Oregon lawmakers try to fight the scourge of heavy backpacks

"According to the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission, more than 7,000 emergency room visits each year are due to backpack-related injuries," it reads, "and, in 2010 alone, physicians' offices, clinics and hospital emergency rooms treated nearly 28,000 strains, sprains, dislocations and fractures related to backpacks."

School Board Director Election

If you are interested in becoming a Stanfield School District Board of Education Director, each school site and the district office have Candidacy packets that include instructions on how to file, forms needed, and information. We currently will have three (3) seats up for election.

Board members are elected for four-year terms. You must be a registered voter and you must have lived in the district for one year immediately preceding the election. School district employees elected to serve on the board must give up employment with the district to sit on the board.

Statewide campaign aims to get more people to run for school boards

Each year, hundreds of volunteers from across the state raise their hands to coach, mentor, teach and campaign for their community’s schools.

But when it comes to volunteering for Oregon’s school boards, fewer hands get raised.

According to the Oregon School Boards Association, nearly three-quarters of the seats for school boards, education service districts and community college boards were uncontested during the last round of board elections in 2015.

New System for Reporting School Safety Concerns

Finding Words in Paint: How Artists See Dyslexia

We know lots of facts about dyslexia: It’s the most common reading disorder. It changes the way millions of people read and process information.

But we know much less about how it feels to people who have it. How it shapes your self-image, your confidence and how people see and react to you.

And so I reached out to some really creative people — artists who have dyslexia — to talk about this.

Supreme Court Considers How Schools Support Students With Disabilities

The U.S. Supreme Court heard arguments on Wednesday in a dispute that advocates describe as the most important case involving public school special education in three decades.

At issue is whether federal law requires public schools to provide more than the bare minimum in special services for children with disabilities. With millions of children qualifying for these services, the court’s ruling could have a profound effect.
