Former Corbett superintendent and charter director will speak to board
A public hearing on a proposed charter school in the Reynolds School District is scheduled for 6 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 24, at Fairview City Hall’s chambers.

Bob Dunton, the former director of Corbett Charter School and former superintendent of the Corbett School District, will give a presentation on The Egan School, Rockwood.

The proposed Rockwood lease agreement hinges on charter approval from the Reynolds Schools District, where the property lies.

On Wednesday, the public will have an opportunity to comment during the charter hearing. Documents on proposed charter may be found at www.reynolds.k12.or.us/district/school-board.

On Oct. 8, the board is expected to vote on the proposal at its board meeting

New K-12 Charter School Coming to Rockwood, Project To Begin April 2014, Completion 2015

Starting in April, demolition will begin to make way for construction of a new three-story, 53,000 square foot building for the Sunrise Rockwood Charter School at 19034 SE Stark Street in West Gresham.

The new 700 student K-12 school will have twenty-eight classrooms, a student commons, administrative offices, auditorium, food services, plus covered and open outdoor play areas.

Rockwood Community Development Corporation, the project's developer, says the Corbett Charter School Association has agreed on a lease to create the new school, which will border E. Burnside and S.E. Stark Street along the MAX Blue Line.

The success of the nationally acclaimed Corbett Charter School, which shares school buildings inside the Corbett School District, has created a waiting list of new students (mostly from east Multnomah county) wanting to enroll in the highly successful program. High demand and lack of space is one of the reasons for building the new school.

Boys and Girls Club to manage Gresham youth center for ailing Police Activities League

PAL Center, NE 172nd Av, Gresham OR

The Boys & Girls Club of Portland Metropolitan Area has agreed to take over management of the Gresham youth center run by the struggling Police Activities League of Greater Portland, the groups announced Friday.

After-school activities and services to continue in West Gresham
The change will take effect on March 1, according to a press release. The groups hope to keep the center open for regular hours during the transition, but warned there may be a temporary closure.

The announcement comes less than two weeks after the Portland PAL board warned it might have to shut the doors of the youth center in Gresham. Last-minute donations helped keep the doors open, but PAL’s board concluded this week that it could not continue on its own. The board opted to find someone else who could continue providing the after-school activities and services that it has offered to youths, said PAL board chairman Mark McGinnis.

"The Boys & Girls Clubs' commitment to serving the community is consistent with our mission, and we look forward to their carrying on PAL's work of providing opportunities for law enforcement and youth to have positive, meaningful interaction through the Clubs," McGinnis said in a statement.

Local youth center to cease after school activities

Without additional funding, the Greater Portland Police Activities League Program said Tuesday that it will be forced to close its centers in Portland and Gresham on Friday, Feb. 15.

Beaverton’s PAL center is expected to stay open for now.

A Tuesday press release said “the ongoing reduction of governmental funding and the economic times have placed the organization in the position to need to make this difficult decision.”

“It is with great sadness that this wonderful program may have to close,” said PAL board member Cliff Madison. “It has made a great impact in the lives of many kids in our community and has taken down many of the walls between Cops, Kids and Community. It will be missed.”

The closure will include both the Bud Monnes PAL Center (NE 172nd Av) in Gresham and the PAL Office at the Portland Police Bureau’s North Precinct.
