Well hopefully I can get some helpful feedback. My family and I are looking to relocate from California to either the Salem area or the Albany area. Can anyone provide feedback to me as to which has the best school district? I have my master's degree in Health Administration with a background in Accounting. Any ideas on jobs up here. Thank you and I look forward to hearing from anyone.

Amy

Default One more question

Ok one more thing to ask. What part of Salem is the safest. Looking at the map trying to pin point where we should rent. I just saw an add for a place in Turner. Is that close to Salem and if so what part? Thanks again.

Amy

Few to no jobs. Sunnyside/Turner is just south of Salem

If you rent in Turner your kids will go to Turner schools. They are a different school district and with the bulging of the Salem school district there are no guarantees you could transfer. I don't think "best" applies to many school districts in Oregon. They are all budget strapped.

North Albany and South Salem have good solid schools.

Jobs will be tough, but I'd start with Salem Hospital, maybe Silverton Hospital. You can check and see if the state has any openings since Salem is the capital.

If you're considering Salem, you really need to have a job lined up before you move.

Oregon has been on a spending binge for the last decade or so and is now facing a $3B revenue shortfall. I would predict that Salem will be especially hard hit since it's the sate capitol and relies heavily on public sector spending.
