Hello Tigers!


There are few, if any examples that illustrate the Raleigh Park community better than Jog-a-Thon. Simply, ALL are welcome, ALL are included, and we ALL give what we can!


To be clear, I'm not talking about money. While money is an undeniably tangible byproduct of this great day, what is most impressive is to watch students set goals for themselves. To have parents schedule time away from the nitty-gritty to support their children. To have Mr. Curl wear his most fashionable track suit. To witness students physically give all they can, knowing their success is so much more than the number of laps they ran. To understand and appreciate the countless volunteer hours that go into making the day memorable for our students.


To this end, I want to extend my sincere appreciation to our JAT co-chairs, Whitney Flanagan and Leslee Schader, for everything they gave to shepherd this endeavor. Simply, an undertaking of this magnitude takes an army of willing and dedicated volunteers. Both Whitney and Leslee would readily admit they could not do this without the help of so many others. But, like much of what we do at Raleigh Park, it is not possible without someone willing to step up, take ownership and lead the way. Well done!


My best,

Brian

  • Since our last newsletter, we had a wonderful Walk + Roll to School Day! Many thanks to our Walk+Roll coordinator, Maria Sabo, and all other volunteers who made this possible!


  • If you have a change in plans at the end of the day that necessitate a change from the routine, we respectfully ask you communicate these changes before 12:00p whenever possible. While we know unexpected issues can/do come up, advanced warning is always appreciated; running notes to teachers the last 15-30 minutes of the school day creates an additional burden on top of an already busy time in the office.

Let Your Voice Be Heard: 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. Beaverton could be able to access an estimated $34 million per year through a state application process.


School districts will be required to apply for funds. Districts must demonstrate engagement of the community in a needs assessment process prior to the application for funds. The needs assessment includes the District’s existing Continuous Improvement Plan (CIP) and an expanded public engagement process with multiple and diverse stakeholders.

Districts are allowed four broad uses for the grant proposals:


  1. Increasing instructional time
  2. Addressing student health and safety needs
  3. Increasing adults/decreasing class size
  4. Expanding well-rounded learning opportunities.


Programs must also meet students’ behavioral and mental health needs and increase academic achievement as well as reduce disparities among student groups.


Phase I community engagement will seek input on what is working and what improvements are needed. Your voice matters! We welcome your perspective and opinion. Take our BSD Needs Assessment Survey!

Ley de ÉxitoI Del Estudiante

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.


Los distritos tienen cuatro usos generales para las propuestas de subvención:


  1. Incremento del tiempo de instrucción
  2. Abordar las necesidades de salud y la seguridad de los estudiantes.
  3. Aumento de adultos/disminución del tamaño de las clases
  4. Expandir las oportunidades de aprendizaje.


Los programas también deben de satisfacer las necesidades de salud mental y de conducta de los estudiantes y aumentar el rendimiento académico, así como reducir las disparidades entre los grupos de estudiantes.


La fase I de participación comunitaria buscará aportes sobre lo que está funcionando y las mejoras que se necesitan. ¡Su voz importa! Agradecemos su perspectiva y opinión. ¡Por favor complete nuestra encuesta de Evaluación de Necesidades del Distrito Escolar de Beaverton!

Lice, Lice, Baby...

Close your eyes and listen...


Listen to that all-familiar bass strumming in your head. Sing along with me...


Lice, lice, baby...

Lice, lice, baby...


School is back in session and yes, there are reported cases of head lice. It is also my understanding there may be cases in which we are unaware. While lice is always present in our community, and all other communities, the overall number of REPORTED incidents per classroom is typically small.


What do we know about head lice?

  • Head lice are tiny insects about the size of a sesame seed. Lice do not jump or fly; they do not have wings. They live close to the human scalp. The eggs, also called nits, are tiny, teardrop shaped eggs are attached to the hair shaft. Nits often appear like dandruff but cannot be removed easily or brushed off. An itchy head is a common symptom of lice. Although lice can be annoying and icky, lice are not dangerous and are not known to spread disease.


Who is affected by head lice?

  • Head lice are not related to cleanliness or hygiene. Head lice are mostly spread by direct head-to-head contact—for example, during play at home or school, slumber parties, sports activities or camp. Less often, lice are spread via objects that have been in recent contact with a person with head lice, such as hats, scarves, hair ribbons, combs, brushes, stuffed animals or bedding.


What to do if you suspect your child has head lice?

  • If you think your child has head lice, it’s important to talk to a healthcare provider or pharmacist to discuss the best treatment approach for your family. Please contact your child’s school, as they have information regarding treatment and prevention of head lice.


