Magnificent Hood River, Oregon.
Award-winning Hood River County School District, located on the majestic Columbia River Gorge that lies between Oregon and Washington state, invites you to apply to be their next Chief Financial Officer. Hood River County School District is proud of its strong community partnerships and civic support which allows us to provide excellent schools and services for students. Thanks to our most recent Bond Levy which was approved by voters with a resounding 76% "yes" vote, our school buildings are more energy efficient, safer and more user-friendly, and our academic and extracurricular offerings are more expansive than what you will typically find in similar districts. We are fortunate to live and work in such a community.
We are also very proud of the stewardship of our school district finances over many years. Hood River County Schools received the Certificate of Excellence in Financial Reporting from the Association of School Business Officials (ASBO) for the last three Comprehensive Annual Financial Reports. And our district has earned an A+ Rating by the S&P Global Ratings for our general obligation bonds. As such, this is a tremendous opportunity for an able and forward-thinking financial leader to join our team. We are looking to bring on our new CFO to join an energized leadership team and continue a strong history of fiscal stewardship and financial transparency that is very much a source of community pride. More information about our awards and how we conduct business can be found here.
And, of course, Hood River is an extraordinary place to live and work. Scenically beautiful, famous for world-class recreation, our county is nestled between breathtaking Mt. Hood and the equally breathtaking Columbia River gorge. We know you will love living here. Besides our hiking, biking, paddling, kiteboarding, windsurfing, and more, we are also one of the largest pear-producing regions in the world. and you'll find many varieties of apples, cherries, blueberries, and grapes in the family-owned farms that surround our small city.
Please review our job posting here. Applications are accepted through the Hood River County School District jobsite through November 30 at 5:00pm PST. Confidential inquires to me are welcome. As always, please pass this announcement on to financial leaders of outstanding talent.
Wishing you a safe and healthy weekend.
