Join the Budget Committee
Salem-Keizer Public Schools is seeking three community members to serve on the district budget committee. Each appointee will serve a three-year term ending June 30, 2026.
About the Budget Committee
The budget committee is a 14-member group consisting of the Salem-Keizer School Board and seven appointed volunteer community members. The committee is an advisory group established by statute to make budgetary recommendations to the school board. Budget committee appointees serve three-year terms and may apply for additional service.
The budget committee conducts public meetings and reviews the budget proposed by the superintendent. Community members are encouraged to attend these meetings and provide comments.
Local budget law requires that the budget committee hold at least one meeting for the following purpose:
- Receiving the budget message and budget document from the superintendent
- Providing community members with an opportunity to ask questions about and comment on the budget
The district provides public notice of meeting(s) in the Salem Statesman Journal and on this site. The budget message is usually delivered by the superintendent in mid-April, and public hearings are usually held in May.
For information on upcoming meeting dates, email Ashley Stovin, Budget Committee Secretary, or call 503-399-3001.
