Later School Start Times

Why should the district consider a later start time for high school students? A committee of Oregon City educators has spent the last year studying how later school start times can help improve the health of high school students. The American Academy of PediatricsCenter for Disease Control and Prevention and the American Medical Association all agree that later school start times have potential benefits to physical and mental health, safety, and academic achievement.

​Alarming Local STI Rates


Did you know that over the last five years, the number of chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis cases has  dramatically increased in Clackamas County? In 2017, there were 1,441 cases of chlamydia, 340 cases of gonorrhea, and 56 cases of syphilis. At a School Board Work Session in October, representatives from Clackamas County Public Health reported these and other alarming STI rates. To view the report and presentation checkout the meeting agenda (PDF). 

As a result, the Oregon City School Board will discuss a resolution to amend the existing agreement with Clackamas County to make contraceptives available at the School-Based Health Clinic at Oregon City High School at their meeting on December 9th. The Board will consider adopting the resolution at the January 13th meeting.

If you’d like to learn more about how we can interrupt the alarming STI rates affecting our youth, we invite you to the community conversation at 6:00pm, on December 11th at the Willamette Falls Health Education Center. Representatives from Clackamas County Public Health, the Oregon City School Board and district administrators will be available to share information and answer questions.

Students share design ideas for middle school


As architects gather input on the design of the new Gardiner Middle School, some of the most creative ideas have come from students at Gardiner and Ogden.

Six students from each school joined the middle school planning team, and work alongside architects and teachers to help design a replacement of the 1954 school. Voters approved a bond  issue to fund the project in the November 2018 election.
