Oregon City School District: Register your kindergartener
Oregon City School District officials say it's time to begin thinking about registering kids for kindergarten or first grade for the 2021-22 school year.
All children living in Oregon City or nearby unincorporated areas like Beavercreek, Redland and Jennings Lodge are eligible for free public school in the district. Children who will be 5 years old by Sept. 1 will enter kindergarten, and those who are 6 at that time will enter first grade.
Oregon City School District students have the opportunity to participate in a Spanish dual-language program, Todos Unidos, or Everyone Together. The program is available for all students entering kindergarten and first grade, via a lottery system. District officials say the program will allow students to learn a second language in a similar manner to the way they have learned their first one.
