The Long Range Planning Committee is a seven member citizen committee responsible for guiding the development of the Long Range Plan, that provides a rational framework for evaluating and addressing future school facility needs as the West Linn and Wilsonville areas grow. Interested community members can learn more about the Long Range Planning Committee on the district website.
The deadline to apply for the Long Range Planning Committee is July 30, 2021. These are three year positions. Current members whose position is expiring may re-apply.
