Speaking before the Silver Falls School Board at its Nov. 10 meeting, Eugene Field first-grade teacher Jennifer Wiken emphasized a sense of urgency to move students and staff out of the building.
“We’re exhausted and we are done. It’s not fair to the kids,” Wiken said. “How much longer do we have to do this?”
The defeat of the $24.9 million bond measure has left community members in the Silver Falls School District – both for and against the bond – discussing why the bond failed and what should happen next.
