OSU Presidential Scholarship Recipients Seungjoon Lee, Jared Bartunek and Dalton Stormo Congratulations Gentlemen!!
Renowned local geologist, Scott Burns to speak at Lakeridge as part of our annual science lecture series.
PSU geology professor Scott Burns will be giving a talk entitled 'A Tale of Two Floods, the Geology of Lake Oswego' at Lakeridge High School on April 2 from 7-8 pm in the auditorium. It will be $5 per person to attend. Students, their families, and members of the community are welcome to attend. It should be a very interesting and engaging lecture and we hope to see you there.
MUN rooming cards, permission slips, fees, and code of conduct are due ASAP. Please check with your student to be sure they are turned in.
Fees for MUN will be $210. This includes buses, MUN registration, two nights in a hotel, two breakfasts, one dinner, and other incidentals. Students should also plan to bring money for lunches and one dinner.
MUN will meet in the gym on April 11 and 5:30 am. Students should have their conference clothes on (western business attire) and should be ready to go directly to the conference. We will have a continental breakfast for them when we arrive in Eugene. We plan to return to Lakeridge about 2:30/3 on Saturday April 13.
On February 25, 2019, the Lake Oswego School District Board voted to place on the May 21, 2019, ballot a question to increase the local option levy. The renewal of the levy will preserve more than 80 licensed and classified positions while increasing the District’s capacity to serve each and every student. We know that these dollars will provide all of us with the resources we need to reach our goal of 100% graduation and 100% Career and College success while providing students the mental health support they so desperately need.
Title: Lake Oswego School District Levy for Teachers and Educational Programs
Question: Shall District expand programs and preserve class sizes; levy $1.64 per $1000 assessed value for operations for five years beginning 2019-20? This measure may cause property taxes to increase by more than three percent.
Summary: The local option school levy was most recently renewed in 2013. It currently provides more than 12% of the District’s annual operational funding. The renewal of the levy would preserve more than 80 teachers, licensed staff, and support staff while the additional 25 cents or less than $10 per month, will provide:
Mental Health Supports
3 elementary mental health and social-emotional learning counselors
6 elementary STEM/innovation teachers; one for each elementary school makerspace
2 secondary STEM/Innovation teachers; to build out computer science offerings
3 elementary reading support/learning specialists
1.5 PE support for elementary schools
1 additional school resource officer
Spending would be subject to annual audits. This measure would succeed the current school levy at a maximum rate of $1.64 per $1,000 of assessed value. The levy is estimated to raise $13 million beginning with the 2019-2020 fiscal year plus 3% each fiscal year thereafter, concluding with the 2023-24 fiscal year, for a total of $69 million over five years.
