Lake Oswego School District Position 4

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.

Term Third
The Lake Oswego school district has remained one of the best performing districts in the State of Oregon due to dedication to reach every student through the analysis of data; hiring, retaining, and providing professional development to our teachers to keep them up to date on best practices; and a high performing board that plans strategically. One of the steps already taken has been a study of special services for students. The study is helping provide a roadmap to reach students in the ways that can improve their delivery of education. The District has prioritized decision making with equity, inclusivity, growth, shared leadership and addressing the whole child as priorities. Decision making has been and will continue to be made to provide students what they need. The District continues to analyze and address needs with strong input and communication from both parents and students.
LOSD has a long history of parent involvement in decision making and in every aspect of the district. The district continues to improve on the committee structures through constant review. All ten schools have active parent organizations and active school advisory committees. In non-Covid times, the district had active participation at public meetings and school board meetings from parents. During COVID, outreach has increased for input through online surveys and when possible, online meetings. Two students serve on the Board of Education, the Superintendent has advisory committees and the Board has board-appointed committees. All of these serve as communication vehicles to involve parents in every aspect of the District and advice the Board of Education. The Board is constantly reviewing how to reach more parents, involve them in decision-making, and keep them informed of changes in a rapidly changing world.
LOSD is fortunate to have a history of fiscal responsibility and attention to financial details. Districts must look at new ways to address challenges. There were students who did better in distance learning, students who did worse, and some that distance learning made no difference. School districts had to incorporate online learning – but first had to make sure all students had the tools – a device and working internet access. The funding impacts are still being evaluated.. Schools need to address learning loss for many students. The biggest challenge is the way Oregon funds schools. The current legislative budget proposal is perceived as keeping the schools whole. It does not. It funds at levels from two years ago. The pandemic has added to uncertainty. Schools need to look at whether year round school may help bring students back up to speed and what is needed to bolster the health of students and teachers if pandemic measures continue.
