Osseo Area Schools is recruiting applicants for five open seats on the district’s FISCAL Advisory team.

The volunteer FISCAL Advisory Team helps shape the future for students, families and the community by providing input and feedback on district financial issues. Members of the advisory team must have strong financial skills. The district seeks multiple perspectives through broad geographic representation and racial diversity of team members.

Current FISCAL member Irene Barbour offered this perspective about serving on the team:  “Anyone that has considered ‘schools should run more like a business,’ can benefit in participating in the FISCAL team. There are many financial parallels to other organizations, and also many aspects that are unique to education. I am gaining confidence that important financial items are regularly assessed and managed wisely.”

Meetings will take place from 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm on November 19 and December 10, 2015, and January 21 and March 17, 2016. All meetings are held at the Educational Service Center in Maple Grove.

Update October 9, 2015: The application deadline has passed and applications are no longer being accepted.
