Under  Construction at the Marion Center

A significant construction project at WESD's Marion Center will run from May through October.  Regular meeting facilities are unavailable and there will be disruption impacting services and regular business. The project will include the construction of a new conference center and professionalization of evaluation areas for children and families. We apologize for the dust, noise and disruption.

WESD Announcements

    Oregon Rising is a public outreach effort about what Oregonians want for their children and their schools. At the heart of our work is the prompt to dream big. In the first phase, we ask that you describe the education Oregon students would receive, if it were up to you.

    Oregon Rising refers to one thing we find most people agree upon: When our children are successful, we are all successful. Thus, our tagline: Great Schools, Great State. Because we believe great schools are the foundation for a great State of Oregon, and a great state of our economy, our communities and our future.

    The aspirational nature of the name is intentional. You’ll note that Oregon Rising is more about dreams, and less about practicalities such as funding. The decision to largely remove the funding element from the equation wasn’t out of naiveté or because it’s not a real challenge. But we find that as soon as the conversation turns to money, aspirations are tempered. Oregon Rising wants to know not just what schools could be, but what you think they should be.
