On June 6, 2016, state and local leaders will hold an education forum in our community and they want to hear from you! You are invited to join with other members of our community to reimagine education in our state. Come learn more about Oregon’s education initiatives, contribute to a discussion on the factors supporting student success, and get your questions answered by local and state education leaders.

Improving education in Oregon will take all of us. Come add your voice to the conversation and help us reimagine education in Oregon!

On Monday, May 16th, the District 2CJ School Board met for their regular meeting. One of the highlights of the meeting was the approval of the contract and hiring of new Superintendent, Steve Perkins. Perkins comes to Port Orford from Sutherlin, where he served as Superintendent there. Perkins will start, officially, on July 1 and will work part time for the District throughout the year. The Board was impressed with his experience, familiarity with the Port Orford/Langlois area and his energy.
In other business Greg Scott, District Social Studies teacher, did a presentation on two field trips that students recently took. The 7th and 8th grade students went to U of O and the Newport Aquarium. The junior class traveled to Portland. They visited university campuses, a law firm and were able to attend a Trail Blazers game. Department reports were reviewed. The board was informed of a considerable donation of electronics from the Social Security Administration out of North Bend. The donation will allow the district to upgrade in many areas that we would not have been able to otherwise.
We are sad to announce the departure of two teachers: both Greg Scott and Jacki Scott, 5th grade teacher, will be leaving at the end of the school year. We wish them the best in their future endeavors.
The next regular meeting is Monday, June 20th. That will be the final meeting with outgoing Superintendent/Principal, Chris Nichols.
