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, Guardians, Students, and Community Members:

I’d like to welcome you all to the Principal’s Corner portion of our school website.   Along with the“In The Middle newsletter, this websiteis one of the primary means used to communicate the happenings and updated schedules throughout the school year.  We will be implementing a revised version of our new master schedule from last year.  On Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, students will have an 8-period day with Enrichments and Extended Learning Opportunities (ELOs).  ELOs offer a chance for teachers to work with students who are in need of some additional support in math and/or reading.  This year, enrichment classes will last the entire 12-week trimester.  On Tuesdays and Thursdays, students will have a 6-period day with an additional TEAM/Homeroom class in the afternoon.  Enrichments and ELOs are set to begin on Monday, September 19th.
Our Oaklea Parent Group meetings are scheduled for the first Friday of each month at 8:20 a.m. We had over 25 parents at our September meeting!  If you can’t make the morning meetings, but would still like to be involved or volunteer with the OMS Parent Group, please check out the Oaklea Parent Group Facebook page, or email a message to “oakleaparentgroup@gmail.com.  This school year, there will be all sorts of opportunities for parents to be involved at Oaklea.  If you would like to volunteer in our school, chaperone a dance, or even participate in a field trip, please start the process by filling out the district volunteer application: www.junctioncity.k12.or.us (click on “Forms” and then “Volunteer Background Check application).  We are transitioning systems, and do not have the online entry at this time.  Please drop off hard copy forms in our main office.  

Important Events Coming Up:
