Board Member Zone Boundary Changes

At the November 14, 2011 Regular Session, the Silver Falls School Board approved new board member zone boundaries.  Please see attached map.  These changes occurred as a result of district population growth and shifts over the past 10 years as determined by the most recent census.  The new board member boundaries result in nearly equal population in each of the seven zones.

It is important to note that these board zone changes do not result in any school attendance boundary changes for the District.

Oregon Diploma Talk

As many of you are aware, the State Board of Education recently raised math expectations for students in elementary and middle school to create better alignment between the lower grades and the new high school graduation requirements for math. While this increased rigor will initially result in fewer students meeting the achievement standard in math, this higher bar is necessary to get our students ready for Oregon’s graduation requirements and success after high school.

Many educators, parents, and community members have questions about these higher expectations and what they will mean for Oregon kids. In order to facilitate discussion, answer questions, and provide easy access to materials and recourse, ODE is developing a Math Achievement Standards 2010-11 webpage. This page will provide the current and previous achievement standards, links to professional development opportunities, and access to a range of resources including State Board dockets, an FAQ, information about the standard setting process, achievement level descriptors, communications tools, and more. The new webpage will be available soon at the following link: http://www.ode.state.or.us/search/page/?=3182.