As a parent, I know any reported case of lice within the school presents some feelings of uncertainty and helplessness with regards to their child's exposure. Even the most vigilant and cautious families can find themselves confronted face to face with the issue. Our goal as a greater community, and in partnership with each other, is to destigmatize the occurrences of head lice and ensure it is reported.


As noted last year, the District's practice has changed in response to recommendations from Oregon Department of Education, the Oregon Health Authority and the Oregon School Boards Association. Specifically, if a student is found to have lice, they may stay at school. While lice may be irritating and a nuisance, it is not considered a reportable, medical condition or a reason to exclude a student from school.


If a case of lice is found at school, our practice is to counsel the student on avoiding head to head contact and not sharing personal items before going back to class. We subsequently make a phone call home and educate our families on the issue, inclusive of available resources to treat lice.


In the mean time, we look for opportunities in and out of the classroom to educate and remind students, specifically how we manage and minimize co-mingling and/or sharing of personal items (coats, backpacks, etc.).


What we don't/can't do:

  • Mandate the "Mr. Curl Haircut" (although I'm happy to do so for free)
  • Send "lice letters" home
  • Classroom and/or school-wide lice screening, as they have not demonstrated a significant effect on the incidents at school
  • Apply insecticides to classrooms or other school-related areas where students congregate
  • Quarantine a student and/or their possessions
  • Medicate or otherwise treat students at school
  • Otherwise violate confidentiality of affected students and families


Some important things to remember about lice:

  • Counter to popular opinion, school is not a common place for the transmission of lice. It is much more common for lice to be "shared" via head to head contact, among family members, overnight guests, playmates who spend a large amount of time together, daycare facilities, and common use of personal items, blankets, pillows, etc.
  • If/when spread at school, head-to-head contact typically comes in the form of hugs.
  • Hygiene and personal cleanliness has no bearing as to whether someone gets lice
  • Lice can only crawl; they can neither jump or fly from person to person
  • Lice can only live 1-2 days off the head; it is highly unlikely students would come to a classroom after a weekend in which lice are living and breeding
  • If you treat lice with over the counter solutions, it does not mean the treatment is over; continued vigilance is important until every nit (egg) is gone


What to do if you suspect your child has head lice?

  • PLEASE CONTACT RALEIGH PARK. Not only do we need to be aware for the greater good, but we have information regarding treatment and prevention
  • Talk to a healthcare provider or pharmacist to discuss the best treatment approach for your family

Unscheduled Early Dismissal - What’s your plan?

During an unscheduled early dismissal, schools will use the emergency closure plan you indicated for your student in enrollment and enrollment verification. During the online process, you were asked to indicate what the student should do in case of emergency or early school closure. You were only allowed to choose one option. The three options were:

  • Pick up by Parent/Emergency Contact/Daycare

  • School Bus to Home/Neighbor/Daycare

  • Walk/Ride Bike/Drive to Home/Neighbor/Daycare


If you don’t remember what you selected, you can check by logging into ParentVUE and clicking on “Student Info” in the left hand navigation. Your selection will be displayed at the bottom of the page under “Other Data.”


If you wish to change this plan, contact Raleigh Park, or reference the Back to School Verification.


*Please note, if you choose to update your information online, the information is not updated in the student information system until the school has accepted your verification. This process may take up to two weeks to be completed. The fastest way to update your information is to call the school. Please make a note of the option you selected and keep the information somewhere handy, in the event of a future early school closure.

PHASING OUT OF 6 - 8 GRADES AT SPRINGVILLE AND RALEIGH HILLS

The District has been evaluating the best way to provide a common middle school experience for all of our students. With this in mind, the District will transition Springville and Raleigh Hills from a K-8 model to a K-5 model.


In making this decision, we took into account the history of our K-8 program, research on the K-8 model, staffing, facilities and budget. For example, at Springville, we are out of classroom space. But the most important factor is the ability to provide the best comprehensive education for our middle school students.


K-8 schools are currently staffed and supervised in the elementary school model, meaning the curricular programs are based on elementary core requirements, rather than middle school requirements. The District is working on a common comprehensive middle school experience, which would include more consistent course offerings for students in 2020-21. Comprehensive middle schools also offer more counseling services and support for transition to high school and post-secondary success. This level of support is something that we cannot provide in the K-8 model due to staffing and budget. In addition, the ability to schedule special education and English language learner services is more complex at K-8 schools with nine grade levels, as opposed to three grade levels at middle schools.


Timeline and Transition

This year, the options application window opens on October 14 and closes on December 6. During that period, we will be accepting applications for students to attend 6th, 7th, and 8th grades at Springville and Raleigh Hills for the 2020-21 school year.


