Amy Kohnstamm wants to hold Portland Public Schools accountable for getting results.
Julie Esparza Brown said the district must take a better look at how to improve Oregon's statewide education picture.
Paul Anthony said he'd like to see frequent financial reports and a better monitoring of the district's budget.
These are three of the four newly elected directors to the Portland Public Schools Board of Education, chosen by voters Tuesday night. Mike Rosen, who ran unopposed for the Zone 7 seat, is the fourth new board member.
Eleven candidates had filed for the open spots, with some races more competitive than others.

Current board members Ruth Adkins, Matt Morton and Greg Belisle are stepping down.
