Salem-Keizer School Board seeks public input on zone redistricting

The board is seeking public input on zone map alternatives from Nov. 17 through Dec. 1 to help determine final board zones

Beginning Wednesday, Nov. 17 the Salem-Keizer School Board will launch a public input period to gather feedback on alternative maps for revised school board zone boundaries.

Redistricting

The update to the zone boundaries, or “redistricting,” is a process to distribute the population equally among electoral districts. This usually happens after the U.S. census, which takes place every 10 years. The census shows population growth or decrease in these areas, requiring population rebalancing to ensure equal representation. Special districts, such as school districts, collaborate with their communities on determining the updated school board zones.

Redistricting will NOT change school attendance area boundaries.

View the maps online

The board has two different proposals for redrawing the zones for the district. Proposed map alternatives for the Salem-Keizer School Board can be reviewed on the School Board Zones Redistricting webpage. You can also view the maps at the locations below.

Middle and high school bell schedules, late start days and first day of school

The start of the 2021-22 school year is right around the corner. Here is all the information you will need about bell schedules, late start days and the first day of school for middle and high school students.

Start and end times

This year, all SKPS schools will have a new bell schedule for the 2021-22 school year.

Middle school

Middle schools will start at 9:20 a.m. and end at 4 p.m., with the exception of Roberts Middle School which will start at 9:45 a.m. and end at 3:25 p.m.

High school

High school will start at 8:30 a.m. and end at 3:20 p.m., with the exception of the three locations below:

  • CTEC – 9 a.m. to 2:55 p.m.
  • Early College High School – 8:30 a.m. to 3:25 p.m.
  • Roberts High School – 8:30 a.m. to 3:25 p.m.

Programs

  • EDGE Secondary will start at 8:55 a.m. and end at 3:25 p.m.
  • The Community Transition Program will start at 7:30 a.m. and end at 2 p.m.

Late start on Wednesdays

All SKPS schools will have a late start day on Wednesday. This means that the school start time will be one hour later than normal. Dismissal time will remain at the normal time.

For example, if school is regularly scheduled to begin at 8:30 a.m. and release at 3:20 p.m., it will still be released at 3:20 p.m. on Wednesday; however, school will not begin until 9:30 a.m.

A late start day allows school staff a regular time for collaboration and planning in order to better support our students.

All bus transportation pick-up times will also be shifted one hour late on Wednesdays, with limited exceptions. Exceptions to this will be contacted directly for bus stop time adjustments. Drop-off times for all buses will remain at the normal time.

First days of school

Middle school

The first day of school for middle school will be on a “transition day.” This allows 6th grade students to get familiar with their school in a smaller setting before everyone is together.

  • 6th grade students will start on Sept. 7. They will then come back for regular instruction on Sept. 8, which happens to be a late start day.
  • 7th and 8th grade students will start on Sept 8., which happens to be a late start day.

High school

The first day of school for high school will be on a “smooth start.” This allows 9th grade students to get familiar with their school in a smaller setting before everyone is together.

  • 9th grade students will start on Sept. 7. They will then come back for regular instruction on Sept. 8, which happens to be a late start day.
  • 10th, 11th and 12th grade students will start on Sept 8., which happens to be a late start day.

If you have any additional questions regarding bell times, late start or the first day of school, please reach out to your student’s school.

Salem-Keizer Public Schools Opens Applications for EDGE | EDGE: Educación digital guiada y mejorada

When students return to school this fall for the 2020-21 school year, they will have the opportunity to select a new robust learning option. On Monday, July 13, SKPS opened applications for a new, comprehensive online academy: Enhanced Digital and Guided Education (EDGE).

Applications for EDGE are now being accepted! Students and families can learn more about the program and supports for students online, and apply now until August 24, 2020.

The Salem-Keizer Public Schools EDGE program will provide students with high quality, rigorous and well-rounded learning opportunities, including instructional supports, English language development support and more.

The district has launched a brand-new learning management system to accommodate the new enhanced learning experience for students and families. Unlike distance learning that was conducted in the Spring of 2020 due to the coronavirus closure, students enrolled in the EDGE program will pair teacher-led instruction with family-supported and independent at-home application and learning while still staying deeply connected to their school communities.

Students enrolled in the EDGE program will still be students of the school they would have attended in person for the 2020-21 school year. Throughout the year, students will continue to be connected to their school for extracurricular activities, counseling and other support systems, school celebrations and more.

Learn more about the EDGE program online at salemkeizer.org/EDGE.


Cuando los estudiantes regresen a la escuela este próximo otoño para el año escolar 2020-21, tendrán la oportunidad de seleccionar una nueva y robusta opción de aprendizaje. El lunes, 13 de julio, las Escuelas Públicas de Salem-Keizer (SKPS, por sus siglas en inglés) iniciaron las inscripciones para la nueva academia integral en línea: Educación digital guiada y mejorada (EDGE, por sus siglas en inglés).

¡Estamos aceptando las solicitudes de inscripción en el programa EDGE! Los estudiantes y las familias pueden obtener más información en línea relacionada con el programa y los apoyos para los estudiantes, y realizar la solicitud de inscripción hasta el 24 de agosto de 2020.

El programa EDGE de las Escuelas Públicas de Salem-Keizer proveerá a los estudiantes con oportunidades de aprendizaje de alta calidad, rigurosas y bien diseñadas, incluidos los apoyos instruccionales, los apoyos para el desarrollo del idioma inglés y más.

El distrito ha iniciado un nuevo sistema de gestión de aprendizaje para acomodar la nueva experiencia de aprendizaje mejorada para estudiantes y familias. A diferencia del aprendizaje a distancia que se llevó a cabo en la primavera de 2020 debido al cierre del coronavirus, los estudiantes inscritos en el programa EDGE combinarán la instrucción dirigida por el maestro con la aplicación y el aprendizaje en el hogar apoyados por la familia y de forma independiente mientras se mantienen profundamente conectados con sus comunidades escolares.

Los estudiantes inscritos en el programa EDGE seguirán siendo estudiantes de la escuela a la que habrían asistido en persona durante el año escolar 2020-21. A lo largo del año, los estudiantes continuarán conectados a su escuela para actividades extracurriculares, asesoramiento y otros sistemas de apoyo, celebraciones escolares y más.
