Inclement Weather and Snow Route Information

All the information you need regarding inclement weather in the Beaverton School District is found here.


With the above link, you can access the procedures for 2019-2020 as well as Snow Route information.


Snow Routes


The Transportation Department creates snow routes to facilitate student pickup/drop off on days when road conditions may be hazardous due to snow and/or ice. Some regular bus stops will not be available for students and in some cases, entire routes may have to be cancelled. We make every effort to provide transportation when possible and, in some instances, create new bus stops on main roads to pick up students residing in neighborhoods with difficult access for buses.


Transportation Service to Hazeldale will be limited when the District is operating on snow routes.


Routes will fall into one of three categories:


  1. Snow Route: Modifications are made to the regular route and specific stops are listed.
  2. No Snow Route, Driver Follows Regular Route: Stops & times remain as normal.
  3. Route Cancelled: This occurs because the regular stops are not accessible when snow or ice is present. In some cases, a stop may be moved from one route to another for efficiency. If your route is cancelled, please check other snow routes for the closest stop with service.

We apologize for any inconvenience you may experience when inclement weather conditions cancels or modifies transportation service. For specifics on limited service, please locate your school here.

New community partnership opens a world of reading!

The Beaverton School District and our Washington County Cooperative Library Services (WCCLS) partners are expanding access to library materials and resources via the public library Youth Access Card (YAC) for BSD students who do not already have a public library card. This special library card allows students to check out up to five print books or audiobooks from any WCCLS library without any overdue fines. It also provides access to ebooks, digital audiobooks, and other online library resources that can be obtained directly from their BSD Chromebooks or other device.


Using the Sora app, students can link their WCCLS library cards to the BSD digital library so they can browse and borrow BSD and public library ebook/audiobook collections in one place. Rolling distribution of the YAC cards to BSD schools will begin starting in November and continue through January. For more details about these cards, please see the the BSD webpage about the partnership.


¡Nueva asociación comunitaria que abrirá un mundo de lectura!

El Distrito Escolar de Beaverton y los Servicios Cooperativos de Bibliotecas del Condado de Washington (WCCLS) están ampliando el acceso a los materiales de la biblioteca a través de la Tarjeta Juvenil (Youth Access Card o YAC) para los estudiantes del Distrito Escolar de Beaverton que aún no tienen una tarjeta para la biblioteca pública. Esta tarjeta especial les permite a los estudiantes sacar hasta cinco libros impresos o audiolibros de cualquier biblioteca de WCCLS sin que reciban multas por regresar los materiales tarde. También proporciona acceso a libros electrónicos, audiolibros digitales y otros recursos de la biblioteca en línea que pueden obtener directamente desde sus Chromebooks del Distrito u otro aparato electrónico.


Al usar la aplicación digital Sora, los estudiantes pueden vincular sus tarjetas de la biblioteca pública de WCCLS a la biblioteca digital del Distrito Escolar de Beaverton para que puedan buscar y tomar prestados libros electrónicos y audio libros del Distrito y de la biblioteca pública en un solo lugar. La distribución de las tarjetas YAC a las escuelas del Distrito comenzará en noviembre y continuará hasta enero. Para obtener más detalles sobre estas y la asociación entre el Distrito y WCCLS por favor visite el sitio web del Distrito.

Report Cards are Going Paperless

The Beaverton School District is transitioning to electronic report cards for all students. The electronic report cards will be accessed through ParentVUE (mobile and desktop). If you have not set up your ParentVUE account, you will need to do that by January 2020.


There are resources and guidance on how to set up a ParentVue account. Please view the FAQ for instructions on setting up your account. There are several benefits to moving to paperless report cards. You will be able to view grades days after grading days, rather than wait up to two weeks for a report card to come by mail or in your child’s backpack. In addition, moving away from paper is environmentally friendly and cost-effective for the District.


Please contact your school if you need help setting up or accessing your ParentVUE account or need assistance with a printed copy. We will be sharing more information about this transition in the coming weeks.


Las boletas de calificaciones se enviarán electrónicamente y no en papel

El Distrito Escolar de Beaverton está haciendo la transición a las boletas de calificaciones electrónicas para todos los estudiantes. De ahora en adelante usted podrá obtener las boletas de calificaciones electrónicas a través de la aplicación ParentVUE (por celular y computadora). Si todavía no ha configurado su cuenta de ParentVUE, deberá hacerlo antes de enero de 2020.

Tenemos recursos e instrucciones sobre cómo configurar una cuenta de ParentVue. Por favor consulte la sección de Preguntas Frecuentes donde podrá encontrar esta información.


Hay varios beneficios de solo recibir las boletas de calificaciones de manera electrónica. Usted las podrá ver de tres a cuatro días hábiles después de los días de calificación, en lugar de esperar hasta dos semanas para recibir una boleta de calificaciones por correo o en la mochila de su hijo. Además, deshacerse de la opción de papel ayuda al medio ambiente y es mas económico para el Distrito.


Por favor comuníquese con su escuela si necesita ayuda para configurar o entrar a su cuenta de ParentVUE o si necesita ayuda con una copia impresa. Estaremos compartiendo más información sobre esta transición en las próximas semanas.
