District 97 Seeking New Member for FORC Committee

District 97 is seeking a dedicated individual from the community who is interested in taking an active role in shaping the future of our schools by applying to serve in a voluntary capacity on our Finance Oversight and Review Committee (FORC).


FORC, which meets on a monthly basis during the school year, provides the Board of Education and administration with ongoing expertise, oversight and guidance on the district’s fiscal operations. The committee also reviews the district’s financial performance, which includes activities such as monitoring budget projections in comparison to actual experience, examining rolling five-year projections, and reviewing and commenting on investments, budget development and the district’s annual audit.


People can access additional information about FORC by visiting http://www.op97.org/boe/forc

The board is currently looking to fill one opening on FORC. People who would like to be considered for membership are asked to please submit a brief statement that answers the following two questions:

 

  • Why do you want to serve on the committee?
  • What role can you play in advising or supporting the board on the activities described above (e.g., providing oversight and guidance on the district’s fiscal operations, monitoring budget projections in comparison to actual experience, examining rolling five-year projections, and reviewing and commenting on investments, budget development and the district’s annual audit)?
     

If you would like to submit a statement, or you need additional information about the committee, please contact Lou Anne Johannesson by e-mailing [email protected]org
