Dallas 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.

Your Experience/Qualificatons 35 years as a Manufacturing Engineer-Product Manager and 8 years as a Middle School computer and science teacher. I graduated from Oregon State University with a BS in Production Technology (now called Manufacturing Engineering). Then 32 years later I returned to college at the University of Nevada-Reno to obtain a secondary Nevada teaching license for physical science and computer literacy. I have volunteered with the Dallas school district for the last 8 years in numerous places.
I would like to work with the different companies that supply internet services in Polk County to provide internet connections to all students in the district at free or greatly reduced rates and so all students have access to the internet and to start a program where companies and people and donate a tablet or laptop so all students have a computer for school use. With the closeness of so many universities in the area, it would be great to have a mentoring program available to assist the students and provide a teaching experience for future teachers.
Since there are only six (6) public schools in this district and several charter schools, I would like to hold a parent night at each school during each school quarter for the parents to present their concerns and ideas for what they would like or see done to improve their child’s educational experience. I want to work with students, parents, teachers, schools and district staffs to achieve their goals.
The pandemic has caused many changes in the allocation of county, state and federal funding for the last year. It will be a gradual process to return to before pandemic funding. Careful study will need to be done in all areas of the budget. The district has been very careful in its spending this last year and has allowed the district to maintain a balanced budget. With students returning to in class learning, health and safety needs will need to be the focal point of all concerned to keep everybody safe.
