Passing of Kim Short

It is with great sadness that we share the passing of Kim Short, art teacher at Westview High School. Kim passed unexpectedly earlier this week. He made a difference for many students.


Kim was a gifted art teacher who loved his work. He loved teaching students and helping them develop their talents. Many went on to successful artistic careers. He began his Beaverton School District career in 1997 teaching art at Sunset High School. In 1999, he moved to Mt. View Middle School to teach art. In 2003 to this year, he taught art at Westview High School. For many years, Kim also organized the annual Herzog-Meier Senior Art Show in partnership with the Beaverton Education Foundation. He will be greatly missed.


A private remembrance will be held in the spring of 2020. Those wishing to honor Kim are invited to give to The Portland Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation or his alma mater, Case Western Reserve University, Art Department.

Chromebook Insurance - Pay by October 18

Hello WHS community,

Some important dates and information regarding the technology at Westview.

➱ All WHS students are expected to have a school-issued Chromebook or a personal laptop fully charged and with them at school every day.

All families were automatically charged the Chromebook Damage and Loss Protection fee of $20.

All students are automatically enrolled in the District’s Chromebook Damage/Loss Protection Program to financially protect the student against damage or loss. The fee is $20 per school year per Chromebook, up to a maximum of $60 per school year per family. The fee is waived for families who qualify for the free or reduced meal benefits program and have completed the Permission to Share Form.

➱ Though your account was charged, you do not have insurance until the fee has been paid.

➱ On October 18, 2019, the payment option will be removed and you will no longer have the option to pay.

That means that if you checked out a device, but did not pay the protection fee, you are NOT covered for the rest of the school year. You are charged $300.00 for the device if it lost or damaged.

➱ What is NOT coverage under the Damage/Loss Protection Program.

The new Chromebooks use an USB-C power cord. If you lose or damage it, the replacement cost is $30. The new Chromebooks also have a hidden stylus in the back cover. If you lose or damage it, the replacement cost is $15.

➱ Can I opt out of a BSD supplied device?

Yes. If you choose to opt out of having a BSD chromebook, please return the device and charger to the library as soon as possible.

➱ What if you have your own device?

If you are planning to bring your own device you must agree to bring it every day to class. BSD assumes no responsibility for your device if it lost, damaged or stolen. The “Bring Your Own Device” form is available through this link: Link To Form to Decline Chromebook Damage/Loss Coverage

➱ The device requires wifi, but I do not have access to wifi at home.

Please also note that if you do not have reliable access to Wi-Fi at home, you automatically qualify to receive a free Wi-Fi hotspot thanks to a grant from the Sprint 1Million Project. The Sprint 1Million program is available to high school students. Middle school students may check out a Kajeet hotspot for the school year if needed. Applications for this free Wi-Fi program are available in the library.

Beaverton Education Foundation Phone-a-Thon October 9-17 - Answer the Call!

The 21st Beaverton Education Foundation Phone-a-thon takes place October 9-17, 2019. This annual dialing tradition provides critical funds that support innovative educational programs for students in the Beaverton community. During the five-fun-filled nights, more than 350 student volunteers make over 30,000 phone calls, dedicating their time, energy and enthusiasm to supporting BEF programs.


Last year, BEF served over 27,000 Beaverton students in grades K-12, funding 124 academic programs or projects. Through this funding from our supporters and community engagement, $390,603 was invested back into our schools.

This year our goal is to fund 130 projects impacting 30,000 students. Together, we will make it happen.


The Phone campaign and the associated mailings are the Foundations largest fundraising activity of the year. Funds raised are reinvested in a wide variety of after and summer school programs for students at all of Beaverton public schools. Please Answer the Call for our students!

Student Success Act

Speak Up 4 Student Success: HB 3427 - Student Success Act


The Oregon Legislature passed and the Governor signed the $2 billion Student Success Act (HB 3427) in Spring 2019. This is an historic and much needed investment in K-12 schools. The Beaverton School District could be able to access an estimated $34 million per year through a state application process.


School districts are required to apply for funds, and must engage their community in a needs assessment process prior to the application for funds. We will host a series of Community Conversations - Speak Up 4 Student Success in several locations throughout the BSD. Schools will also be engaging their communities in these conversations during September and October.


Please join us to talk about what student success looks like in the Beaverton School District? What is going well in Beaverton schools? What areas/services/programs could we improve?


Your voice matters! We welcome your perspective and opinion.

Speak Up 4 Student Success Community Conversations offered in English & Spanish:

· Monday, October 21, 2019, at Aloha High School, 6:30 - 8:00 p.m. (Budget Listening & Learning Session)


For more information, and to complete a BSD Needs Survey, please visit the Student Success Act webpage.


De su Opinión sobre el Éxito Estudiantil: HB 3427 - Ley de Éxito Estudiantil


La Legislatura de Oregon aprobó y el Gobernador firmó la Ley de Éxito Estudiantil de $ 2 billones (HB 3427) en la primavera de 2019. Esta es una inversión histórica y muy necesaria en las escuelas K-12. El Distrito Escolar de Beaverton podría acceder a un estimado de $ 34 millones por año a través de un proceso de solicitud estatal.


Se requiere que los distritos escolares soliciten fondos y deben incluir a su comunidad en un proceso de evaluación de necesidades antes de la solicitud de fondos. Organizaremos una serie de conversaciones comunitarias para qué de su opinión sobre el Éxito Estudiantil, en varios lugares del BSD. Las escuelas también incluirán a sus comunidades en estas conversaciones durante septiembre y octubre.


Por favor, vengan para hablar sobre el éxito estudiantil en el Distrito Escolar de Beaverton. ¿Qué está funcionando bien en las escuelas de Beaverton? ¿Qué áreas, servicios y programas podríamos mejorar?


¡Su voz es importante! Agradecemos su perspectiva y opinión.

Las conversaciones comunitarias para que de su opinión sobre el éxito estudiantil serán en inglés y español:


· Lunes, 21 de octubre de 2019 en Aloha High School, 6:30 - 8:00 p.m. (Sesión Informativa del Presupuesto)
