Glide School District #12 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.

Even before COVID and the transition to online learning, school districts struggled with disparities in academic achievement. Educators fear even greater gaps upon their return to classrooms. What strategies will you consider to address these increased disparities?

I think that every school will have issues, but that they will vary somewhat between schools. I think the best strategy would be to take into consideration the thoughts that experienced, well rounded teachers had on the topics. The best route would be to sit down with those educators and come up with a plan.
I would like to see the creation of a true PTA at our Glide School District. It would be great to see many of the parents who have come forward with their concerns, to organize under a PTA who would work with the school board members to impart their opinions on the decision making process.
I believe the primary impact of the pandemic is a loss of revenue because of a loss of students. Due to a lack of transparency with our current school board, this is hard to answer not knowing what the current financial situation is. As far as our particular school goes, determining what the financial situation is would be the first step. Reaching out to the parents to see what the majority of the community feels is most important and where they place their priorities, and working towards accomplishing those goals would be the next step.

I think it is important to increase the educational tools available to educators including the means to address the differences in learning styles which have been exacerbated by the comprehensive distance learning model, increasing access to tutors, one-on-one assistance as well as providing the educators with competitive benefits and wages, professional growth and learning opportunities. Also creating policies and programs with understanding of how socioeconomic status can impact learning and ability to follow through, instituting a trauma informed learning environment by having access to full time mental health counselors and supports within the school district. Creating and supporting an environment for inclusion, equity, addressing how biases may be impacting decisions and structure within the district.
During COVID the board and administrators were receiving emergency orders, temporary policies based on metrics and guidelines from CDC to state and local health departments, and the policies were changing rapidly. It would have been useful and helpful to make these available to parents, to assist them in understanding the expectations of the districts, the impact on the students and families in order to have dialogue and discussion. Decisions were having to be made, adjusted and readjusted as the policies changed, temporary legislation was enacted and liability insurance was effected, all of these factors needed to be explained and understood by all parties involved not just the decision makers. In the future, I would recommend a committee of board members, administrators, district staff, parents and students be formed to increase the flow of communication, to provide access to for all parties to have a voice in the process.
The pandemic impacted federal, state and local budgets including school districts. It has shifted the focus from capital improvements such as grounds, buildings, increasing programs to preparing for shortfalls in the next biennium and preserving current programs as learning gaps need to be addressed. The Student Success Act had created hope in reinstating programs such as music, art, counseling, which was then interrupted by the pandemic and budget shortfalls, however, with federal grants and partial funding of the Student Success Act this will provide the necessary funding to focus on short term goals including addressing learning gaps, reinstating programs such as music and art which can be beneficial in this challenging time as well as sports, to provide students with an outlet and support. By delaying projects and focusing on short term, accessible goals within current budget parameters and applying for grants and charitable donations.
