Welcome to the Pendleton School District!

The Pendleton School District always strives to keep its facilities in good condition for the best educational experience for Pendleton students. Voters were asked to consider a General Obligation Bond on the Nov. 5, 2013, general election ballot, and the PSD would like to thank Pendleton voters for passing this bond with nearly 65% of the vote! The PSD will now move forward with its plans to update and improve facilities, and the community will be informed along the way. Be sure to look for opportunities to provide feedback coming soon!

The District has developed a Master Facilities Plan outlining some of these facilities improvements, and the following quick links will provide you with the information you need to know as Pendleton looks to the future of its schools.

Dave Fishel, project manager for Pendleton School District’s $55 million construction projects, says planners must consider changes in teaching methods, technology and security requirements while designing an early childhood center at Hawthorne School and twin elementary schools to replace Washington and Sherwood.

Quick access to digital information is critical, he said. Schools must provide robust wireless networks and places to charge laptops and iPads, though outfitting schools with a seamless technological infrastructure is in some ways a moving target, Fishel said.

“No one really has the silver bullet right answer,” he said. “Technology is evolving so quickly.”

Security is another growing concern. All of Pendleton’s schools will be fitted with card key locks, surveillance cameras and a system that can lock every door with a push of a button.

Friday, April 18, 2014

The Pendleton School District will recommend Brian Broaddus as the new head varsity basketball coach at Pendleton High School. Broaddus replaces David Norton, who resigned earlier this year.

Broaddus comes to PHS from Bonneville High School in Idaho Falls, Idaho, where he coached since 2012. At Bonneville, Broaddus led his team to a third place state finish and a league title, and was named league Coach of the Year. He is a graduate of Oregon State University 1995 and earned his MAT in 1997 in Physical Education and Fitness. Broaddus will move to Pendleton with his wife and daughters.

'My wife and I are excited to live, work, and raise our girls in the wonderful community of Pendleton," Broaddus siad. "As a coach, I feel like PHS is the premier basketball job in Eastern Oregon. I am honored to have the opportunity to lead the basketball program with passion and integrity."
