Update 10/5/23


As you may know, ASK relies on grants from the Oregon Department of Education, and while we have secured funding to sustain our services, there has been an unexpected delay in the distribution of these funds. Consequently, our staff is currently on temporary furlough, with their working hours reduced to zero until the funds become available.

We will continue to run Open Saturdays at The Education Center on Pearson Field ( Unfortunately, due to the uncertain nature of the delay, we can’t be sure exactly when the rest of our full programming will resume.

We ask for your understanding and patience as our staff and Board of Directors assess our strategic plans and program offerings. While we’re eager to resume our full schedule, ensuring financial stability is crucial to continuing to provide you with exceptional experiences.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to our Board of Directors at
