NCSD voters: Scott, not Schroedl, on school board

Voters in the May 21 special election overwhelmingly tasked North Clackamas School Board member Vivian Scott to a third term.

Scott, a former employment service manager for Oregon Tradeswomen Inc., holds a master’s degree in education and bachelor’s in liberal arts from Humboldt State University.

Prior to her election in 2005, Scott volunteered on the Ardenwald Elementary, Rowe Middle and Milwaukie High school councils and served on the NCSD Budget Committee for three years.

Happy Valley resident Steven Schroedl is a member of the governing board for Cascade Heights Public Charter School, where two of his three children are in attendance. Scott trounced Schroedl by a more than 3-2 margin in early returns on Tuesday.

Both candidates said that they weren’t interested in a polarizing debate over charter schools. Schroedl pointed out that “public” is embedded into Cascade Heights’ full school name, and Scott supported the creation of four charter schools to support unique needs of children.

Given the district’s financial challenges, Scott said she remains committed to Career Technical Education; fiscal responsibility and accountability; community involvement, transparency and business partnerships; and innovative strategies for long-term financial stability.

Daryl Dixon and Tory McVay ran unopposed for positions vacated by former School Board members Cheryl Myers and Linda Moraga respectfully. Dixon became the first African American elected to the board and possibly the first in Clackamas County.
