February is Forecasting Month
On February 12 during Community, students will begin the forecasting process for the 2020-21 school year. Students will receive updated transcripts, forecasting forms, and instructions on how to enter their course selections in the online forecasting portal. The online forecasting portal only works with a computer or Chromebook and will not work on a mobile device. After this session, students should review the online Academic Planning Guide found on the Westview website under Academics>>Academic Planning and work with their families, counselors, and teachers to choose their courses. Once their paper forecasting form is completed, students can complete the online forecasting process and choose their first and alternate courses. The due date for online forecasting is February 26, 2020.
February 20, 2020 is Curriculum Night at Westview. It is a great time to visit with teachers about course options. [Put details or links here about Curriculum Night]
On February 26, the paper forecasting forms are turned in and students complete their online forecasting in Community class. It will be important for students to bring their charged Chromebooks/computers to this class to complete the forecasting process.
Students are expected to enroll in and complete the classes selected during the forecasting season. Staffing and the Master Schedule are determined by the courses students select during forecasting. Therefore, after February 26, 2020, students will not be able to request changes to their course selections.

Pictures from the Week
Smarter Balanced Test Update
Last spring, students in grades 3 – 8 and 11 in the Beaverton School District and throughout Oregon took the state tests (Smarter Balanced) in English Language Arts and Mathematics.
In addition to content standards, these assessments are designed to measure critical thinking, problem solving and communication skills. The test results provide you, our schools, our district and the state with information about how well we are preparing our students for their next steps including college and career readiness.
Our students will take these tests once between January and June 2020. House Bill 2655 permits parents and adult students to annually opt-out of Oregon’s statewide summative tests in English Language Arts and Math by submitting a form to the school the student attends. The school shall provide any student who is exempted from a state test with supervised study time while other students are testing.
Here is a link to additional information: https://www.oregon.gov/ode/educator-resources/assessment/Documents/Opt-Out_Form_2019-20.pdf

Enrolling Juniors Now
FROM OUR PTO
Dear Westview Community,
I have enjoyed serving as your PTO President for the past six years. At the end of the school year my youngest graduates! This means we are truly in need of volunteers to join the PTO in leadership positions. We currently have all positions open except President, Secretary and Treasurer. Please read through our descriptions of the various jobs we have available. If you’ve always wanted to do something to help out the school without having to be on campus during the school day, we have opportunities for you! None of these are a large task, individually – but when just three parents are handling all of these alone, it is a lot.
We are looking to fill all of these open positions. If you would like to join us in supporting Westview staff, students, clubs, sports and activities, please read through the attached job descriptions. Then join the Executive Board for our meeting on Wednesday, December 15 , at 6 o’clock PM in the Career Center at Westview, if you would be interested in any of these positions. The General PTO meeting will follow immediately after at 6:30 PM. We always do the meetings back-to-back on the third Wednesday of each month throughout the school year. There are no meetings in December or June.
We expect to vote on adding a Communications Person at this meeting, as multiple people have expressed interest in this job. All other positions are completely open so please come join us, ask questions, get support along the way, and enjoy doing something to help support our school and community!
PTO Support Drive
Westview High School PTO
2019-2020 Support Our School Drive
While many students at Westview are involved in sports and activities, well supported by our Westview community, every one of our students needs our support to graduate and succeed in the future. We try not to take away from all of our clubs, sports, and other groups, by hosting car washes, bake sales, or dine out nights; instead we ask that you consider contributing once per school year.
The PTO receives requests from different programs and teachers throughout the year, and we do everything we can to fulfill all of these requests - from graduation mentor program support, to the science department, to the arts. We have helped teachers afford supplies for the classroom and assisted in funding to support field trips. With the end of the calendar year fast approaching, please consider giving today.
Our suggested contribution is $20/student, but please give anything you can - every dollar helps!
