Junction City School District Placed on the College Board’s Gaston Caperton Opportunity Honor Roll for Expanding Access to College
130 School Districts Across the U.S. Are Honored

Junction City, Oregon — Junction City School District is one of 130 school districts in the United States- and one of only two Districts in Oregon- being recognized for creating opportunities for traditionally underrepresented students. The districts featured on the Honor Roll have expanded access to higher education by providing students with rigorous academic offerings and innovative college-preparation programs.



Principal, Brian Young

On May 18, 2016, Junction City High School received notice of a threat to the campus via the Junction City Police Department. The campus was placed in lockout status during that notification call. Building administrators at Oaklea Middle School, Laurel Elementary School, and Territorial Elementary School were advised to lockout those campus buildings as well.

Lockout status directs staff to secure all exterior doors to prevent entry into campus buildings. When the campus is in lockout, individuals are able to move within each building, but are not permitted to exit or travel between buildings. This is in contrast to a lockdown which requires staff to shelter students in place by locking interior doors including classrooms and offices. JCHS conducted a lockdown drill of the entire campus in cooperation with JCPD and other law enforcement agencies on May 13, 2016.

At the time of the lockout, students were present in four separate buildings on the campus, and a physical education (PE) class was outside. Staff responded quickly to bring students inside and secure the perimeter. Because the lockout extended into two additional class periods, and students typically move between buildings during passing times, staff sheltered students in place by holding them in class for the duration of the lockout. At no time, however, were interior doors placed in lockdown status.

Junction City Police and the school principal canvassed the campus classroom by classroom to search for signs of possible threats and to assess the well-being of students while other law enforcement agencies remained on stand-by status.

The decision to lift the lockout was made after determining that the threat was not imminent.

School attendance is consistent with normal attendance patterns.

May-June 2016

As the end of the school year approaches, I’d like to thank all of the parents and guardians who have volunteered so many hours of their time to our students and staff.  Your continued involvement allows Oaklea to be a great middle school!  I’d also like to invite you to “An Evening in Our Backyard” on Saturday, May 21st at 6:30 p.m. @ Guaranty Motorhome Showroom.  The Oaklea Parent Group has planned this event as a fund raiser of the Oaklea backyard project.  Our hope is to revitalize our backyard area with additional play equipment, an outdoor classroom, and other highlights for kids, parents, and community. 

It has been an eventful year at Oaklea, with several changes to our master schedule.  We are currently working as a staff to discuss how the schedule will work next year, and I would appreciate any parent feedback, especially on Enrichments and Extended Learning Opportunity periods, block scheduling for 5th & 6th grades, and our SPED inclusion model.   Feel free to e-mail me at byoung@junctioncity.k12.or.us

Please note that the 8th Grade Recognition ceremony begins at 6:00 p.m. on June 16th in the OMS large gym.  If you would like to volunteer to be involved in one of our end-of-year field trips, please fill out a volunteer background form located on the district’s website, and return it to our front office.
