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.

Dear Parents and Guardians:

January is School Board Appreciation Month and Laurel would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every Board member for their time, effort and unwavering support for the children of Junction City community. As we reflect on our practices, decision-making and passion, we feel grateful to be supported by Board members who always put children first.

During the month of January, we are focusing on a very important and relevant component of our school’s vision and that is “compassionate Citizens.” Students are exploring with one another, and with staff, ways we can show compassion. This is a great topic you can be asking your child about around the dinner table, on the ride home, or during special moments. We have worked diligently as a Laurel community to support all of our students who come from diverse socio-economic, political, racial and religious backgrounds. It remains our responsibility to ensure that every child feels loved, accepted and important in our school. To that end, we launched a “compassionate Hearts” movement with the goal of catching EVERY child being compassionate. Any student who exemplify the essence of this movement will receive a paper heart to recognize their kindness and caring for others.
