Roseburg School District #4 Position 7

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.

The COVID "Experience" exacerbated existing issues such as access to digital infrastructure and the economic ability of parents to obtain adequate computers for learning, thus as stated creates an even greater gap for students.

I would propose an adjust year where all students are assessed for academic status and achievement. If some students are behind now, then they will be further behind when school does begin. This should NOT be considered a penalty but a recognition of the indirect COVID devastation. And by the same measure, I believe we will find students who have excelled in an on-line environment.

I believe that we will get through our COVID experience soon, and our education system will recover.
Family support is key, and their understanding of state of their Child's education is paramount given our COVID experience. Their role is essential for not only academic achievement, but also in social growth of the children. This last year saw curtailing of not only academic goals, but also the social experience, and for some, competitive sports, that all contribute to a well rounded education.

I support frequent parent/teacher communication, individual parental and group conferences, parental volunteers in the class room, volunteer parent coaches in sports, and of course involvement in the school board.
The pandemic has affected all publicly funded services. The tax base has been eroded by unemployment and costs to meet the COVID devastation. Locally, we will have to be judicious and prioritize expenditures. But recognize that there has been some relief with $112 Billion for Education Support available nationally through a number of different Acts (Coronavirus Preparedness and Response Supplemental Appropriations Act, Families First Coronavirus Response Act, CARES Act, PPP and Healthcare Enhancement Act, and Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021), the majority of such support is to help K-12 schools safely reopen, including targeted efforts for school infrastructure such as improved ventilation systems. The America Rescue plan promises another $170 Billion for education.

So our task is to support the community to achieve a higher employment rate, thus expanding the tax base for education, and assure that we receive our fair share of any new national distributions.
