AGENDA ITEM:  #14                                          AGENDA TITLE: Joint Principles

 

ITEM PREPARED BY: Stuber                                            ITEM REQUESTED BY: Commissioner Morrison

 

SUMMARY: Forest receipts have provided a long stream of revenue to Oregon

schools.  Statutory changes in the mid 90s created a void in that revenue.

In 1999 an act of Congress provided relief to those states aversely effected

by the statutes.  An organization entitled: National Forest Counties and

Schools Coalition (NFCSC) pressured Congress for the relief.  The relief act

will sunset soon.  An effort chaired locally by County Commissioner Morrison

is underway by NFCSC to restore the relief.  Morrison has asked the Creswell

School Board to sign a Statement of Support.

 

SUPERINTENDENT'S ADVICE: Oregon received a very healthy portion of the

relief available nationwide.  Lane County similarly received one of the

largest allotments, if not the largest allotment made available in the

state, and is therefore worth the effort.  Creswell Schools reported

$163,000 in federal forest fees.  Sample resolution: “We support the NFCSC

in supporting the passage of appropriate enabling legislation during this

session of Congress to honor the obligations and commitments by the federal

government to local communities and schools in forested regions of the

United States.

AGENDA ITEM:     # 12                      AGENDA TITLE: Budget Committee

 

ITEM PREPARED BY: Stuber             ITEM REQUESTED BY: Resignation

 

SUMMARY:  The Budget Committee’s qualified electors serve terms concurrent with a designated position on the School Board.  Three Board positions expire in 2005: Ehrich, Dersham, and Robertson.  Dersham's and Robertson's Budget Committee-elector positions do not need to be reappointed until July 2005 so they remain for this year’s budget process.  However one of the electors, Sue Bowers who coincidentally serves in the Ehrich position, is now a District employee (which disqualifies her to be a Budget Committee  member).  Ergo, the Board needs to begin the process of replacing the qualified elector for the Ehrich position.

 

SUPERINTENDENT'S ADVICE: 

                              

 

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ATTACHED: No.
