Oakridge School District 76 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. ( https://www.oregonlaws.org/ors/198.010 ) Qualifications: Candidate must be a registered voter and a resident of the district for 1 year. Employees of the district are not eligible unless employed as a substitute driver.

Testing to see where the students need the most help. Start with the basic studies that will help the students most in life. Basics that include how to balance a checkbook (the bank I worked at would teach a class once a year on finances), how to cook, do laundry, make change, etc., things they will need to do in everyday life. Not every student will be going to college and many can make a good living in jobs that don't need a degree, but they will need to be able to take care of themselves. I would like to see mentors/tutors from the community. I was amazed at the Scholarships given by members of this community. The people of Oakridge want our students to succeed.
Parents are very important to a students success. The concerns of parents must be addressed. I know surveys are sent to parents and guardians very often, but not always filled out.Not sure how to address this problem. I would love to see parents more involved in the day to day of school. We used to have the PTA and Room Mothers, I'm not sure why we don't have them anymore. I would like parents be able to come to school with their children if they want to. Seeing what goes on in the classroom and getting feedback could makes things better, and give the parents a voice in the education of their children. I'm glad they are allowed to eat lunch (last year) with their children. The free lunches are the best way to help the students prepare for success and glad for the work that went in to making it possible. Thankful that our district was able to get food to the students all the time the school was closed and now that it is open. It is hard to study when you are hungry.
With the students being switched over to online learning during this time has caused many problems and some solutions. Some students have found that working online better meets they way they learn. For others it was a disaster. Each parent needs to choose what it best for their student. That being said, not having the students come back to physical school will make an impact on funds available to the district. Even though many people and businesses have been negatively affected by the shutdowns, I believe our students are still important to them. Letting the community know what is needed could supply the needs of the school at no cost. I remember donations of lumber and other things given to the district. We need to think outside the box for solutions to the needs of the schools.

Strategies I would seek to implement to address the gaps in student's learning would be first to consult with teachers to identify the gaps we are seeing, then I would set about to provide resources to teachers for the needs of our students. I would assist in setting aside funds to invest in our students and their learning gaps, be it after school programs or a study club. The most important issue that our students is their social emotional well-being. I would seek to find resources and opportunities for student's social emotional growth as well as content.
To promote parental involvement in our schools I would offer the opportunity for professional growth for our teachers to set goals that include parents in their child's learning. Setting up community meetings involving parents and staff would allow parents to see that their voices are imperative in their child's academic and social emotional growth.
The pandemic has caused deficits in school budgets. Priorities in spending need to be at the forefront with strategic planning to meet the academic and social emotional needs of our students. I propose an audit into our current spending and see where funds can be designated to meet the needs our students are facing.
