Logos Charter School Rewards Success
Medford’s three-year-old Logos Public Charter School is giving teachers a 25 percent increase in compensation and benefits plus some teachers will receive bonuses based on students’ improved test scores.
Eight school days have been added to the academic year and rising enrollment has the school board searching for a larger campus.
Covering some of the added expense is an increase of $604 in the state’s per-pupil funding.
Logos manages its own budget, separate from the Medford District, although the district receives a per-student payment for administrative costs associated with charter school operations. The school is funded with public dollars.
About 860 children and their parents living in Jackson and parts of Josephine Counties meet with Logos’ full and part-time 52 teachers once a week. Students take classes on campus, but the majority of their coursework is done at home or, for some high school students, in college classrooms.
