Community invited to attend celebration
The Woodburn School District will break ground on the new Success High School on Wednesday, November 8 at 1:00 p.m. The community is invited to attend the celebration at 1390 Meridian Drive in Woodburn.
Success High School is one of several bond funded projects supported by the community in 2015 The facility will provide educational space for students in grades 10 through 12 participating in the Woodburn School District’s alternative education program.
“This new facility will meet the needs of our students, while also being environmentally responsible for the community,” said Superintendent Chuck Ransom. “This is a very exciting day, and we hope the community will join us for this event.”
The building will be unique in that a solar array will be incorporated into the structure to provide energy for school district facilities. The project is currently on budget, and construction is expected to be completed by September of 2018 in time for the next school year.
Students at Success complete the same high school graduation requirements as any other Oregon high school and earn a standard high school diploma. Using state benchmarks, teachers design lessons and projects that allow students to demonstrate their skill in a competency-based classroom.
Voters in the Woodburn School District approved a $65 million bond in May 2015 to fund additional space for students, major repairs and maintenance to schools and improvements to security/technology systems. These projects are on a five-year timeline for completion. Interested parties can sign up for bond updates at http://www.woodburnsd.org/bond-updates/.
