North Clackamas School District 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.

Kids need choices for learning in different ways and need supports for mental, social and emotional needs, food and medical care. Our district has supported choices already with various charters and online programs but there is greater demand for online to continue, so our board approved and I supported expanding the popular North Clackamas Virtual On Line Program for kids to lean at their own rate with providing individualized instruction.

There will be one-time resources from the state and Federal government available for summer and next school year to help kids with credit recovery, tutoring, enchased summer activities and childcare for families. I will support these programs and 1-1 computer device and supports for connectivity when needed. We also need to continue with counseling, food, and health needs through our school based health centers that will be available for all children in the district.
There was so much uncertainty with changing regulations and the power to make a decision changing from the State to local. Our parents have voiced that they want concise regular updates from the district but more from their local schools. Creating more parent online support groups through their community school with assistance of PTA/PTO and principals is needed. The more personalized, the better coming from each Principal or teacher. Videos are always popular as emails can get lost. Surveys can be helpful for asking input.
The priorities changed from staff needs to technology, food and programs and curriculum. There have been three stimulus packages of resources from the Federal government that were needed for paying for additional Chromebooks and stable and reliable internet connections. Food and homelessness needs greatly increased so we are thankful for these dollars. As we safely return to school we will assess needs.

There have been and will be achievement gaps. Whether it be our TAG, low-income, SPED or ESL students. We need to monitor regularly, sooner than later. We could look at the proficiency model where we evaluate where the child is at currently and, based on the results, the child will either be at pace or grade level or will need remediation. As we allow the kids to move forward who are at or above grade level, this will free up money for the kids who need the extra curricular attention to get them caught up.
I want to open that line of communication with our parents. I believe in transparency. I will keep myself inform to keep the parents informed, things are constantly changing. Our parents need to know they have been heard and their opinions are supported. I'll help promote what current parent clubs we currently have available and encourage involvement in such ways. Knowledge and access is power for all allike.
The budget is always going to be a working document. What is something today, wasn't yesterday or tomorrow. We will need to work together as a whole community to reevaluate areas, over or under spending. I can bring new creativity and experience to help be fiscally responsible with our current and future incoming monies.
