Corbett School District Position 3

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.

Addressing academic achievement disparities will require support in the classroom as well as outside the classroom. Supporting students will require the entire school community to be focused on each student’s needs individually. Better understanding of how to apply a justice, diversity, equity and inclusion lens to all our decisions is important to effectively considering each student’s needs. As a board member, I will be prioritizing budget for counselors, wrap around services, as well as in-classroom support.
Corbett is fortunate to have a close-knit community who are invested in our schools. There is a lot of pride in what students in Corbett have accomplished. Sharing our successes by improving communication as well as providing opportunity for feedback with parent events and meetings will help broaden parental involvement. The upcoming search for a permanent Superintendent will also be an opportunity to involve community members to actively participate in determining leadership for the District’s future.
The pandemic has reduced the State’s School Fund. Prior to COVID, the State passed legislation to increase school funding. That hard work was set back by the COVID pandemic. As we were last year, we will again be challenged to balance a desire to reduce enrollment in our District with a need to be fiscally responsible and preserve needed programs and resources. Prioritizing budget areas requires thoughtful understanding of finances, listening to input from all sides of the community and making difficult choices.
