NEW! School Supplies Program 18-19 sch yr.

posted Jun 7, 2018, 11:08 AM by Englewood Elementary

Englewood PTC (Parent Teacher Club) took a survey and had a big positive response to allowing the school to purchase all the classroom supplies and asking parents to pay $25 (per student) to cover the cost of supplies.  

Today's newsletter has the details printed on the back and the receipt for families to fill out when they make their payment.  There are multiple ways to pay that hopefully will help families who may not being able to pay the entire amount up front.  

The idea is to benefit families so they don't have to go out and try to find all the supplies and to benefit teachers because they will get just what they need.  Please see the attached letter and call the office if you have any questions.  

Thank You for Saying YES for Our Schools! | ¡Gracias por decir SÍ a nuestras escuelas!

As we head into summer break, we want to say “Thank you” to our community for approving the 2018 bond! Because of our community’s support, Salem-Keizer Public Schools will be able to make improvements, expansions and/or renovations all across the district. Improvements planned include additional space to serve our community’s growing enrollment as well as expanded career-technical (vocational) spaces, more space for science education, safety and security improvements and seismic safety upgrades.

Five schools are scheduled to begin construction in 2019 – Gubser Elementary School, Judson Middle School, Waldo Middle School, McNary High School and North Salem High School. All work approved under the bond is planned to be finished in about five years. For more information about projects funded by the 2018 bond, click here.

At many schools, construction is likely to take place during the school year. Schools, architects and the district’s bond program management team will work together to minimize disruption of the educational environment caused by construction. However, it’s important for parents, students and staff to be aware that school operations will be different during construction. Our commitment to student safety and success will be unchanged during construction.

We would once again like to extend our appreciation to the Salem-Keizer community for supporting students and schools by approving the 2018 bond!

Antes de partir para las vacaciones de verano, le queremos dar las gracias a nuestra comunidad por ayudar a promulgar el bono del año 2018. Debido al apoyo de nuestra comunidad, las Escuelas Públicas de Salem-Keizer podrán hacer mejoramientos, expansiones y/o renovaciones por todo el distrito.  Los planes para los mejoramientos en las instalaciones incluyen los siguientes: Crear espacios para el aumento de matrícula y también expandir los espacios de educación técnica profesional (vocacional); añadir más espacio para educación de ciencias; mejoramientos a los sistemas de seguridad y actualizaciones de reforzamiento sísmico.

Se ha programado primero a las siguientes cinco escuelas en las cuales se dará comienzo a los proyectos de construcción durante el año 2019: Escuela Primaria Gubser, Escuela Intermedia Judson, Escuela Intermedia Waldo, Escuela Preparatoria McNary y Escuela Preparatoria North Salem.  Se calcula que todo el trabajo planeado bajo el bono será terminado en aproximadamente cinco años. Si desean obtener más información acerca de los proyectos financiados por el bono del año 2018, por favor consulten la página web https://bondinfo.salkeiz.k12.or.us/bonddocuments/.

En muchas escuelas, puede que la construcción se realice durante el año escolar.  El personal de la escuela, los arquitectos y el equipo de gestión del programa de bono del distrito trabajarán juntos para minimizar las interrupciones por motivo de la construcción en los ambientes educativos.  Sin embargo, es importante que los padres, los estudiantes y el personal estén conscientes de que las operaciones diarias serán diferentes durante la construcción. Nuestro compromiso a velar por la seguridad y el éxito estudiantil no cambiará durante el transcurso de los proyectos de construcción.

De nuevo, nos gustaría extenderle nuestra gratitud a la comunidad de Salem-Keizer, por apoyar a los estudiantes y escuelas al aprobar el bono del año 2018.

posted Mar 13, 2018, 11:04 AM by Salem Keizer


Salem-Keizer Public Schools (SKPS) has officially joined SafeOregon, a confidential tip line that gives our kids, parents, schools and communities a confidential way to report safety threats or potential acts of violence.

Salem-Keizer Public Schools has a sophisticated and proactive intervention system in place for timely interventions. These include the SKPS Office of Behavioral Learning, the Office of Safety and Risk Management, and our Threat Response System that offers step-by-step protocols on preventing and controlling potentially dangerous situations.

The SafeOregon tip line adds an additional resource to ensure students and staff have a confidential avenue for reporting and bolsters SKPS’ relationship with law enforcement. This program is run and managed by the Oregon State Police and has proven to prevent acts of violence.

“Since the SafeOregon began its statewide program, we’ve seen it grow as a resource for the communities we serve,” said John Van Dreal, SKPS Director of Safety and Risk Management Services. “We know that what keeps our children safe is an open line of communication, and SafeOregon provides that communication in a confidential way.”

All tips reported by members of the Salem-Keizer community– including parents, students and employees – in regard to school and student safety will be closely investigated by the Oregon State Police and SKPS. The safety of our students, staff and volunteers is without question, our highest priority.

