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.

In my career as an educator my primary goal was to put students first regarding academic achievement. All students can be successful learners and achieve to the highest standard. It is important to be able to know what each students rate and level of learning is in order to make informed decisions on next steps. Data driven decision making informs instruction. In order to overcome the gaps that students may have experienced being out of the traditional classroom setting school districts must be able to measure students growth. This is where a student is at in their academics and this is what we plan to do so we can continue to learn and grow. Along with academic growth it is as important to understand the socio-emotional aspect of education and academics. Being out of the classroom took a tole on many students emotionally therefore it is important to consider this when we implement strategies to have all students be successful in a school setting
Family is key to a child's success. Family may defined in many ways; a mom and dad, a grandparent, a single parent, a relative that lives with the family. Education is a partnership between school and home. Communication is key to that partnership. There is communication through technology, the teacher texting the parent or visa versa. Posting grades or progress reports on line or mailing home a copy of progress is a form of communication. There are site councils or parent involvement groups that work in tandem with the school for the student's education. Parent nights on specific topics i.e. cyber bullying or college information night. Parent volunteers are always needed and welcomed in schools as they support the daily functions in a school setting.
The pandemic has had a huge impact on schools and spending priorities. The issue of technology was highlighted during the pandemic. Do students have sufficient internet capability and do students have the needed technology, this has been an issue and will continue to be an issue. Staff members at all levels had to rethink on how they teach the core subject which requires more staff development. In my career as a school principal I am used to something called zero based budgeting. It is looking at the big picture of a total budget and then itemizing all things that make a school run. That means that you look at all areas in school setting and then begin to prioritize things that you have to have and things would be nice to have but may need to wait. In any process it is important to always keep the end in mind which is the needs of students and staff while being a good steward of taxpayers money.
