Salem-Keizer Board of Directors Votes to Approve Boundary Adjustments

The Salem-Keizer Board of Directors voted 5-2 last night to approve the boundary adjustment proposal brought forward by the Boundary Review Task Force. Directors Blasi and Lippold opposed. The boundary adjustments will go into effect for the 2019-20 school year and only apply to incoming kindergarten through third-graders, sixth-graders and ninth-graders. Students entering grades four, five, seven, eight, 10, 11 and 12 will not be impacted by the boundary adjustments. Transportation will be provided both for students in the new boundaries and those who are not impacted by the boundary adjustments and will be continuing in their existing schools. Students enrolled in special programs will continue in those special programs.

Families impacted by the boundary adjustments will receive personalized letters in their preferred language in the coming days detailing the transition. Maps are available at schools to review the 36 areas of Salem and Keizer impacted by the adjustments.

The Boundary Review Task Force is a 45-member volunteer committee comprised of representatives from the special education community, PCUN, Mano a Mano, Salem/Keizer Coalition for Equality, Salem-Keizer NAACP and all geographic regions.

Thanks to the community’s passage of a bond in May, SKPS will invest $619.7 million in Salem and Keizer in the form of school expansions, renovations and improvements over the next five to six years. Boundary adjustments will shift students away from crowded conditions and into these new, improved learning environments.

¡Alerta de trafico! ¡Se aproxima el inicio de los proyectos de construcción!

Estamos en espera de la entrega de algunos edificios portátiles y de equipo de construcción, los cuales pueden llegar cualquier día. No tenemos la fecha exacta del inicio de las obras de construcción, pero deseamos informarle acerca de los acontecimientos que se aproximan con anticipación.

La entrega de estos edificios portátiles temporales y la preparación del emplazamiento de estos causaran algunas interrupciones en el vecindario. De antemano, nos disculpamos por el ruido y la congestión vehicular que inevitablemente darán por resultado estas obras de construcción. Estamos trabajando para reducir las interrupciones cuanto nos sea posible.

Les hemos planteado a nuestros contratistas que en medida de lo posible eviten las horas de mayor desplazamiento vehicular cerca de la escuela, por ejemplo, cuando se dejan y recogen los estudiantes de la escuela.

La fase inicial del trabajo de construcción establece las bases para las obras de construcción más importantes que iniciaran en cuanto sea seguro hacerlo. ¡En cuanto más pronto podamos empezar con las obras de construcción, más pronto podremos terminar el traba-jo!

Recuerden que por razones de seguridad este verano y el próximo verano el plantel estará cerrado debido a las obras de construc-ción. Todo el plantel será una zona donde se requerirá usar cascos de seguridad por el tipo de construcción que se llevará a cabo.

Agradecemos su paciencia y su comprensión durante las obras de construcción. ¡Los proyectos de mejoramiento planeados para la Escuela Preparatoria North Salem serán sorprendentes y nos complace compartir esos resultados con ustedes!

Atentamente, La dirección de la Escuela Preparatoria North Salem.
