Student Test Results in ParentVUE

State test scores will be available in ParentVUE. The Testing Information tab in ParentVUE has links to additional information about your child’s scores. If you need assistance activating a ParentVUE account, please contact the front office at 503-356-2530.

Scores are available on both the desktop and mobile app. Students whose parents/guardians do not have an active ParentVUE account will be mailed English Language Arts and Math test results over the summer. Students with at least one parent/guardian with ParentVUE access may request a printed report by contacting Rayna Flye by email at rayna_flye-fairman@beaverton.k12.or.us.

Rent Assistance Program

The Oregon eviction protections are set to expire at the end of June. This means renters will need to pay back rent that's still due. The state will start taking applications today 5/18/21, for additional rental assistance through the Oregon Emergency Rent Assistance Program. People are eligible if at least one person in the household had a financial impact from the pandemic (a lost job, decrease in income), and their household income is at or below 80% of the area's median income (about $77,000 for a family of 4 in the Portland metro, or $51,000 in rural communities).

Tenants can be approved for up to 12 months of past-due rent, and three months' upcoming rent. The payments will go directly to landlords, property owners, and utility companies.

The money will be allocated based on need, so everyone who applies for the program will go through a review process.

Assistance is offered to all renters, regardless of citizenship or immigration status.

Here's a link to the application and information on how to apply:


For more information, contact Ruth Iliaifar at 503-356-5073 or ruth_iliaifar@beaverton.k12.or.us.