We are a non-profit 501 (c)(3) organization and your donation may be tax deductible. Please consider making a contribution today! Make checks payable to: "Westview PTO" no amount is too small! Mail to: Westview High School * ATTN: Westview PTO * 4200 NW 185th Ave. * Portland, OR 97229 or Contribute right now online
Electronic Report Cards
The Beaverton School District is going green by providing electronic report cards for all students. This will begin with the grading period that ends later this month. The report cards will be accessed through ParentVUE. If you have not set up your ParentVUE account, you will need to do that soon.
There are resources and guidance on how to set up a ParentVUE account on our website. Please view the FAQ for instructions on setting up your account. Parents may contact their school if they need help setting up or accessing their ParentVUE accounts. They may also contact their schools if they need assistance obtaining a printed copy after notification the e-report cards are available.
There are several benefits to moving to paperless report cards. Parents will be able to view report cards within days of the grading day, rather than weeks. In addition, moving away from paper is environmentally friendly and cost-effective for the District.
Report Cards Are Going Paperless
The Beaverton School District is transitioning to electronic report cards for all students. This upcoming Progress period will be the last time we will be printing and mailing paper progress reports/report cards. The electronic report cards will be accessed through ParentVUE (mobile and desktop). If parents/guardians have not set up their ParentVUE account, they will need to do so 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 an account.
There are several benefits to moving to paperless report cards. Families 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 their child’s backpack. In addition, moving away from paper is environmentally friendly and cost-effective for the District.
Please encourage parents/guardians to contact their school if they need help setting up or accessing their ParentVUE account or need assistance with a printed copy. We will be sharing more information about this transition in the coming weeks.
Student Survey February 3-June 5.
Each year the District surveys students, staff, and parents to gather information for planning, program evaluation, and assessment of progress on the District's Strategic Plan.
The student survey takes about 20 minutes during the regular school day. The data gathered from the survey are anonymous; your child will not put his/her name or other identifying information on the survey. Like other surveys, results will be presented only about groups. No individual data will be reported.
Student surveys of middle and high schools include three optional questions for students to identify their gender, ethnicity / race, and sexual orientation. These questions allow for additional levels of analysis of questions on inclusion, safety and bullying.
Your child may skip questions or stop filling out the survey at any time. Refusing to participate or withdrawing from the survey does not affect your child's grades or class standing in any way. If you or your child does not want to participate, your child can read or do some other activity while his or her classmates complete the survey.
A copy of the survey is available from your child's school under the Annual Surveys tab and is posted at https://www.beaverton.k12.or.us/departments/accountabiity/research-reports
After reviewing the survey, if you do not want your child to participate, please notify Westview High School at 503-356-3020
Encuesta Anual de Estudiantes
Cada año, el distrito lleva a cabo encuestas para los estudiantes y el personal con el fin de obtener información para la planificación y la evaluación del programa así como del progreso del Plan Estratégico del Distrito.
La encuesta de estudiantes toma aproximadamente 20 minutos durante el día escolar. La información que obtengamos de la encuesta es anónima; su hijo no incluirá su nombre o cualquier información de identificación en la encuesta. Al igual que otras encuestas, los resultados que se presentan son sólo acerca de los grupos. No se proporcionará información de su estudiante.
Las encuestas del estudiante de las escuelas de secundaria y preparatoria incluyeron tres preguntas opcionales para los estudiantes identificar su género, grupo étnico/raza, e inclinación sexual. Estas preguntas permiten niveles de análisis adicionales en cuanto a la inclusión, la seguridad y la intimidación.
Su hijo puede no contestar las preguntas o dejar de contestar la encuesta en cualquier momento. El negarse a participar en la encuesta o no terminar de contestarla, no afecta las calificaciones o rango de su hijo. Si usted o su hijo no quieren participar, su hijo puede leer o hacer alguna otra actividad, mientras que sus compañeros de clase completan la encuesta.
Una copia en blanco de la encuesta, está disponible en la escuela de su hijo y se encuentra publicada en
Después de revisar la encuesta, si usted no quiere que su hijo participe, por favor notifique a Westview High School at 503-356-3020
