Population Increase Information
August 2012. A “pre-application for population increase” meeting was held with Multnomah County. It turns out that the Corbett Charter School was not legally established with the county. This means that the Corbett community, as a whole, did not have an opportunity to attend a public hearing, hear or make comments about the increase of enrollment/population of the district or benefit from the analysis of a traffic study, as we would have… had we legally established the Charter with the County.

CAPS ( the newly refurbished Springdale School ) The district paid for this with an interest free million dollar loan and then approved the additional $650,000 loan that helped finish it early this year vs. the phased approach originally agreed to. These loans are to be paid back by the additional out of the area student revenue that we were allowed to bring in under HB3681, as of January 2012.
