State Testing Information
Because of the pandemic, the Oregon Department of Education requested a waiver from the U.S. Department of Education that would have allowed school districts to skip state testing this spring. However, the federal government denied that request. Therefore, to maintain our federal funding, the Beaverton School District must offer testing to our students. Parents and guardians have the right to OPT OUT their students from testing.
To maximize in-person instruction time for Hybrid students and to provide testing opportunities for Comprehensive Distance Learning (CDL) students, we will provide testing opportunities on Wednesdays (asynchronous learning days only) in May and June. Transportation will be provided for students who live one mile (elementary) or 1.5 miles (secondary) from their school.
To help us schedule transportation and deliver a safe and successful testing experience for every student, we need to know by April 30 whether your student will or will not participate. Please complete this form.
Debido a la pandemia, el Departamento de Educación de Oregón solicitó una exención al Departamento de Educación de los Estados Unidos que le habría permitido a los distritos escolares omitir los exámenes estatales esta primavera. Sin embargo, el gobierno federal negó esa solicitud. Por lo tanto, para mantener nuestro financiamiento federal, el Distrito Escolar de Beaverton debe ofrecer exámenes a nuestros estudiantes. Los padres y tutores tienen el derecho de EXCLUIR a sus hijos de los exámenes.
Para maximizar el tiempo de instrucción en persona de los estudiantes en modelo híbrido y brindar oportunidades para los exámenes a los estudiantes de las escuelas de Aprendizaje a Distancia Integral (CDL), el distrito brindará oportunidades para que los exámenes se lleven a cabo los miércoles (solo días de aprendizaje asincrónico) en mayo y junio. Se proporcionará transporte para los estudiantes que vivan a una milla (primaria) o 1.5 millas (secundaria) de sus escuelas.
Para ayudarnos a programar el transporte y brindar una experiencia de evaluación segura y exitosa para cada estudiante, necesitamos saber antes del 30 de abril si su estudiante participará o no en los exámenes. Por favor, complete este formulario this form

HOPE Hazeldale Meetings
Read here to learn more about what HOPE means from our PTO.
Your Hazeldale PTO Team has been working hard this year providing teacher funding for: classrooms, special grants, teacher appreciation, and trying to keep our amazing community connected and engaged amidst the pandemic. We miss being able to do big events for our entire school, but we are so hopeful for next year!
The PTO Team has been attempting to find ways to better engage more parents- we know the term “PTO” can be off-putting for many and have decided to change our name to H.O.P.E- Hazeldale-Opportunities (for) Parents & Educators. We HOPE this will help encourage more to attend our Community Meetings (we have also changed the wording from PTO Meeting to Community Meeting). Please check out our updated website. We regularly have guest speakers to our meetings as well. In March, Mr. Culbert spoke to us about Social and Emotional Learning, specifically Self Awareness and Regulation Strategies.
He is returning to our Community Meeting on May 10th at 7pm to discuss Social and Emotional Learning: Integration at Home While Supporting Your Student Over the Summer! We HOPE you can join us- Zoom
