Gresham-Barlow School District At-large Position 6

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.

We must meet our students where they are at upon their return. Students may not have had the opportunity for academic learning but they will come to us with a wealth of knowledge gained from the experiences during the pandemic. We must see our kids through an strength-based lens and value the resiliency they have.
Parents/guardians may feel empowered or disempowered during this time. It depends on how support was provided to them. If parents were provided the support needed to navigate technology and were seen as assets by our schools, they will become great advocates for their children. It is our job as educators to foster that skill and build parent leaders in our schools.
We will need to do a needs assessment once our students return to school. Once we know what our needs are we will need to prioritize the needs to address first. Then we will need to identify the resources needed to address these priorities. This needs to be done in collaboration with our students and teachers.

As a school board we need to create programs that will help close the gaps in academic achievement. There is no one size fits all program that will work for all students. We will need to create multiple programs to help students from all different backgrounds. First and foremost our students need to return to 5-day a week in classroom instruction for us to begin to close this gap.
I believe that COVID has opened a lot of parents eyes into what is involved in our students education today. It's important to continue the parental involvement that is currently being implemented while our students return to in person learning. Using todays technology via different secure apps and portals parents can keep up with their students progress and be aware of when their students may be falling behind. Having this parental involvement will create another advocate to get students help when needed.
During the pandemic the school districts budget has seen a surplus due to not having schools open and operating and the cost savings that come along with that. I would propose that the surplus in budget money created during the pandemic be used to help our schools provide the needed protection so our students can return to full time in classroom instruction. To go along with school budgets I believe the budget for the GBSD needs to be spent more responsibly. With the recent bond measures approved I believe that this money can be spent more responsibly while still providing our students with the best education possible.
