The West Linn-Wilsonville Budget Committee unanimously approved the proposed 2021-22 Budget during their Budget Committee Meeting on Monday, May 17.
Budget Committee members spent the first part of May analyzing the proposed budget, submitting questions and comments to the District's Business Office ahead of the May 17 meeting. Budget Committee members asked follow-up questions during the May 17 meeting during deliberation before approving the proposed 2021-22 Budget.
The 2021-22 Budget was created based on a $9.3 billion State School Fund biennium. While an increase from the past biennium, it is not enough to accommodate "roll up" costs to maintain current programs and personnel, including payroll increases, increases in PACE insurance due to COVID-19 risks, and increases to PERS (Public Employee Retirement System). Interested community members can review the proposed budget and learn more about the budget landscape by watching the District's 2021-22 Budget Information Video.
The approved budget now goes to the School Board for formal adoption at the June 7 School Board Meeting.

West Linn High School Student Hannah Tsai recently won the 5th Congressional District High School Art Competition. Hannah's painting "Goldfish" was one of dozens of submissions. Hannah's first place finish means that the painting will hang in the tunnel hallway of the United States Capitol where members of Congress travel to cast votes. Congressman Kurt Shrader announced the achievement earlier this week.
Welcome to the West Linn-Wilsonville School District!
Our incredible students, talented staff, supportive and dedicated community make this a tremendous place in which to learn and lead.
Our school district guides us with a compelling vision question, “How do we create learning communities for the greatest thinkers and most thoughtful people…for the world?”
This question challenges us to continually hone our practices and skills in creating exceptional learning environments for our students. The question also challenges us to implement practices that help our students grow as thoughtful citizens and compassionate humanitarians. Together, the vision question prompts us to continually engage our students’ minds and hearts. As the late poet, Maya Angelou declares, “Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.”
We pledge to do our best when working with the children entrusted in our care. This year holds great promise, great opportunities and great accomplishments for each of them.
