NEWBERG, Ore. (KOIN) — The Newberg School District has had some major changes and trials in the last year.

Whether it be new school board members or finding a new superintendent, the district has been in national headlines surrounding what is deemed “controversial” at school.

What followed?

Lawsuits, a superintendent firing, and the search for a new leader for the Newberg School District. To know more details, take a look at the timeline above.
