I missed Wildcat Day. Can I do any of it online?
Missed your picture? We have another picture day on September 16.
Do we need to pay the Chromebook fee again this year?
Yes. Students will not be able to pick up a new Chromebook this year until the $20 fee is paid. (This fee may be waived for students with free/reduced lunch status.)
Senior students have first priority for parking spaces. There are only 396 parking spots available. With that in mind, for the upcoming school year, the following procedures will be in place for the assignment of parking spaces:
- Parking in the student parking lot for the first 2 weeks or so will not be assigned and will be first come, first park.
- Starting on Wednesday, September 4, any Senior who would like to have a parking pass must fill out the following form and turn it in to Mr. Westhora in the front office or during both lunches. The form must be submitted by Friday, September 6 before school is over. Only Seniors with a valid driver's license and information about the make/model/license number for any car they might drive to school can apply for a parking pass.
- Starting on Tuesday, September 10, all Seniors who submitted their parking application form will then be allowed to purchase their parking pass and will be assigned a parking spot during both lunches. The cost of a parking permit for this school year will be $20, which is in line with other high schools in the area. All parking permits will be attached to a specific numbered parking space.
- Starting on Thursday, September 12, depending on how many Seniors get an assigned parking spot, Juniors may submit a parking agreement form for a possible chance to get a spot as well. Juniors have until Friday, September 13 at the end of the school day to submit the form to Mr. Westhora in the main office or during both lunches. If there are not enough spots for all Juniors who apply, there will be a lottery selection process.
- Starting on Tuesday, September 17, all Juniors who submitted their parking application or were selected from a lottery process will then be allowed to purchase their parking pass and will be assigned a parking spot during both lunches.
- The start of enforcing assigned parking spaces will occur on Wednesday, September 18 after parking spaces have been assigned to Seniors and Juniors. Until that date, student parking will be on a first-come first-served basis, in areas that are specifically designated for student parking.
- Sophomores are not eligible for a parking space.
- Starting on September 18, a waiting list will begin for valid drivers who wish to have a spot in the near future.
Parking permits and spaces may be revoked by Westview at any time, for reasons including but not limited to: poor attendance, violation of student conduct policies, and others.
Parking and Traffic Flow
We want to make you aware of our current parking situation at Westview High School. Most neighborhoods surrounding Westview now have restricted parking on their streets. They have signs posted on their streets that say "No Parking Except By Permit." Please do not park in their neighborhoods to avoid ticket fees and/or potential towing.
Traffic flow before and after school can be chaotic. We would like to minimize the chaos as much as possible by establishing clear routes for drop-off and pick-up locations. We greatly appreciate your patience and understanding. The true secret to arriving to school on-time and with less traffic is arriving early.
The traffic route on the North-side is for drop-offs, and the other traffic route is on the South-side for student drivers. On the South-side, remember that students are parking and then walking to the building. We do not want any drop-offs happening here. Please do not drop off students on the South side. All Drop-offs should only happen on the North Side. Please follow the route on the map.
Parents and Students, please be kind, respectful, and follow all traffic and parking rules when driving and parking on school grounds.
For those who are wanting to purchase a parking permit, more information coming soon.
When do I get my class schedule for next year?
It takes all summer to build schedules for 2,400 students. Students should be able to look at StudentVue by August 20 (at the latest) to see their schedules. In special cases, a request for schedule correction form may be submitted anytime between August 21 - September 16 for the following reasons:
A class needed for graduation is not in the schedule
A class that was already taken, or a class where the prerequisite has not yet been taken, is in the schedule
There is a gap in the schedule (for example, no period 3 class)
This process is intended to correct mistakes. It is not intended to address a student changing his or her mind about a class that was previously requested. Students should only submit ONE request for correction form if a correction is necessary, and they should continue to monitor StudentVue to see if the correction request was approved or denied. If StudentVue doesn’t change, then the request was denied.

AVID Volunteer Tutors Needed for the 2019-2020 School Year
AVID Volunteers are needed in all secondary schools (middle schools, options schools and high schools).
AVID=Advancement Via Individual Determination
The Beaverton AVID Program teaches students the skills and behaviors necessary for academic success in high school, college and beyond.
- AVID volunteers (we call them 'tutors') work with small groups of students under the supervision of a teacher.
- Volunteers are trained to use specific strategies that help develop students’ critical thinking, literacy, and math skills.
- Volunteers are needed mainly on Tuesdays & Thursdays, and times vary depending on the school and volunteer's availability.
- Training and ongoing support provided.
- Community or Parent Volunteer Application and Background Check required.
For more information contact: BSD-AVID-Tutor@beaverton.k12.or.us
We are a community that inspires students to believe in themselves and successfully
advocate for their future goals.
