School Bond Market Favors
Junction City
In a fluctuating market, Junction City School District was able to leverage buyers for a successful return on bond sales this week.  The District hired Piper Jaffray to facilitate $14.635 million in bond sales as generously authorized by our voters this last May.  All bonds were purchased during the sale window coordinated between the District and Piper Jaffray.  The calculated yield rates made them very palatable to a number of financial management companies, private investors, and industry professionals.

The estimated tax rate impact to our community was originally stated in our informational bond campaign as $1.62 per thousand dollars of assessed home value.  The final rate has come in just under that amount and is estimated to remain at that amount throughout the ten year term, thus meeting our commitment to our taxpayers.

Additionally, the structure of the sale enabled the District to also realize premiums paid by the investors.  These premiums have resulted in more than $2.8 million in additional capital construction revenue beyond the $14.635 million in bonds.  Combined with the $4 million in matching funds from the State, the District will have a total of just over $21.5 million in capital funds to invest in the projects identified under the initial bond title.  This means the District will be able to invest in more of the critical infrastructure needs at each of our buildings as well as achieve greater progress toward our high school investment master plan.

As outlined in our earlier bond information, the District will adopt an evaluation and decision –making process for distributing these funds to projects as identified in both our original bond title and master plan and will share the results with our community as that evolves.

Junction City students, staff, and community will be updated throughout this process, and our staff will be available to answer any questions.  This week’s bond sale success will allow us to further our goal of maintaining and advancing district facilities to support district educational goals, enhance safety, and promote community involvement.

Thank you again to all of our community for your support.



Principal, Brian Young

Dear Parents and Community Members,

Thanks for helping to make this a great start to the 2016-17 school year!  I’d like to thank many of you for attending our Open House Night in September.   It is one of my favorite activities of the school year, as we see the amount of parent and community support we have for our students.  We want Oaklea to be a “community school” where parents and students have ample opportunities to stay involved and connected.  If you have not been able to obtain your Home Access login for grade checks, please call the front office at 998-3381.  You can expect to see updated grade reports at a minimum of every two weeks.  Thank you to our OMS Parent Group and all who participated in the fall fund raiser that generated funding for enrichment opportunities, field trips, and technology in the building.  Parent group meetings continue to be the first Friday of each month at 8:20 a.m.

“College Knowledge Night” is coming up on Tuesday, October 11th @ 6:30p.m. in our main gym.  Please come and join us with your student.  This is open to grades 5-8.  It’s never too early to be thinking about college and possible career choices.  I would like to personally thank Mrs. Elstone for her work to organize this event, with many local universities and community colleges in attendance.

In October, we will be practicing our emergency procedures for lockdown, lockout, earthquake preparedness, evacuation, and fire drill.  Our safety committee values the importance of making sure our staff and students know the procedures.  Our resource office, Ken Jackson, and the JC police department will be present to evaluate our emergency plans and to provide feedback.  If you would like to learn more about the safety guidelines we use, please visit the “I Love You Guys” foundation website at http://iloveuguys.org/.  As always, please call or e-mail me with any questions.

School Bond Updates
3 High School Designs Build Excitement
Workshop five presented some changes...The DLR Group built on the suggestions of Focus Groups and presented three updated design renderings for the pre-design phase of planning. Focus Groups discussed classrooms, labs (science, business, digital, media), offices, collaboration zones (student, staff and community) maintenance, safety and electrical needs while carefully considering students' educational needs.
See Workshop 5 Designs HERE!

Territorial Elementary School - Covered Play Structure Delivered!

Students watch with excitement as their outdoor covered play shelter is delivered.
The District will soon award a contract for installation of the shelter and a ribbon-cutting ceremony will take place once the shelter installation is complete.

Again, Thanks to Junction City Voters for making this dream come true for Territorial kids!
