Chemeketa Communtiy College District Zone 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.

Community college enrollment fluctuates widely due to economic and other factors, requiring fluctuations in the pool of adjunct professors. How will you work with faculty unions and college administration to assure educational excellence is not impacted by changes in enrollment?
What initiatives would you take or support to improve graduation and transfer rates for low-income students and students of color?
A 2019 Hope Center Survey of approximately 8,100 Oregon community college students indicated a significant number of students experienced basic needs insecurity (41% were food insecure, 52% housing insecure, 20% homeless). What steps can community colleges take to help these students achieve their educational goals in the face of such challenges?
Las inscripciones en los colegios comunitarios fluctúan ampliamente por factores económicos y de otra índole, los cuales requieren también cambios en el grupo del profesorado adjunto. ¿Cómo trabajará usted con los sindicatos de docentes y con la administración de estos colegios para garantizar que la excelencia educativa no se vea afectada por los cambios en las inscripciones?

I and fellow Chemeketa board members strongly support the practices currently in place to ensure excellence in teaching. We frequently review systematic pass/fail, drop/enroll, etc statistics to ensure we are achieving student success goals. We are also part of the budget process when we dive deeply into the funding of programs and services to assure that the college continues best practices to serve students in pursuit of an excellent educational experience that also leads to family-wage paying employment.
I believe adjunct and part-time faculty both offer quality instruction. To ensure consistency in curriculum and assessment we work closely with the Faculty Association which serves both adjunct and part-time faculty. Our Center for Academic Innovation has provided numerous training opportunities and support as well.
I will strive to ensure that Chemeketa’s operations reflect its values, including diversity and equity. Specific efforts have been taking place to improve success for vulnerable students to which the college is committed include Guided Pathways (an at-scale, equity-focused redesign of the academic experience to encourage credential completion; TRIO, CAMP and CCP programs to serve low-income and students of color (and the data of which show extraordinary rates of success); and a recent Hispanic Serving Institution grant received focuses on scaling up best practices in onboarding students, including a robust summer bridge program for students coming to the college directly from high school. These efforts are critical achievements towards increasing graduation and transfer rates for low-income and students of color.
I am proud that Chemeketa understood the challenges students face and have been taking ACTION which I will continue to support. Chemeketa addresses student basic needs insecurity in many ways:
1. We long ago created a Food Panty for students along with a partnership with Marion-Polk Foodshare.
2. Through CCC Foundation we provide emergency grants and child care grants for students.
4. CARES direct-to-student aid.
5. This year we expanded WI-FI services and hotspots on campus so students without access could access online learning on the campus. The Foundation also supported many students with chrome books for online learning, and
6. Worked tirelessly with SNAP recipients to braid federal funding streams and provide multiple supports so that students may attend college and succeed in career pathways that lead to family-wage jobs.
Again, I am extremely supportive and proud of the programs in place and also initiated the past year because of hardships students experienced.
