Both programs reflect high academic expectations and are available for sixth, seventh, and eighth grade students. Click the link below to read more and complete the interest form.
This major grant has been awarded by our Camas Educational Foundation to John Condon of Skyridge and Mistalyn Batten of Liberty and made possible through a 50/50 partnership between CEF and our Camas School District technology department. Each teacher will receive a syncing cart with 35 ipad minis and one Macbook. The lab will enable students to use the equipment for a variety of learning applications as well as take assessments and quizzes and receive immediate feedback. Thank you to our Camas Educational Foundation and supportive community patrons!

Thanks to all the voters in Camas who stepped up and voted to uphold our standards for our students, and the community in which we live. While we only needed a simple majority to win the levy elections, it warms the heart to see the overwhelming support.
Election Day is around the corner, and several Camas Schools will be ballot drop box locations on February 12: Helen Baller, Dorothy Fox, Prune Hill, and Camas High School.If you didn’t receive the district’s levy informational brochure, click here to download it.
