Junction City School District 69 Position 1

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.

I believe the most important way to close the academic achievement gap is to ensure we continue offering the programs that interest our students and support our teachers who love to teach these programs. When a student feels valued and their engagement is encouraged, they are more likely to be inspired to in turn increase their personal investment in their education. By fostering their interest and engagement we can increase and inspire their efforts to areas of their education that they previously may have felt less inclined to give it their all!
COVID has really highlighted the importance of parents roles in education. Once safe to do so, I would love to create more opportunities for families to come together at the schools. While sports is a popular parent-student connector, I would like to advocate for more after school activities that will not only get the families together, but will provide an opportunity for cultural education and immersion. I also believe that in the post COVID world, communication between parents and the teachers will be paramount. A dialogue should be encouraged not only when there's an issue, but when we see things that should be praised and celebrated as well.
I'm not aware of the exact fiscal impact of the pandemic, but I think it's safe to assume that the expense of making remote education possible, from the purchasing of new laptops for every student and the other requirements for distance learning have placed a strain on school budgets moving forward. As a board member, I would continue to research our district's specific needs, and then collaborate with stakeholders to determine the appropriate budgetary actions to take in order to help tackle these challenges. I strongly believe that by finding creative and innovation solutions to the problems Junction City School District will face moving forward, we can continue to offer outstanding education to our students and excellent support to our licensed and classified staff.
