Before members of the Oregon school board embark in earnest on the search for a new superintendent, they will listen to residents and staff of the district.

A community forum is scheduled for June 3 at 7 p.m. in the Clay High School library to discuss issues facing the district and how they will impact the search process.

Dr. Michael Zalar announced recently he is leaving the Oregon district to take the position of superintendent of North Olmstead City School District. He’d been superintendent in Oregon since 2008 and was principal of Clay High School for five years prior to that.
