Fern Ridge School District 28J 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've been privileged to serve as a member of the Fern Ridge School District for 3 years. As a parent with school age children in the district and through my volunteerism with organizations such as Womenspace and Court Appointed Special Advocate, CASA, I bring an awareness through diverse lens. I served on the Fern Ridge Education Foundation and created awareness to the need of the students, teachers and staff within our district. As a business owner, the concept of forecast and budget is vital.

Work with building administrators and teachers to assess the learning gaps within their buildings; encourage the teachers and principals to propose ideas on how best to address the gaps observed. Have dialogue with parents/guardian and gather their willingness to be part of a solution to quickly identify the students who are behind academically. Some areas to consider: create mentoring programs, where advance students can earn credit tutoring students who have fallen behind. Seek to obtain funding to create special curriculum where teachers can work with smaller class to reintroduce subject necessary to improve understanding of the core classes.
Continue dialogue with the community and create events/activities to reinforce the need to have support from parents. Recommend having quarterly updates on progress and invite feedback from parents on what they view as important or is needed to support them and their student at home.
The impact is less funding, loss of funding, as more students leave the district for various reasons. With the impact to business, we have seen less revenue from projected corporate taxes/federal aid has reduced in some cases. All priorities have to be reassessed to determine time and importance with the limited budget. As board members, teachers, school district staff, we all have to reassess what we thought were the priorities; using diversity, equity and inclusion filter to ensure we are making the best decision to serve as many within our school district. Eliminate the frills, set goals and milestones and consistently reevaluate the priorities.
