Annual Parent Survey

Please take a few moments to complete the BSD Annual Parent Survey! Our goal is to ensure that every member of our school community feels welcomed, valued, and informed, so it is important for all parents/guardians to complete the survey.

A link to the 2021 Annual Parent Survey will be sent to all valid parent email addresses via School Messenger on Sunday, May 16. The deadline to participate is Wednesday, June 2.

Encuesta Anual de Padres de Familia

¡Tómese unos minutos para completar la Encuesta Anual de Padres de Familia del Distrito Escolar de Beaverton! Nuestro objetivo es asegurar que todos los miembros de nuestra comunidad escolar se sientan bienvenidos, valorados e informados, por lo que es importante que todos los padres o tutores completen la encuesta.

Se enviará un enlace a la Encuesta a todas las direcciones de correo electrónico válidas para padres a través de SchoolMessenger el domingo, 16 de mayo de 2021. La fecha límite para participar es el domingo, 2 de junio de 2021.

TAG Testing for this Spring: Changes

Due to recommendations from the Oregon Department of Education, students in grades K-4 will not be tested for TAG identification this school year. We will use all the information from teachers and parents we gathered this year for testing in the fall.

TAG testing for grades 5-8 is already in process and will be completed this spring.

If you have any questions, please contact the FLEX Online TAG Facilitator by email: Jennifer_rafanan@beaverton.k12.or.us
