The Salem-Keizer Board of Directors voted 5-2 last night to approve the boundary adjustment proposal brought forward by the Boundary Review Task Force. Directors Blasi and Lippold opposed. The boundary adjustments will go into effect for the 2019-20 school year and only apply to incoming kindergarten through third-graders, sixth-graders and ninth-graders. Students entering grades four, five, seven, eight, 10, 11 and 12 will not be impacted by the boundary adjustments. Transportation will be provided both for students in the new boundaries and those who are not impacted by the boundary adjustments and will be continuing in their existing schools. Students enrolled in special programs will continue in those special programs.
Families impacted by the boundary adjustments will receive personalized letters in their preferred language in the coming days detailing the transition. Maps are available at schools to review the 36 areas of Salem and Keizer impacted by the adjustments.
The Boundary Review Task Force is a 45-member volunteer committee comprised of representatives from the special education community, PCUN, Mano a Mano, Salem/Keizer Coalition for Equality, Salem-Keizer NAACP and all geographic regions.
Thanks to the community’s passage of a bond in May, SKPS will invest $619.7 million in Salem and Keizer in the form of school expansions, renovations and improvements over the next five to six years. Boundary adjustments will shift students away from crowded conditions and into these new, improved learning environments.

Monday, February 11, 2019 found six McKay students at the Salem Chamber Luncheon Forum. The partnership with McKay and Maps Credit Union was on full display during the luncheon. Jacob Boring, one of the management team in the Advanced Banking Management class, took the stage to share his experience with the program at McKay and then introduced two of the distinguished guest panelists. The panelists spoke about the importance of Career and Technical Education and the guests included Christy Perry, our Superintendent. Several panelists commented on the skills demonstrated by Jacob as he stood in front of the large crowd of Salem business and community members. Jacob did an amazing job representing McKay High School and the partnership we have with Maps.
Another Regionals success! This group of first-time competitors battled sickness & nerves, pushed through, supported one another, and learned a ton! Special to the day: senior, LJ Allise, walked (sang?) away with the third highest score (of 130 singers) and qualified to rep McKay at STATE and NATIONALS!!! Go, Scots!