We encourage all parents to download the SafeOregon App on their phones, and their child’s phone as well. Individuals may also report a tip by calling or sending a text to 844-472-3367 anytime. Tips also can be emailed to tip@safeoregon.com. For more information, go to www.safeoregon.com.

Oficialmente las Escuelas Públicas de Salem-Keizer (SKPS, por sus siglas en inglés) participarán en SafeOregon, una línea directa, informativa y confidencial que ofrece a los estudiantes, padres, escuelas y comunidades un medio confidencial para presentar denuncias de amenazas a la seguridad o posibles actos de violencia.

En este sistema se incluyen los diferentes departamentos de SKPS: el Departamento de Aprendizaje Conductual, el Departamento para la Gestión de la Seguridad y Prevención de Riesgos y nuestro Sistema de Respuesta a Amenazas, el cual contiene un método paulatino y detallado para prevenir y controlar situaciones potencialmente peligrosas.

La línea informativa SafeOregon es un recurso adicional que garantiza a los estudiantes y al personal escolar un medio confidencial para hacer denuncias y fortalece la relación de SKPS con las agencias policiales. Este programa lo dirige y lo gestiona la Policía Estatal de Oregon y ha demostrado prevenir actos de violencia.

“Desde que SafeOregon inició su programa a nivel estatal, hemos visto que es un recurso que se ha expandido en las comunidades a las que servimos”, dijo John Van Dreal, Director del departamento para la gestión de la seguridad y prevención de riesgos de SKPS. “Sabemos que lo que mantiene a nuestros niños seguros es una línea abierta de comunicación y SafeOregon ofrece esa comunicación de una forma confidencial”.

La Policía Estatal de Oregon y SKPS investigarán cuidadosamente todas las denuncias hechas por los miembros de la comunidad de Salem-Keizer, los padres, los estudiantes y los empleados con referencia a la seguridad en las escuelas o la seguridad de los estudiantes. La seguridad de nuestros estudiantes, personal y voluntarios es sin duda nuestra mayor prioridad.

Instamos a todos los padres a que descarguen la aplicación SafeOregon en sus teléfonos celulares y también en el teléfono de su estudiante. Las personas también pueden presentar una denuncia al llamar o al enviar un mensaje de texto al 844-472-3367 en cualquier momento.

Parent Involvement Policy

posted Jan 19, 2017, 11:54 AM by Englewood Elementary

Educating students at Englewood Elementary School is a collaborative effort involving the student, the teacher and the parents working together to achieve high student performance. Parents can participate in their child’s education and receive information in the following ways:

Open parent meetings are held monthly on the second Thursday of every month. Meetings will be held 6-7 p.m. The Title 1 objectives will be explained and the previous year’s student performance shared during the Back to School Night parent meeting in September. Specific information on individual student performance will be shared at the parent conferences in November. The January or February meeting will solicit parent feedback about the Parent Involvement Policy and the Parent Compact; an evaluation of parent involvement activities will be discussed at the end of the year. 

2.     Parents will be notified of their children’s academic progress through: progress reports (November, March, June); Parent Conferences (November, March); and informal contacts throughout the year as needed.  Parents can contact teachers via email or phone, and are welcome to set up appointments before or after school to meet with them.

Parents will receive individual SBAC assessment results, and the interpretation of those results, through a district mailing.

A description of grade-level expectations and curriculum standards will be presented to parents in the fall.

By November 30, a School-Parent Compact will be presented to parents and signed by the teacher, parent and student. This compact specifies the means by which the school and the parent will build and sustain a partnership to help the student achieve high academic standards.

Parents are encouraged to volunteer in the classroom or special events. Parents can even help from home by preparing instructional materials or in other ways. Parents are encouraged to contact the teacher or the office for volunteer opportunities.

Information regarding the school and activities will be presented in the school newsletter as well as on our webpage.  Englewood’s website may be accessed at http://englewood.salemkeizer.net/

       For any new requests from students who wishes to attend a school other than his or her assigned school starting January 2017, must submit an In-District Transfer request (IDT) between November 1 and 30, 2016.

Some restrictions and requirements apply to the Electives IDT request.

     IDT request forms can be picked up at any school office, and must be completed and returned to the student's assigned school during the application date window. There is no guarantee a transfer request will be approved.

    Students attending school on an approved IDT are not eligible for bus service. Parents must provide transportation to and from school.

 

In-District Transfer Changes

posted Feb 22, 2016, 9:02 AM by Englewood Elementary

In an effort to better allow schools to serve students, balance class sizes, staff accurately and align transfer windows, we are changing the In-District Transfer process to include two distinct windows for transfers at the elementary level.  A similar process and change occurred at the secondary level two years ago.  Elementary transfer requests will now be accepted March 1- March 30th for the transfer to occur at the beginning of the following school year, and November 1- November 30 for the transfer to occur after Winter Break.  Due to the shortened notice of the change we will extend the spring transition window this year only from March 1 – May 30th.  If you are considering a transfer to another Salem-Keizer school for next year, please submit your request to your home school before the May 30th deadline to be considered for approval.

Thank you for your partnership and for sharing your children with us every day,

SKSD
