TTSD School Board to approve new budget

Additional Gain Share funds will be allocated to schools


The Tigard-Tualatin School Board is looking at adding hundreds of thousands of dollars to this year’s budget.

At its next board meeting on Aug. 25, the board is expected to approve a plan to add $435,710 in Gain Share funding to 2014-15 budget.

The money, which was announced back in July, is part of a series of donations to public schools by Washington County and the city of Hillsboro, which has been channeling some money to schools for the past two years. The funds come from state incomes taxes generated by new jobs in the county.

The money requires the district to adopt a new budget, and the school district is inviting the public to share their thoughts on how the money could best be spent.

Susan Stark Haydon, a spokeswoman with Tigard-Tualatin schools said the money would likely go to hiring teachers, though no official decision has been made.

The meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 25, at the Hibbard Administration Building, 6960 S.W. Sandburg St., in Tigard.
