The Ohio Sixth District Court of Appeals has upheld a lower court ruling that the Oregon Career & Technology Center did not violate the Ohio Consumer Sales Practices Act as contended by 12 students enrolled in the center’s Green Energy Program.

The students filed a lawsuit in December 2009 against the center, alleging its Green Energy, Electrical & Environmental Specialist adult education program was fraught with poor facilities, incompetent instructors, lack of instruction on promised curriculum, a lack of hands-on training, and there was no job shadowing as promised.

About 100 residents packed into Oregon council chambers Tuesday to respond to the recreation committee’s proposal to gauge whether there is public support for construction of a multi-use recreation/community facility.

The vast majority of those attending were for such a facility, but some stressed they did not want to see additional taxes paying for it.

Cardinal Stritch Catholic High School is expected to have its biggest incoming freshman class in five years next fall.

Last year’s prospective freshmen were at about 60 students. Stritch has received over 90 applications for the 2012-13 year. While the school caps its classes at 80, Kevin Parkins, vice president of advancement, says the school will take more if a student’s application looks good.

The Oregon Recreation and Parks Committee will host a public hearing on Tuesday, March 13 at 7 p.m. in council chambers, 5330 Seaman Road, to gauge whether there is public support for the construction of a multi-use recreation/community facility.

“We’re looking for public input on the potential for moving forward with a new recreation design and get some indoor facilities,” said Council President Tom Susor.

The Oregon school board is focusing on making significant changes in the district’s core curriculum that are expected to be implemented within the next few years.

“This is going to apply to all of our students within the context of our school districts,” Diane Gadus, vice president of the school board, said at a special meeting on March 5. “This is a major overhaul of our educational system here in Oregon City Schools. In essence, it’s going to change the context of education as you and I had experienced when we were back in elementary, middle school and high school. So it’s going to look nothing like we’ve experienced.”
