McMinnville School District 40 Position 2

Special districts in Oregon are formed to govern specific resources. Examples are people’s utility districts, library districts, sewer districts, irrigation districts, ports and cemetery districts. Some districts get revenue only from taxes. Others, such as water districts, get revenue from ratepayers. Others may combine the two sources. Each district is governed by a board of directors which is responsible for the operation of the district and its financial accountability.

There truly is an increased disparity. I believe teachers can do their best work to individualize lessons if they have smaller classes. Students learn more when they are in smaller groups getting more attention and they have the opportunity to participate. Instructional aides can also work with smaller groups of students to help them catch up. Schools need to have strong special education and ESL programs with quality staff to create individual plans for those students. Fall 2021 will need a lot of review for all students as everyone acclimates to being back in school together. All humans have different capabilities regardless of grade level. While creating equity and providing support for all students to reach their potential is important, we must also remember gifted students who should be offered advanced learning opportunities.
Families have always had access to view online gradebooks, attend parent-teacher conferences, and contact teachers. Now that we've seen how conferences can work through zoom that should continue to be an option for busy working parents. As schools make decisions, parents should still be able to complete surveys to vote for the best option for their child. Parents have been much more involved this year but also overwhelmed. Using a streamline communication such as peachjar or google classroom can make things easier. Schools should also continue to translate as much as possible to Spanish, and provide trainings so parents can learn to access all digital programs.
There has been enough Covid relief money to provide updates for technology, cleaning, barriers, and covid related needs. Spending priorities have been more academic as we've had fewer sports, clubs, and transportation. Going forward, schools should invest thoughtfully in adequate mental health staff to help children, many whom have experienced trauma, loss of family members, and social anxiety. Many teachers have found great online curricula or subscriptions that can individualize lessons for students and those should continue to be funded by schools.
