Welcome To Our District

District Hires New Agriculture Teacher

The Ione School District has hired a new Agriculture Science teacher for the 2018-19 school year. Maggie Collins will start on July 1, 2018, and will also be the FFA advisor at Ione High School.

Collins, a graduate of Heppner High School, is currently finishing her Master’s of Science degree in Agriculture Education at Oregon State University. She earned her Bachelor of Science degree from OSU in June 2017. An honor roll student, Collins has been participating in OSU’s Leadership Academy since May 2016 and is currently the vice president of the school’s Agriculture Education Club. Collins has worked for the U.S. Forest Service and as a farm laborer in Lexington. In Heppner, she was the rodeo queen of the Morrow County Fair and Oregon Trail Pro Rodeo Association in 2011-2012.

Collins said she is excited to return to the area to be near her family and to start her career as an educator. “The uniqueness of this position will allow me to hone my teaching style and grow as an educator. I do not believe that there is a community more supportive of its agriculture program than Ione. I am ecstatic to have the opportunity to work with such amazing people in both the workplace and the community,” Collins said.

Rollie Marshall, principal of Ione schools, said the district is looking forward to having Collins join their teaching team.

Release Date

Month of February

Big changes in how we will handle school delays due to poor weather conditions.

-If our weather calls for us to have a delay in the start of school this year, we will be using a 3 hour delay instead of a 2 hour delay, due to the poor rural road conditions not improving quickly enough in the mornings. 

This means school for students would begin at 11 am. Staff would report at 10:30 am.
