Ken Martinez - Nominated for National Federation of High Schools Coach of the Year

Congratulations to Coach Ken Martinez (picturedwith his daughters) from Aloha High School and the Oregon Athletic Coaches Association (OACA). We would like to congratulate you on being selected as the Oregon nominee for the National Federation of High Schools (NFHS) 2019-20 “Coach of the Year” award for Girls Cross Country.

Each year the OACA selects one coach from each of the 10 boys and 10 girls sports offered in our state. Each state award winner then becomes eligible for Section 8 awards competing against coaches in their respective sport from Washington, Montana, Idaho, Alaska and Wyoming. Section 8 winners then compete for National Coach of the Year against representatives from the other 7 sections of the United States. Oregon has been very well represented, winning numerous Sectional and National Awards over the past 20 years. The following criteria was used in the selection process: “Nominees must exemplify the highest standards of sportsmanship, ethical conduct and moral character and carry the endorsement of the respective state high school association. We want them to be not only successful in their respective sports but also as individuals in their schools and communities. Longevity in coaching is also an important consideration.”

Ken Martinez can usually be found on campus in K4. He is a fantastic Language Arts Teacher, our Head Cross Country Coach and Assistant Track Coach.

Oregon’s Student Health Survey

The Beaverton School District is continuing our participation in Oregon’s Student Health Survey (SHS). The SHS is a survey sponsored by the Oregon Health Authority Public Health Division and the Oregon Department of Education. The survey will gather information about health risk behaviors of students in grade 11. Our District uses these anonymous results to learn more about:

  • Student health and safety
  • Student mental and behavioral health
  • School climate and culture

The SHS will take students 30 minutes or less to complete and will be administered through Canvas in Advisory between November 3-24. Students will be given information on support resources prior to taking the survey. Go to this link for more information and Opt Out Form.

Do you have Chromebook Insurance?

This year, all students in grades K-12 have the opportunity to check out a district-owned device for use at school and at home. Anticipating that all students will get a district-owned device, the district adds a fee of $20 to students’ Online Payment accounts (maximum fee of $60 per family per school year) to enroll them in the Damage Loss Protection Program. This fee is waived for families who qualify for the free or reduced meal benefits program and have completed the Permission to Share Form. Students need to pay the assigned fee prior to any damage or loss claims to be eligible for the Protection Program coverage and no later than 30 days after they begin school.

Students may choose to decline coverage, but this is not recommended, because the family is assuming full responsibility for any costs due to damage, loss or theft. These costs could be as much as $300 per incident, regardless of how it happens. More information here . Parents will have the option to opt in or opt out of the Protection Program during the Online Verification process that parents are required to complete in ParentVue each fall.

If your student has received a Chromebook or iPad from the Beaverton School District. We highly recommend getting the Student Device Damage and Loss Protection program. If you opt out of this coverage, you will be responsible for any costs due to damage, loss or theft. These costs could be as much as $300 per incident, regardless of how it happens.

If you opt in to this coverage, the program covers the device loaned to the student against all accidental damage, theft, vandalism, or loss for one (1) school year. This program also covers the first incident of loss or damage of a charger and stylus.

The fee is waived for families who qualify for the free or reduced meal benefits program and have completed the Permission to Share Form. Please complete this form and Opt In to the program.

More information about the Damage and Loss Protection Program, including what it covers, can be found on the Student Device Resources page on the BSD website. If you would like to change your selection to opt in to the Damage and Loss Protection Program, please long into your ParentVUE, Family Updates and New Student Enrollment. From the drop down select 1. Fall Verification and Family Updates. 2. Begin Process. It will take a day for the fee to show up in your Online Payment account.
