The Superintendent of Bend La Pine Schools hope state lawmakers follow the Governor's direction from his "State of the State" address.  Ron Wilkinson was the Oregon Superintendent of the Year recently and says he's hear a lot of dramatic budget stories across the state, from big district like Beaverton to small districts in very rural areas.   

 

"REMOTE DISTRICTS FACE A CHALLENGE ANYWAY- JUST BECAUSE OF THE COST OF DELIVERING SERVICES- . SAY YOU HAVE 9 KIDS IN A HIGH SCHOOL - THEN WHEN YOU REDUCE FUNDING- AS WE HAVE IT MAKES IT EVEN MORE DIFFICULT TO MAINTAIN THE OPPORTUNITIES FOR KIDS."

 

Even though Bend La Pine is a richer district compared to others, he says he had to cut 70 teaching positions during the Great Recession.  Sisters and Redmond have been hit very hard, having to cut staff and school days.
