MEDFORD, Ore. — Over the next four school years, Logos Public Charter School in Medford will expand student enrollment by 250 kids, following the approval of a new 5-year contract by the Medford School Board.

Logos said that it currently serves 1060 students, making it the largest non-virtual charter school in Oregon. The school has had a waitlist for years, but the coronavirus pandemic has only increased demand for Logos' program, growing the list to more than 500 students.

The Medford School Board on Thursday approved a gradual enrollment increase of 250 students over the next four school years — bringing total enrollment to 1160 students in 2021-2022, 1210 students in 2022-2023, 1260 students in 2023-2024, and 1310 students in 2024-2025.

“My hat's off to Logos. They have done really well," said School Board Member Cynthia Wright following the vote. "I’m excited that more people get an opportunity to attend Logos because they’ve come up with some really great results and are offering a great educational option for people that want that and I’m excited that more kids have that option.”

“In the Medford School District, we believe that ALL options should be open and hopeful for students," said Superintendent Dr. Bret Champion. "We continue to appreciate the commitment of Logos to ensure our families have options for a high quality education.”

The Logos School Board is expected to adopt this new contract at a May 17 meeting.

“Medford School District has shown it is an educational leader in options for students in Jackson and even Josephine Counties by continuing to support Logos," said Logos executive director Sheryl Zimmerer. "Charter schools in Oregon are tasked by the legislature with being innovative, more flexible, taking responsible risks around education, and to be a model and catalyst for change in traditional schools. Logos has provided an innovative and extraordinary education for thousands of students across the Rogue Valley in the last decade. With our great program and high graduation rate, we have grown into the largest non-virtual charter school in Oregon. We are excited to be able to offer our program to even more students! We are thankful for the Medford School District for seeing the value in our program.”
