Public Invited to ODE Feedback Session

School district administrators and staff, students, parents and community members from across eastern Oregon are invited to attend a community feedback session about education in Oregon on Wednesday, January 18 at 6:30 PM at Washington Elementary School in Pendleton, located at 1205 SE Byers Avenue. The event is FREE and open to the public.

This event is part of a series of feedback sessions being organized by the Oregon Department of Education across the state for people to give input on Oregon’s State Plan to improve student learning and determine how we can best support our schools to meet the needs of each and every student. ESSA (the Every Student Succeeds Act) will be discussed. According to the ODE information, “ESSA provides all states and schools in the country with a chance to be innovative, and to strengthen our public education system by providing teachers with more support and districts with more flexibility to address the unique needs facing their communities.”

The public is encouraged to attend to learn more about ESSA, contribute to a discussion on the factors supporting student success and get questions answered by state education leaders.

For more information about ESSA, visit http://www.ode.state.or.us/go/ESSA.

Students Invited to Technology Expo in March

Do you know a student interested in technology? Students across eastern Oregon are invited to the IMESD's annual STEP Technology Expo on Thursday, March 9, 2017 at Eastern Oregon University in La Grande. This event is FREE and open to all students currently enrolled in 8th through 12th grades who attend one of the IMESD's component school districts.

This year's Expo is from 8 AM to 4:30 PM at EOU. Transportation will be provided to students from their school district (details are currently being determined).

The Expo is an opportunity for students to immerse themselves in hands-on technology fun and learn more about school-to-career opportunities in the technology field. Representatives from regional companies will attend to visit with students about jobs in their areas.

Students must register themselves to attend the Expo by visiting http://step.imesd.org. For more information, they can ask at their school front office or ask their school STEP representative. Posters and flyers should be available at their schools. Students can also follow STEP on Twitter and Instagram - @EOstepITup and #stepexpo17.


Information for Parents about School Delays/ Closures

With the arrival of winter weather, we would like to remind parents/families about our district policy. If school is delayed or closed, the information is posted by 6:00 AM on:

  • District Website
  • Automated calling system
  • Regional media outlets (newspaper online, radio, Portland & Tri-Cities tv stations)

If no notice is posted, school is running on regular schedule.

The location with the most accurate information to confirm a delay/closure is on the district website. On occasion, media inaccurately reports school delay/closure information. In the event that schools must close early, notification is given using the same method.

If you have questions about the delay/closure policy, please call the District Office or your child’s school. Thank you.


See the office for details

Ione Community School is closed Monday, January 9th.
