MEDFORD, Ore. — Medford Schools expect to add school days, staff, and even bring back parent-teacher conferences in its latest budget plan.
Superintendent Phil Long presented the budget to the school board Tuesday night. The plan shows $113 million of revenue, which will allow the district to hire 50 full-time positions, and add five instructional days to the school calendar.
Long said the cuts made over the past few years helped the district save money, and said the district also received more funding from the state.
“As I told the budget committee last night, this is the first time in about six years I’ve been able to resent a budget that doesn’t have the word cut or reduction in it,” he said.
The district budget committee will hold a hearing on the budget on June 2nd. Families are also being encouraged to give feedback. You can view the entire budget plan here, and you can send feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org
