Budget Committee

The 4J Budget Committee reviews the proposed budget, listens to comments from community members, and then approves the budget total to forward to the school board for adoption. The committee reviews the proposal to ensure that the district is planning to spend money in furtherance of expressly stated district goals.

The committee is made up of the district’s 7-member board of directors and an equal number of district residents appointed by the board. Members of the budget committee are appointed by open vote of the school board as openings occur. They serve for three-year terms and receive no compensation for their services. Budget committee members must reside within school district boundaries, must be registered to vote, and may not be district employees.

 


Meetings

The committee typically meets once in January and twice in May. Additional meetings may be scheduled based on the information needs of the Budget Committee.

Budget committee meeting information and materials are posted online at BoardBook.

The budget committee encourages public participation and allows time at each meeting for public testimony.
