In an effort to increase communication with the public, staff and school board, and to provide for greater citizen involvement, Hood River County School District Supt. Dan Goldman has announced open community positions for a finance advisory committee for the district.
The Hood River County School District Board of Directors recently adopted policy establishing the finance advisory committee to improve the education of the students by monitoring financial issues and trends facing the district.
Recommendations made by the committee will be given careful consideration by the board, but such recommendations will not relieve the board of its legal responsibility to make final decisions about such matters.
If you are a resident of Hood River County, you are invited to submit an application for consideration. Application forms can be found on the districts website at www.hoodriver.k12.or.us or can be picked up at the district office. Upon completion of the prospective finance advisory committee member application form, return it to: Office of the Superintendent, Hood River County School District, 1011 Eugene St., Hood River, OR 97031 no later than Aug. 26.
The finance advisory committee will meet the third Wednesday of each month at 4 p.m. at the District offices: 1011 Eugene St. Questions should be directed to Chief Financial Officer Saundra Buchanan at 541-387-5010 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
