Perrydale School District Position 3

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 I have over twenty years of experience leading organizations' engagement strategies to meet their public policy objectives. My extensive work with the Oregon Legislature and state and federal agencies will bring value to the Perrydale School Board. Additionally, I have been an education advocate through my volunteer activities.

We first need to implement strategic use of the federal relief funds that are coming to the state and districts to support and assist students that fell behind over the past year. Programing should also focus on student mental health, which became a heightened issue during COVID and an item we will struggle with during the transition back to a more traditional classroom settings.
Perrydale School is successful due to its strong community support. This past year, our families have taken more direct roles administrating education in their homes. However, teachers have lost parent volunteer support and at a time when they were asked to do more. We need to first bring parent volunteers safety back into schools and classrooms. These parent provide support to their children's classrooms, but also to other students, who may need that feeling of community.

Public boards function appropriately by listening and weighing public comment. This is an important engagement for parents and should be welcomed and encouraged.
School boards may need to prioritize expenditures to assist with student success in a post COVID-19 settings. With the influx of federal funds to Oregon and specifically direct allocations for education, I don't see funding challenges being an issue until fiscal year 22-23. However, school boards will need to be planning for potential lean years to come and ensure they have strong carry over balances to bridge a funding decline.

School boards will need to partner with the Oregon School Board Association and other education stakeholders to advocate for strong K12 funding at the legislature in the 2023 legislative session.
