West Linn-Wilsonville School District 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.

Even before COVID and the transition to online learning, school districts struggled with disparities in academic achievement. Educators fear even greater gaps upon their return to classrooms. What strategies will you consider to address these increased disparities?

COVID has shown us the importance of family support in facilitating students’ education. How will you build on this understanding to increase the role of parents in decision making and promote parental involvement in schools?

I will listen to you for ideas. One idea relevant to West Linn-Wilsonville School District is to take a closer look at our vocational and technical high school. I want to be sure it is not just sidelining students who are not college bound in order to inflate the graduation numbers of our other two high schools. Done right, vocational and technical education can be the key to linking graduates to good jobs. Are we doing it right?
We have to take great care to be sure parental involvement does not mean parents have to bear more of the burden of educating kids while still maintaining their own jobs. Parental involvement comes easily for folks in certain socioeconomic groups. For others, it can be an added burden if we don't develop new approaches that help rather than hinder parents.
I'm sure personal protective equipment and redesigning use of space is costly. Our district should work to obtain state and federal assistance for these things if it is available.

Going back to school after the shutdown will be a challenge on many levels. There will be more than just an academic gap-emotionally, socially, developmentally, mentally, & even physically (lack of physical activity). Brown has promised extra funding that can be used this summer. My vision is to create "mini summer camps" that integrate learning while having fun, relearning social skills, including physical activity, and is educational such as learning about science while being outdoors. Summer reading programs paired with an art/science activity. The funding should also provide individualized tutors for those that need the extra one on one to help bridge the gap. Counselors should also be hired to help with mental health. For those students who chose to continue with online learning, my vision is to provide some programs or activities that will bridge them with their peers so they will feel connected. We may have to extend the calendar year.
It's my vision as a school board member to create a partnership with parents, teachers, and students with open communication and transparency. We need to have resources available to parents in both English and Spanish. Family support is essential in student success and my goal is a more inclusive approach in which parents can be a part of the decision making process and have the use of "opt out" for some curriculum that they feel may not be age appropriate. Parents can have access to the curriculum and choose to supplement at home. In regards to DEI, I propose a DEI advisory committee that is open to anyone who wants to share input or have a voice. One of my strengths is that I am a good listener, I welcome others' perspectives & value their input. Parents know their children the best. One of our children had sensory issues and we had to be advocates from the very beginning because a one size fits all approach to learning doesn't work for everyone. I will encourage parents involvement.
The pandemic affected the budget & spending priorities in that salaries and benefits remained unchanged. However, there were increased costs of purchasing the comprehensive distance learning programs (2 programs Fuel Ed and Florida Virtual) for the schools, the cost of training the teachers for CDL, & the cost of purchasing the chrome books for the students and Internet access. Lunches were still provided to the underserved students. There were additional spending priorities on PPE for staff, faculty, and students, cleaning supplies, and upgraded ventilation to meet the new standards. The school district lost revenue by not being able to rent out the facilities, not having sporting events, and not selling lunches. The school district saved money on bussing, utilities, and substitute teachers. The school district did receive some money from the Federal Government through the CARES ACT to help reimburse for the extra costs so the WLWV school district will be watching the budget.
