As the creator and administrator of the Corbett Oregon community web site which has been online since 2002, I have had a unique perspective in regards to local events and discussions in Corbett Oregon.
The information on this site is meant to provide background and detail to issues as they relate to the Corbett School District. Please contact this site if you have a question or feel that something is not accurate.
The topics addressed on this web site have been sent directly to the Corbett School Board over the years. The Corbett school board has failed to respond or, in my opinion, do its due diligence in many matters important to Corbett and has remained mostly silent behind the recommendations of the Superintendent(s). This site went online in late 2010 to document some of these areas.
“Cynically, many administrators and teachers must prefer to be left alone to do their best work, rather than be badgered and “advised” by parents. …. If the alternatives are indifference or opposition, indifference must be preferred.” – Randy Trani in his book Fallacies of Education. Read here for more.
As someone that has followed along closely for many years, at root is the question of whether or not the school’s administration ( past and present ) and our public school board has actually worked to solve our budgetary problems within the law OR if these financial problems have been allowed to bring us to a place where, in crisis, the educational model they all most strongly believe in can be taken to a larger scale at the expense of our community and small school.
