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.

Bond Measure---APRIL 18

posted Apr 2, 2018, 1:09 PM by Sarah Grimmer   [ updated Apr 12, 2018, 10:34 AM ]

PLEASE COME TO OUR AREA BOND MEETING ON APRIL 18, FROM 6-7:30 AT SOUTH SALEM HIGH SCHOOL.

018 Proposed Bond On May 15 Ballot

The School Board has finished its work on a bond package and has referred it to the May 15 ballot for the community to consider.

Before finalizing the bond, the Board heard feedback through a community survey, through the Community Facilities Task Force and through listening sessions with staff and community members held in every high school neighborhood. The Board twice asked staff to revise the bond package to make sure it aligned with the feedback they received and still addressed the needs of facilities.

Highlights of the proposed bond include:

· Increasing safety and security, including seismic safety of schools

· Adding/expanding space to relieve crowding and prepare for future enrollment, including general education classrooms and space for music programs

· Adding/expanding space for career-technical (vocational) education at all six traditional high schools as well as Roberts High School

· Adding/renovating science labs at middle and high schools

The proposed bond package totals $619.7 million and if passed by voters in May, is estimated to increase the current property tax levy rate by $1.24 per $1,000 of assessed value. If the bond does not pass, the additional tax would not be levied and the listed projects would not be completed. The Community Facilities Task Force reviewed all funding methods available to the district and recommended the School Board place a general obligation bond on the ballot for voters to consider. The district would receive an $8 million grant from the state if the bond passes.

To be eligible to vote in the May election, you must be a registered voter and reside in the district. To register or to update your voter registration, please visit the Oregon Secretary of State’s website: http://sos.oregon.gov/voting/Pages/registration.aspx?lang=en

You must be registered by April 24. Ballots will be mailed to voters on April 25. For more information about the proposed bond measure, please visit www.bondinfo.salemkeizer.org.

Salem-Keizer Public Schools Joins SafeOregon Confidential Tip Line

posted Mar 13, 2018, 1:06 PM 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.
