PAGE THE BUDGET AT A GLANCE The Budget: Each year the School Board adopts a budget for the upcoming school year that guides our District staff in determining how funds are spent toward instructional programs for students. The budget is initially put together by the Superintendent and District staff. Then, the Budget Committee reviews the budget and gathers feedback from the local community. After the review and possible revisions, the Budget Committee approves the budget. The School Board then adopts the budget – and this becomes the Adopted Budget for the coming school year Budget – All Funds *Restricted Funds: These accounts have specific restrictions on the money. They may only be spent as specified by either state, federal law, or by the source of the funds, such as grants and donations. Please note: Oregon follows open accounting practices so public agencies must list all funds accounts they manage as part of their budget – even if they have no say over how the money in a particular account is spent.
