The Philomath School District Budget Committee plans to meet at 6 p.m. Thursday at the school district’s office.
Committee members will discuss the 2023-24 proposed budget and accept comments from the public at the May 11 meeting. A copy of the proposed budget is available online and at the district office (8 a.m.-4 p.m.).
Anyone wishing to comment can do so by either submitting an email to Jennifer.Griffith@philomath.k12.or.us or by phoning their request to 541-929-3169 up until 4 p.m.
If needed, a second Budget Committee meeting would be held Thursday, May 25. Following the budget hearing and consideration of public testimony, the Philomath School Board ultimately must adopt a budget prior to the end of the current fiscal year on June 30.
Sitting on the committee are the five School Board members (Joe Dealy, Erin Gudge, Christopher McMorran, Karen Skinkis and Rick Wells) and five people from the community (Shelly Brown, Carol Leach, Kimberly Lopez, Craig McDaniel and Woodros Wolford with Sandi Hering as an alternate).
The Philomath School District office is located at 1620 Applegate St., with access to the meeting through a door at the back of the building. Meetings are also live-streamed on the school district’s YouTube channel.
