Woodburn High loses small school funding

Posted June 7th, 2010 in Uncategorized by steve

Woodburn High School’s experiment in Small Schools, as described in Boys, has reached a turning point. The switch from comprehensive high school to four themed high schools, each with under 400 students, began in the 2005-2006 school year, using funding from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. With the end of the 2009-2010 school year, the high school has also reached the end of its grant money. Starting next year, the small school experiment carries on without any extra funding.

The Woodburn Independent is running a series of articles about the high school’s change of operations here:
