Eagle Point School District 9 Position 5

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.

This is the main elephant in the room. With schools no longer holding children back a grade that haven't mastered their studies, this gap continues to grow and cause problems. I have long been speaking with our Superintendent about how we can lessen the gap and what is best for kids. Strategies I would look at would be, earlier interventions, knowing each kid as they are coming into school and their needs to get them on track before they are graduated to the next grade. Smaller class sizes, if possible. This is difficult with hiring and space, but something we should always be striving for. More IA's to help the teachers, especially in the younger grades where the extra help could make the difference in reading and math. Also, start focusing on the child as a whole, hire PE teachers, art teachers, and music teachers. Teach the whole child and in turn, it will improve their overall being and increase their learning.
Whenever I am in contact with parents in our district I speak with them and encourage them to advocate for themselves. Parents have rights in their child's education. The state may be pushing to take that away from them, but that is not legally the case. A parent has the right to exclude their child from curriculum they don't approve of, a parent has a right to be in the classroom. Parent's have a right to view all the curriculum their teacher is teaching. Parents have a right to speak to their teachers, principals, and administration, not to mention school boards. Parents have the rights and abilities to advocate to their legislator and senators about issues they want to see changed in our school districts. Board members are few but parents are many- the voices of many cannot be ignored!
We have many funds coming in, the Cap tax approved 2 years ago I think, which taxes businesses that make over a net of a million dollars and that money goes directly to school funds. There was also the SIA grant which is now only partially funded which was geared toward helping the underprivileged. Given these different avenues for money we aren't expecting a huge decrease in our budget until maybe next year or the year after. So you sit down with your district leadership team and you use data to figure out what is working in your district and what isn't. You remove things that are proven by data to not be successful and you keep the programs that are. You work hard to be giving the kids in your district the best education you possibly can to keep them in your schools. And you just face the budget crisis head on.
