Government Finance Officers Association presented the West Linn-Wilsonville School District with the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award on Tuesday, Jan. 20.
The award represents a significant achievement, reflecting the commitment of the district and staff to meeting the highest principles of governmental budgeting. In order to receive the award, school districts must meet nationally recognized guidelines for effective budget presentation. Those guidelines are designed to assess how well the district's budget serves as:
a policy document
a financial plan
an operations guide
a communications device
Budget documents must be rated "proficient" in all four categories and in the 14 mandatory criteria within those categories to receive the award. The Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) advances excellence in government finance by providing best practices, professional development, resources, and practical research.
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.
