The Salem-Keizer School District's budget committee wants to hear from you during the first of two scheduled meetings to discuss a budget for next school year.
The budget committee will meet Tuesday, May 18 at 6 p.m. to deliberate over the district's $1.5 billion proposed budget. It would add social workers to district high schools and some middle schools, and calls for hiring more speech language pathologists.
The committee includes all seven members of the school board and seven appointed community volunteers. Committee members will consider public comment live during the meeting and in written form.
The budget committee will next meet May 24, and could vote to recommend the budget to the school board at that meeting.
To participate: The meeting will be held in-person with some committee members attending via Zoom, but the public cannot be in the meeting room due to Covid precautions. To submit a comment or sign up to call into the meeting, fill out this form before noon Monday, May 17.
