Newberg School District 29J Zone 1

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. ( https://www.oregonlaws.org/ors/198.010 ) Qualifications: Candidate must be a registered voter and a resident of the district for 1 year. Employees of the district are not eligible unless employed as a substitute driver. ORS 332.016 and 332.018(2)Salary: A member of the governing body of a district may receive an amount not to exceed $50 for each day or portion thereof as compensation for services performed as a member of the governing body.

Información Biográfica

Even before COVID and the transition to online learning, school districts struggled with disparities in academic achievement. Educators fear even greater gaps upon their return to classrooms. What strategies will you consider to address these increased disparities?

COVID has shown us the importance of family support in facilitating students’ education. How will you build on this understanding to increase the role of parents in decision making and promote parental involvement in schools?

What is the impact of the pandemic on school budgets and spending priorities? How do you propose meeting these new challenges?

Los distritos escolares ya tenían dificultades con las disparidades en el desempeño académico, inclusive antes del COVID y de la transición al aprendizaje por internet. Los educadores temen que aparezcan vacíos aún mayores cuando el estudiantado vuelva a los salones de clase. ¿Qué estrategias considerará usted para enfrentar el aumento de estas dificultades?

El COVID nos ha mostrado la importancia del apoyo de las familias para facilitar la educación de los estudiantes. ¿Cómo utilizará este hecho para ampliar la función de los padres en la toma de decisiones y promover la participación de los padres de familia en las escuelas?

Our equity projects, including the Board's equity committee, will need to continue identifying disparities in opportunity and correcting them. Summer school and other additional opportunities should be made available for any students needing help to meet demanding grade-level goals.
Some of this is clear: * I will support continuing to put our Board meetings on Zoom even after the Board resumes face-to-face meetings. This will include taking constituent comments over Zoom. * I will support continuing to offer translation, at least into Spanish, of all our Board meetings.

Some of it will require finding resources: * I will support putting Board committee meetings on-line via Zoom. * I will support reviving our local school site councils, which include parents, and receiving reports from them to the Board.
The pandemic did not devastate our finances to the extent we feared, for three reasons: * We built sensible reserve funds over the previous two years. * We got a little help from the federal government. * We saved some money while our buildings were closed.

The biggest challenge: how to help kids catch up from missed learning during distance instruction. We may need to expand summer school options, or supplemental instruction before or after school. This will be expensive.

We have expanded our Chehalem Academy on-line instruction program to meet needs this year. I suspect this program will need to continue to grow, since some families have come to prefer the on-line model. Our Catalyst alternative high school program may also find more demand from families used to non-traditional instruction.

Nuestros proyectos sobre eliminando las disigualidades, incluyendo la mesa directiva's comité, continuarán identificando disigualidades de oportunidad y corregiendolos. Escuela en el verano, y otras oportunidades, deben estar abierto para qualquier estudiante que necesita ayuda.

Unas cosas están claro:

1. Yo quiero continuar poner los juntos de la mesa directiva en Zoom después de volver a juntos "cara-á-cara." Commentarios del pueblo deben continuar por Zoom tambien cómo en persona. 2. Quiero continuar traducción en español de todos los conjuntos de la mesa directiva.

Otras cosas están más dificil, pero tenemos que considerarlos: * Oferando los conjuntos de los comités de la mesa directiva sobre Zoom. * Reanimando los consejos locales para cada escuela, que incluyen padres, y recibiendo sus reportas á la mesa directiva.

La pandemia no tuvo todo el mal efecto nosotros anticipado, por trés razones: * Nosotros hemos accumulado de reservas financios por los dos años antes del pandemia. * El gobierno federal nos ayudó un poco. * Nosotros hemos arrorado dinero cuando las escuelas estuvieron cerrados.

El más grande desafío: cómo podemos ayudar los estudiantes que han perdido oportunidades para aprender en el pandemia? Ellos necesitan más tiempo con enseñadores, tal vez en el verano, ó despues de la escuela. Esto será caro.

Tenemos el Chehalem Academy para instrucción de distancia. Yo creo que esta programa va a crecer en el futuro porque hay unas familias que prefieran esta moda de enseñanza. El mismo pertenece á Catalyst, la escuela alta alternativa.
