Reedsport School District

Reedsport School District

The Reedsport School District may stop using its Braves mascot after hearing from a local tribe. Oregon law requires schools to discontinue Native American mascots unless they get the blessing of a tribe. The district has been known as the Braves for more than 50 years.

Eugene 4J Schools

Nearly $9-million in grant money will be distributed to 140 Oregon schools for career and technical training.

The 2011 Oregon Legislature voted to invest $2-million to bring back vocational programs to middle and high schools. The 2013 Legislature quadrupled the amount of grant money. In the previous round, $425,000 went to Eugene's Churchill High. Eugene 4J applied this time around, but did not get approved.
