Building for Our Future

  • The Oregon School District is moving forward with the first phase of the plan to address population growth that was approved by the community in the November 6, 2018 ReferendumThe Oregon School District has a longstanding history of working together with the community to plan for our future. Together, we have been able to proactively plan for the needs of our District into the future.

The Solution: A Two-Phased Plan

  • After months of examining data, holding workshops and listening to community feedback, the Board selected a two-phased plan:

    • Phase 1 (Now!): Build a K-6th grade elementary school, that will open for the 2020-21 school year. The school will be located in the Terravessa development in the northern part of the school district (Fitchburg).

    • Phase 2 (Future): Build a 6-8th grade middle school located southeast of the Hwy 14/MM interchange. Timing of this future phase will depend on actual student growth and will require a referendum prior to implementation. Once a second middle school is built, schools will be reconfigured to the following:
      • The three K-4 elementary schools convert to K-5
      • K-6 elementary school converts to K-5
      • Rome Corners Intermediate converts to K-5 elementary school
      • Oregon Middle School converts to a 6-8 building
