A little about our community:
Knappa School District is located in a rural setting along Highway 30 just 12 miles east of Astoria and 90 miles from Portland. The school district serves the unincorporated communities of Knappa, Svensen, Brownsmead, and Burnside. The community is family oriented and represents about 2000 citizens. The proximity to the Columbia River provides year around recreational opportunities to the area.

The area has long been noted as a fishing and forest products center. Georgia-Pacific’s Wauna Mill is located within the district’s boundaries and employs approximately 1000 area residents. Clatsop Community College in Astoria is the favorite destination for KHS graduates, but many students also enroll in other state system universities and private schools in and out of Oregon.

Qualified applicants may complete the attached application and submit along with a resume and three letters of recommendation to Diane Barendse barendsedi@knappak12.org.
