My name is Sara Kirby.
I'm running for Re-Election for
Parkrose School Board, position 2.
Please consider voting for me on May 21st.
Why I’m Running
The small size and diversity of the Parkrose School District community are reasons my husband I and chose to live and raise a family here. Now 11 years later, with over three years on the Parkrose School Board I’m running for Position 2 again. I have learned so much about public education in Oregon, the staff, the students and the community in Parkrose. This is a special place.
School should be an engaging, empowering and transformative experience for students. Because of statewide budget cuts, less is available to Oregon public schools students today, than when I was a kid. Less money, more high-stakes testing, less time being active and fewer elective choices.
My kids, our kids, all kids, deserve the best.
What do I stand for?
I support proven, effective strategies that help Parkrose students reach their potential.
I support a inclusive, welcoming and safe environment where all students and staff are respected.
I will continue to make thoughtful, evidence-based decisions.
I will continue use my position on the board to advocate for the resources our students need.
As the current board chair, and as a member, I will continue to facilitate open, respectful and collaborative, communication and relationships on the board.
I want to continue serving all Parkrose students as a member of the school board.
I would appreciate your vote on May 21st, we can do this together!
