HR Schools Watching Legislative Funding Decisions

The Hood River County School District is starting to look toward budgeting for the 2023-24 academic year, and that means keeping an eye on education funding decisions to be made by the Oregon Legislature this session.  District Superintendent Rich Polkinghorn says early projections have K-12 funding increasing by two percent this biennium, which he says would be short of what is needed to maintain current service levels.  Polkinghorn says they will start budget work in earnest over the next month.  He points out the district’s local option levy has helped the district weather uncertainties at the state level, but that will expire in June, and the district will be going to voters to renew it.
