Salem-Keizer Board of Directors Votes to Approve Boundary Adjustments

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.

McKay Banking Program Student Shines at Salem Chamber Luncheon

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.

Acerca del sarampión:

  • El sarampión es una enfermedad viral contagiosa que puede propagarse por el aire cuando una persona enferma con sarampión tose o estornuda. También puede propagarse por contacto directo con la secreción nasal y saliva de alguien enfermo con sarampión.
  • Los síntomas del sarampión comienzan con fiebre, tos, secreción nasal y ojos rojos, seguidos de una erupción roja que generalmente comienza en la cabeza o la cara y se extiende al resto del cuerpo.
  • Las personas son contagiosas con el sarampión durante cuatro días antes de que aparezca la erupción y hasta cuatro días después de que aparezca la erupción.

  • Las complicaciones del sarampión incluyen infección del oído, infección pulmonar y, en casos raros, inflamación del cerebro.
  • Aproximadamente 1 de cada 1000 niños mueren de sarampión.
  • Cualquier persona que no sea inmune al sarampión y crea que tiene síntomas de sarampión debe comunicarse con su proveedor de atención médico o atención de urgencia por teléfono para hacer arreglos para evitar exponer a otros al virus.
