Superintendent’s Message: Safe, Welcoming Schools

Posted on: March 1, 2017

Superintendent Jim Golden sent a letter home to all families, reminding them about the District’s goal of inclusiveness.

“We want every one of our students to feel valued and safe in our schools. We do whatever we can to assure that students are treated respectfully and are not subject to intimidation, bullying or harassment. We are always looking for ways to assure that all students have a successful learning experience that gives them the skills necessary for them to eventually graduate and go on to a successful post high school outcome.”

Work group develops plan for vocational (CTE) programs in bond proposal

Posted on: February 20, 2017

Vocational technical training, also known as Career Technical programs and applied learning, helps students learn about possible career paths and prepare for the workforce. These programs also increase the chance that a student will graduate.

The Oregon Department of Education has data that shows students are more likely to graduate if they participate in a vocational technical, or CTE, program:

According to the Oregon Department of Education, “The 2013-2014 four-year cohort graduation rate for CTE concentrators in Oregon was 85.7%; for all students (including CTE concentrators) it was 76.4%. An Oregon CTE concentrator is a student who has earned one or more credits in a technical skill course(s) within an Oregon state-approved CTE Program of Study.” 

Projects in Ballot Measure 22-165 would include remodeling existing classrooms and building new instructional space to allow hands-on activities in high-demand career fields.

A recent work group identified current and planned vocational technical education programs that would be added to all middle and high schools if the bond passes in May.

Read the program development report for more information.

Calapooia Middle School rewards student behavior with administrator dunk tank

Posted on: January 30, 2017

Calapooia Middle School rewarded good behavior last Friday with a dunk tank for school administrators. Students with no tardies or absences got a chance to soak Principal Gina Ayers, Assistant Principal Scott Smith or Behavior Specialist George Sanchez.

Students enjoyed a party with games and snacks after they took their turn at the dunk tank. Thanks for being such good sports, Calapooia Administrators! Even in cold weather, they modeled positive behavior for their students.
