HR Schools Adopt Budget

The Hood River County School District Board adopted a budget for the 2017-18 school year, and also discussed what may still happen in the Oregon Legislature.  Superintendent Dan Goldman says the latest estimate from Salem has 400 million dollars more going into the state school fund than the number the district used to develop the budget.  But there are still a number of unknowns, so Goldman says the board felt they needed to more forward and the district will adjust as they learn more from the Legislature.  He adds the first priority is to maintain as much staff as possible, and he says they have been able to do that through attrition rather than layoffs.  If the Legislature can move the state school fund number up another 200 million dollars, Goldman says the district can avoid spending reserve funds, which is currently called for in the district budget.
