The West Linn-Wilsonville School Board held a virtual meeting on Monday, June 29. The following are highlights from that meeting. Important district-wide updates are also included in this newsletter

Board Adopts Approved Budget for 2020-21 School Year

The West Linn-Wilsonville School Board unanimously approved and adopted the proposed budget during the June 29 meeting.

The proposed budget reflects an estimated cost increase to PERS (Public Employee Retirement System) of $3.5 million. It also reflects an unexpected loss in revenue of $7.5 million for the 2020-21 school year due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the subsequent Oregon Economic Revenue Forecast. Read the full budget message and approved budget document on the district website.

Superintendent Dr. Kathy Ludwig updated the Board regarding reopening plans and the framework for the 2020-21 school year. To learn more about the framework for reopening schools in 2020-21, including the two options that families will have to choose from, please visit the district website. The website will continue to be updated throughout the summer and updates will be provided to the community as new information is available.
