BSD Community Committees
Many committees and task forces assist the District in decision-making about maintenance, finance, cost containment, facilities planning, and engagement. Committee members have expertise in related areas, and the District enlists their help in reviewing data, developing plans, and making recommendations. The valuable insight provided by these individuals has been crucial to the sound decisions made by the Board and staff.
District Finance Committee
The purpose of the District Finance Committee is to ensure that taxpayer funds are used as effectively and efficiently as possible by reviewing the financial practices of the District and reporting findings and recommendations for improvement to the Board of Education. Five independent citizen members with training and expertise in the analysis, oversight, and management of budgets are appointed to the committee, as well as one member of the Board of Education and one building principal. The committee meets on the second Wednesday of each month at 5 p.m.
