After a rigorous selection process, Scott Curtis was selected as the Principal for Clackamas Academy of Industrial Sciences (CAIS) in Oregon City beginning in July.

Mr. Curtis is currently the Principal at Beavercreek Elementary in the Oregon City School District where he has worked for the past eight years as a dedicated leader and educator. Before his time at Beavercreek Elementary, Mr. Curtis has had positions as a middle school principal and as a high school assistant principal. As a teacher, he taught science and mathematics, disciplines that are part of the foundation of CAIS.

“I believe CAIS is doing some of the most exciting educational innovations in the region,” said Scott Curtis. “The career-ready and highly skilled students graduating from CAIS are well prepared to enter their chosen industry and find immediate success in both the local and global workforce.”

“Clackamas Academy of Industrial Sciences is designed to prepare an innovative workforce for the future,” said Larry Didway, Superintendent. “Scott Curtis is a highly skilled, competent and passionate leader who will continue to develop CAIS into the regional model of partnership with industry that it strives to be.”

Mr. Curtis will take over for Kyle Laier, who accepted the Principal position at Newberg High School beginning next school year. The district immediately launched a search for a new principal to begin at Beavercreek Elementary School on July 1, 2016.
