Goldman Prepares For 17-18 Budget

Coming out of a set of listening sessions with the public earlier this month, Hood River County School District Superintendent Dan Goldman faces trying to put together a budget for the 2017-18 school year with an uncertain funding level from the state.  School officials have said they need the state’s K-12 funding level to reach eight-point-four billion dollars for the next two years to maintain where they are at, and most budget proposals have been closer to eight billion dollars.  Goldman says while operational changes over the past few years have helped the district be in a position to withstand this biennium, a potentially worse situation two years from now could put them on a funding cliff.  Goldman expects a long legislative session going into the summer, and the district must have its 2017-18 budget ready by the end of June.
