HB 453 – Oregon Rural Remote/Small School Funding
(3) A school may qualify as a small high school if:
(a) The school is in a school district that has an ADMw of less than 8,500;
and (b) The average daily membership in grades 9 through 12 for a high school teaching:
(A) Four grades is below 350. (B) Three grades is below 267.
Update: CSD has lost our small school funding in 2015!
CSD has also reported our 9th graders at the middle school, even though they physically attend the High School.
This practice started under Superintendent Dunton in 2003 ( Now the Director of the Charter School ) and has been continued under Superintendent Trani. Our 9th graders are not physically attending the middle school but we report them there. The Charter is/was reporting their 9th graders at the high school – where they actually attend. Now we will be adding a STEM school (or trying to) to continue this practice. More here.
