Roseburg School District #4 Position 2

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 would begin by saying, research shows the individual teacher is by far the most important factor in a child’s education.Disparities in achievement and how to address them has created a plethora of questions that teachers have tried to answer over the centuries. It seems each year teachers get better at addressing those disparities that are within their control. Teaching tools, support staff, specialists in reading and math, analysis of student learning, and a robust relationship with the students and their families have helped the classroom teachers to continue to address the disparities and help each student to meet their highest potential.
There are many stakeholders in any school district: students, staff, teachers, administrators, parents, and community members. In the Roseburg School District, parental and family support has always been encouraged and supported. This is evidenced by conferences, email correspondence, webpages for each school, online grading, and teacher-parent interaction, not to mention activities and athletics participation. Over the past year, parents have become increasingly involved due to the necessity of online learning, and the District in general and each individual school will continue to encourage avid parental-guardian participation. I believe everyone involved in a child’s learning this last year will be able and willing to reinforce the involvement of all stakeholders in a child’s education.
Many school districts across the country have had difficulty with the costs of the pandemic, but I believe Roseburg School District, a District with a history of frugal spending and savings, has stepped up to the challenge of the costs involved. With the help of federal aid, the conservative spending policies of our district, and incredible planning on the part of administrators, our district has met the challenges with exacting efficiency. I am proud to have been a part of that planning, and praise our district for its work, which I believe will continue.

Disparities exist in life as in school. It is the individuals responsibility to address their own disparities, and it is the boards responsibility to make sure individuals have the tools they need to accomplish that.
It cannot be stated enough how important family support is to education. I believe we need to repair the relationship between schools and parents that has been so badly damaged over this past year. Educators can only do so much, it is a parents job to be a positive part of a students education if they are to be successful.
This is a difficult question to answer unless you are a current board member. Budgets and spending priorities are 2 of my strongest attributes. As a business owner I am making and reviewing theses financial decisions daily. I enjoy eliminating inefficiencies in systems that result in bottom line savings. Every business could be ran more efficiently and in doing so, save money. In my experience this is doubly true in government operated organizations. I do not see these as new challenges, they are just simply part of doing business.
