Push comes to shove in our schools: Turning parts of the state’s education system over to the private sector.

As the state budget day of reckoning draws closer and closer, those in charge of analyzing education funding are thinking more and more outside the box. New ideas like privatizing certain school functions and new curriculum and teacher training are looming larger on the horizon. Less of a top down set of rules…more like bottom up use of new approaches that are working. An opening-shot type story from the Portland Oregonian:

Seaport Air Open House Today (Thursday) at Newport Airport

Cessna 208, same model as Seaport’s new aircraft

Seaport Air is welcoming everyone to their open house today at the Newport Airport from 12 to 4pm. They’ll be showing off the latest addition to their air fleet, the Cessna Caravan 208, which is less costly to fly than their traditional Pilatus PC-12 aircraft. Seaport Air reports the Cessna 208 will be replacing the PC-12 on many flights in order to bring Seaport’s air service costs down into a range that they hope will make their daily flights to Portland self-sustaining, or nearly so.

Visitors to today’s open house will be treated to tours of the new aircraft along with snacks and refreshments including wine for those 21 or older.

Again, today, 12-4, Newport Airport.

Accused Grants Pass drug dealers busted

From Oregon State Police

An investigation by the Rogue Area Drug Enforcement (RADE) team led to the arrest of two Grants Pass-area residents on marijuana-related charges.

Newport High/Newport Prep Academy principal responds to junior high sports criticism.

Provided by Lincoln County School District
Letter to the community by Jon Zagel, Principal, Newport High/Newport Prep Academy

Recently, a Newport parent called into a talk radio show airing out of Portland. She expressed concerns about volleyball and football being offered to our seventh and eighth graders while we are facing budget cuts and crowded classrooms. It’s important that I clarify this matter. I also must give a sincere and overdue “thank you” to those who are making sports possible for our younger students this year.

The cost of providing fall athletics to our seventh and eighth grade students is being underwritten by an extremely generous donation from the Newport Booster Club, whose mission is to support athletics at Newport schools. Coaching salaries, officials’ fees, and transportation to and from games total $13,400. Participating athletes pay $50 each, or $3,000. The total donation from the Boosters is $10,400. Without this donation, we would not have had fall sports at Newport Prep Academy this year. (more…)
