North Kitsap School District administration is seeking residents of the north end of Kitsap to apply to a new advisory committee.

The Community Financial Advisory Committee will focus its efforts on long-range financial items and strategies that will help lead to recommendations to the school board.

Committee task and requirements will include:

  • Serving in an advisory role regarding long-range district financial items
  • Provide community perspective to the district in planning long-range financial strategies
  • Collaborate with the director of finance, business and operations in developing fiscal recommendations
  • Act as liaison to the community and facilitate at public town meetings
  • Review levy and bond election scenarios and provide recommendations

Committee members must reside within the district, become educated in school finance, and maintain a broad focus for the commitment of identifying funding to meet the needs of students.

Applications can be found here.
