The domestic violence case against Joseph Kiss, Jr., chairman of the Jerusalem Township board of trustees, was terminated on “Call of the Prosecutor” (COP) on Monday, October 1, in Oregon Municipal Court.

The Oregon City Schools district, in an effort to save money and improve communication, has recently implemented Power Announcement, an automated communication tool which allows parents to choose how they want to be contacted for various types of district communications. 

Parents can choose to be contacted via text message, e-mail and/or phone (cell or home) for emergency notifications, student bulletins, attendance notifications, school cancellation messages, and general messages.  Power Announcement is tied directly to the PowerSchool parent portal, which can be accessed via the district’s website at http://www.oregoncityschools.org