In 2020-21, we will only be accepting applications for 7th and 8th grades to attend Springville and Raleigh Hills during the 2021-22 school year. This means there will be no 6th grades at Springville and Raleigh Hills in 2021-22.


In 2021-22, we will only be accepting applications for 8th grade to attend Springville and Raleigh Hills during the 2022-23 school year. This means there will be no 6th or 7th grades in 2022-23.


Springville and Raleigh Hills will complete the transition and open the 2023-24 school year as K-5 schools.


This will leave one K-8 school in the Beaverton School District, Aloha-Huber Park (AHP) K-8, which is currently a dual-language program and does not accept applications from students outside the AHP boundary. AHP will remain as a K-8 while the District evaluates options for ensuring those students will be able to continue their dual-language pathway into middle school.


We understand that you will have questions about this decision and transition. We want to make it clear that this decision is part of a larger, district-wide picture regarding comprehensive middle schools. We encourage you to reach out to your current K-8 principals. We have also established a webpage on the Springville and Raleigh Hills websites with an FAQ.

ELIMINACIÓN PROGRESIVA DE LOS GRADOS 6º A 8º EN LAS ESCUELAS SPRINGVILLE Y RALEIGH HILLS

El Distrito ha estado evaluando la mejor manera de proporcionar una experiencia común para todos nuestros estudiantes de las escuelas secundarias. Con esto en mente, el Distrito hará la transición de Springville y Raleigh Hills de un modelo K-8 a un modelo K-5.


Al tomar esta decisión, tomamos en cuenta la historia de nuestro programa K-8, la investigación sobre el modelo K-8, la asignación del personal, las instalaciones, como también el presupuesto. Por ejemplo, en la escuela Springville, ya no tenemos espacio en nuestros salones. Pero el factor más importante es la habilidad de proporcionar la mejor educación integral para nuestros estudiantes de secundaria.


Las escuelas K-8 cuentan actualmente con personal y supervisión basado en el modelo de escuelas primarias, lo que significa que los programas curriculares de éstas se basan en los requisitos básicos de una escuela primaria, en lugar de los requisitos de una escuela secundaria. El Distrito está trabajando en proporcionar una experiencia común a nivel de escuela secundaria, que incluiría cursos más consistentes para los estudiantes en el año escolar 2020-21. Las escuelas secundarias integrales también ofrecen más servicios de asesoramiento y apoyo para la transición a la escuela preparatoria y al éxito de los estudios superiores de los estudiantes. Este nivel de apoyo es algo que no podemos proporcionar en el modelo K-8 debido a la asignación de personal y al presupuesto. Además, la habilidad de programar servicios de educación especial y de aprendizaje del idioma inglés es más compleja en las escuelas K-8 con nueve grados académicos, en comparación con tres grados en las escuelas secundarias.


Fechas importantes y periodos de transición

Este año, el periodo de solicitudes empieza el 14 de octubre y termina el 6 de diciembre. Durante este, aceptaremos solicitudes para estudiantes que asistan al 6º, 7º y 8º grado en las escuelas Springville y Raleigh Hills para el año escolar 2020-21.


En 2020-21, solo aceptaremos solicitudes para los grados 7º y 8º para asistir a Springville y a Raleigh Hills durante el año escolar 2021-22. Esto significa que no habrá 6º grado en Springville y en Raleigh Hills en el 2021-22.


En el 2021-22, solo aceptaremos solicitudes para el 8º grado para asistir a Springville y a Raleigh Hills durante el año escolar 2022-23. Esto significa que no habrá 6º o 7º grado en el 2022-23.


Las escuelas Springville y Raleigh Hills completarán la transición y abrirán el año escolar 2023-24 como escuelas K-5.


Después de este proceso la única escuela en el Distrito Escolar de Beaverton con grados K-8 será Aloha-Huber Park la cual actualmente es una escuela con un programa de lenguaje dual y no acepta solicitudes de estudiantes fuera de su límite de asistencia. Esta escuela permanecerá como K-8 mientras que el Distrito evalúa las opciones para garantizar que esos estudiantes puedan continuar su enseñanza de lenguaje dual en la escuela secundaria.


Entendemos que usted tendrá preguntas sobre esta decisión y transición. Queremos dejar en claro que esta decisión es parte de una imagen más amplia en todo el distrito con respecto a las escuelas secundarias integrales. Lo animamos a que se comunique con los directores actuales de sus escuelas K-8. También hemos establecido una página en los sitios web de Springville y Raleigh Hills donde adjuntamos esta carta como también una sección de preguntas frecuentes.
