There are two new additions to 4J's budget committee. Juan Carlos Valle and Maya Rabasa were selected by the Eugene School Board to serve three year terms.
Valle and Rabasa were selected from a pool of 12 candidates who were interviewed for the openings.
The committee examines the annual budget proposal to ensure the district is planning to spend money to achieve its goals. It reviews the proposed district budget, hears comments from community members and approves the budget total for the school board to consider for adoption. Positions on the committee are non-partisan and unpaid.
