Spring 2012: A Message from the Superintendent

This year our district, along with others all across our state, will be experiencing another round of challenging budget reductions.

For Sherwood School District, three issues contribute to these funding challenges: flat funding from the state, future PERS rates expected to climb higher than anticipated in the next biennium, and District enrollment projected to increase much more slowly than originally anticipated.  

After much analysis, we believe our estimated reduction will need to be between $950,000 - $1,250,000 for the 2012-13 budget.  

It is my job to help lead us through the budget development process, and I am committed to doing so in a collaborative manner that honors what we believe is best for all kids.  

I invite you to participate in a number of input gathering opportunities outlined on this page. Please check back often, as we will be updating this website regularly throughout the budget development process.
