Spectacular News»
Junction City High School has been Awarded over $300K in Grant Funds to Revitalize Culinary Arts Program

Junction City High School students will have expanded access to college credits and career training thanks to a career readiness grant from the State of Oregon! JCSD, along with 32 other Oregon school districts received 10.3 million for hands-on learning that offers high school and college credits.

Junction City and Bethel were the only two Lane County School Districts to be named CTE Revitalization grant recipients.

The Career Technical Education (CTE) Revitalization Grant awarded to the JCHS program is worth over $300K and will allow a complete renovation of the Culinary Arts Program. The resulting upgrades will make curriculum expansion possible as it increases the classroom/lab capacity, quality of facilities, access to dual credit options and will allow for participation in county and statewide culinary competitions.

Through our close work with Lane Community College industry partners and local businesses, we have identified a path to articulation of our cooking courses which is dependent on identified facilities upgrades.

We are delighted that Junction City students will have another great Career-Technical Education path available.

OREGON RISING. Great Schools. Great State.

Oregon Rising is a public outreach effort that's focused on learning about what Oregonians want for their children and their schools. At the heart of the work is the prompt to dream big, and to share the dream. In the first phase, we provided a survey and held community meetings. In both, we asked you to describe the education Oregon students would receive, if it were up to you.

Within two months, we heard from more than 10,000 Oregonians, from all walks of life and from every county in the state. Next, we will share our findings and then together, develop a vision and plan that can deliver what Oregonians want.

Oregon Rising refers to one thing we find most people agree upon: When our children are successful, we are all successful. Thus, our tagline: Great Schools, Great State. Because we believe great schools are the foundation for a great State of Oregon, and a great state of our economy, our communities and our future.

I hope you and yours enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving break.   We have so much to be thankful for as a District and community- our most recent blessing comes in the form of a $330+K grant we were awarded from the Oregon Department of Education!  The “Revitalizing Career and Technical Education (CTE)” grant will allow us to make major facilities and equipment upgrades to our Culinary Arts program at Junction City High School.  We will be able to expand our course offerings in this area, and serve more students in the program. We also will be able to “articulate” some of these courses with Lane Community College so that our students can earn College Now credits.  We will be adding some of our Measure 98 funds to these grant funds in order to complete the revitalization project in a way will lead to further post-secondary options for our students, save families money on college credits, and make our community proud. 

Now, on to news from around our District, followed by a brief overview of last Monday’s (11/27) Board of Directors’ meeting.

During this time of Thanksgiving, the JCHS administration would like to thank our school Board members for their volunteerism and service to our students and staff.  We appreciate the support the Board provides in helping us keep the focus of our decision-making on kids.  We would also like to thank our district leadership team, teachers, and classified staff for the countless ways they provide support for all the students and families in the Junction City community.

At JCHS, we are excited to see walls going up in the new addition construction zone.  Students and staff are now able to visualize the layout of classrooms and offices, and we have had several workshops to discuss how best to furnish all of the classrooms, media center and collaboration spaces. We have started the process of moving books and supplies from the media center in anticipation of the renovation of that space that will take place this spring.  This is an exciting time for JCHS!

The Top Tiger seniors visited the NCU hospital this past week, and saw a significant part of why they are fund raising.  Leadership students are busy preparing for Winter Week, which will take place from December 11th to 15th.  Winter sports have now begun, with the addition of a new Girls' Wrestling team.  Over 25 students were honored at Breakfast of Champions this past Tuesday, with parents present for this important, well-deserved recognition.

Last week was Finals Week, with record-keeping taking place on Friday.  The new trimester kicked off yesterday, December 5th, and students and staff are excited to start the new term.
On a professional development note, JCHS teachers received training on differentiated instruction & assessment on Monday, December 4th.  Linda Vanderford- who also presented to the Oaklea staff a couple years back- spent time sharing a variety of strategies for meeting the needs of all our kids in the classroom.  Teachers have now completed their professional and student learning growth goals for the year, and their goal meetings have been taking place with their school administrators.
Finally- to our community members- we are still looking for ways our students can serve.  We have re-implemented annual volunteer service hours as part of the graduation plan, and appreciate any communication on opportunities to share.  Please call the front office at 541-998-2343, or email an administrator if you would like to pass along information on a volunteer opportunity.
