Budget survey seeking comments until Friday

Have something to say about the proposed $4 million in cuts to Tigard-Tualatin School District’s budget? You have until this Friday to speak your mind.

The district is asking community members to take a quick survey on the district's website through Friday, April 19.

Interim superintendent Roger Rada laid out the proposed cuts last week, including layoffs of teachers and administrators, larger class sizes and fewer extracurricular activities for students.

In total, the equivalent of 45 positions would be cut from the administration and the district’s schools, and programs such as Outdoor School, and fine arts classes would be cut, among others.

The survey asks for feedback from the cuts at each school level, and at the district office, as well as proposed cuts to special education and reductions in ELL, which would see reduced assistant support.

The survey is available on the district’s website, ttsdschools.org.

The surveys will be used in preparation of drafting the district’s final budget, which it will submit to the budget committee next month.

The first Budget Committee meeting is set for Wednesday, May 8, at Twality Middle School, 14650 S.W. 97th Ave., in Tigard.
