North Clackamas 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.

This is going to be a complicated issue until we get the kids back at school to see how far the gap has grown. The first step is getting all grades back in school, safely, full time so that the teachers can assess the situation. I believe that the teachers and administrators working with the parents can develop a plan for each child to shrink any gaps. We will need to push the parents to be more involve in both helping to assess their child's needs and helping the school with a plan to catch them up.
I believe it is essential that parents are involved in their kids schooling. School is not a babysitter for the kids, it is resource to better educate and help them grow within your family structure not independent of the family. Parents need to realize they are their child's most important teacher and take their kids education is important enough to take the time to participate.
By working within the means of the existing budget. One major problem of most districts is funding, either lack thereof or careless spending. I would propose and advocate for a balanced budget and working within the means of existing tax structures. Personally I have been fed up with school districts mismanagement of funds then coming after the voters to approve more taxes with the threat of our kids school days, time or teachers being cut. This is not a stainable business model and schools need to start operating more like a business then a charity always asking for more. Each of us have a household budget and we live within that budget and the schools need to do the same.
