years as an administrator
in South Lane,” Ingman
wrote in an email to par-
ents last Wednesday.
“The last 7 years, as a
principal at Kennedy and
CGHS in South Lane, have
been some of the most re-
warding of my profession-
OPAL
al life.”
Ingman started his time
at Cottage Grove High
School in 2000 as a social
studies teacher. In 2006, he
became Dean of Students
at CGHS and the following
year was named assistant
principal at South Albany
High School. In the winter
of 2011, he then became
the principal at Albany Op-
tions School for the rest of
the year.

In 2012, he made his
way back to the South
Lane School District by
becoming principal at Al
Kennedy High School. In
the fall of 2017, Ingman
was back at CGHS — but
this time as the school’s
principal.
Now, he’s headed to Eu-
gene.

Eugene School District.
I have lived in Eugene
nearly all my life. Both
my wife and I attended
high school in Eugene. In
fact, she is a 1988 Sheldon
graduate,” Ingman wrote
in a statement for the Eu-
gene School District. “My
three sons have all attend-
ed Eugene schools. I have
always longed to give back
to community that I feel
I owe so much to. Now I
have that opportunity.”
Ingman will continue to
work at CGHS through the
end of June.
“Leaving Cottage Grove
High School was not an
easy decision to make,
but one that is appropriate
for both my personal and
professional life,” Ingman
wrote in a letter to CGHS
parents.
A tentative timeline that
Ingman supplied to The
Sentinel indicates that
SLSD posted the position
of prinicpal last week and
will close the position at
the end of the month.
Interviews are scheduled
for the start of June with a
recommendation to super-
intendent Larry Sullivan to
be made by June 14 with
the school board to ap-
prove the hire on June 17.
the greater well-being of
the city.
“If the people on the
board and the people in
the district aren’t aware of
the community in which
they live and operate and
the world in which their
kids are living every day
and are going to become
adults, we become the
schools as a place you
dump your kids at 8 in
the morning and pick
your kid up at 5 in the af-
ternoon — and hate or ig-
nore the rest of the year,”
said Mort. “That’s never
been a great model and
it’s become an infeasible
model.”
Schwartz, who did not
respond to interview re-
quests from The Sentinel,
also has stressed the value
of community.
“I believe strongly in
civic responsibility and
community service. As
an educator my primary
work is with children and
families; this is the pop-
ulation I feel moved to
serve,” Schwartz writes in
her Lane County Voters’
Pamphlet bio.
According
to
her
candidate filing form,
Schwartz’s
education
background
includes
working as a school ad-
ministrator. Additionally,
she has worked on non-
profit boards including
Lane County Commis-
sion for Children and
Families.
than $1 million over the
five years from 2020 to
2025, a number Brown
says has been consistent
since the levy was first
voted on.
“It’s been pretty vital,”
he said. “We’ve been able
to continue offering mu-
sic K-12, we’ve been able
to continue with full-time
P.E, we’ve been able to
keep electives as a whole
— vocational-type elec-
tives.”
The district has about
245 enrolled students and
employs a staff of about
40. Renewing funding is
said to be necessary to
retain staff and classes at
their current state.
“We’ve been able to of-
fer our students a good,
well-rounded education
and have courses that
they’re interested in,”
Brown said. If the measure
does not pass, the school
district anticipates having
to make cuts as the budget
is reduced by $200,000 or
more with each consecu-
tive year.
“It would most likely be
staff of some sort in some
way,” said Brown, antici-
pating that electives would
likely be cut as well.
Because the levy is slat-
ed to go into effect for the
2020-21 school year, the
May 2019 Special Elec-
tion is not the district’s last
chance to pass the mea-
sure.
“We didn’t have to do
it this election cycle, but
we thought we would,”
Brown said.
Providing the measure
does not pass, the district
can try another election
cycle.
“It
definitely
has
helped our district and
it will definitely help us
continue with the direc-
tion that we’re going,”
said Brown. “I hope the
voters will want to sup-
port it because I think it’s
great for the kids and our
community.”
