on salaries or benefits for next year, there is still a $1.3 million shortfall. 

After the presentation, Representative Buckley and Senator Bates discussed their views over the upcoming session.  They agreed that flat funding is probably the more realist aspect from the state.  They expressed appreciation that the District is showing no increases in salaries or benefits and yet still faces a $1.3 million shortfall.  They will do whatever they can to try to assist the district.



There being no further business, the meeting adjourned at 8:30 p.m.

Respectfully submitted by Jeanne Peterson, Administrative Assistant.
