Oregon City Schools Superintendent Lonny Rivera wants to boost the private fundraising potential in the district to help support educational programs.

“We can’t do everything through taxpayer dollars,” said Rivera at a school board meeting on Tuesday. “What I really want to do is try and find a way that we can make the experience second to none for our kids. And one of the ways that we are going to do that is to tap into the private resources in our community – people who have come from these halls, who have a tie to and love for our district. I think we have not tapped into that resource like we should.”

The district, he said, “is on the verge of some really exciting things.”

 
Oregon - School board extends school day by half an hour

The Oregon school board on Tuesday approved a plan that helps make up school days that were cancelled due to the harsh winter weather in the 2013-14 school year.

The Ohio Legislature for weeks had debated whether or not to allow additional calamity days for school districts because most have exhausted the legal five day allotment. The Legislature finally passed legislation last week that granted four more days.

“We put together a plan as soon as we had word that it had passed,” said Superintendent Lonny Rivera. “We had many ideas for a number of weeks, then we were actually happy to get this moving.”

The plan calls for the school day to be extended by half an hour at Clay High School, Fassett Junior High School and Eisenhower Intermediate School. .

A local credit union has proposed a deal that would put Oak Harbor students on the road to financial literacy as well as place a satellite office within a school building.

Benton-Carroll-Salem Schools Superintendent Guy Parmigian and board member Heather Dewitz recently met with Commodore Perry Federal Credit Union representatives to discuss the idea. Part of the program would be education regarding savings accounts, using check books and accompanying registers and learning the ins and outs of loans, certificates of deposits and mortgages.

“This is a real world, real life opportunity for the kids. It’s part of their mission to be community-based,” Parmigian said of the credit union proposal. “The big picture is they would work with the kids.

Credit union officials asked the superintendent to take the proposal to the board to see if members were interested in pursuing the project.
