Smarter Balanced Assessment Information

Dear Kalapuya Parents/Guardians,

Here is some important information about this school year’s state tests.

Each spring, Oregon students in grades 3-8 and 11 participate in state assessments in English Language Arts and Math. Rather than multiple-choice questions, today’s tests ask students to explain their reasoning and, often, write out their answers. The new assessments measure more complex skills such as critical-thinking, writing, and problem solving so that schools and parents can assess whether children are on-track to graduate high school ready for college or a career.

Students will take the state tests again this coming spring. While the tests in English Language Arts and Math cannot tell us everything about your child’s academic progress, the results do act as a snapshot of your child’s strengths and areas for improvement in those subject areas. The tests help Bethel School District get a more complete and accurate picture of how all Bethel students are performing, as we assess curriculum, review instructional strategies, distribute resources, and continue to improve our educational system.

Here is a fact sheet if you have general questions or want more information about the Oregon State Assessments.

All general education high school students must demonstrate proficiency in math, reading, and writing to earn a regular high school diploma. While there are multiple assessments to demonstrate proficiency, passing these parts of the state test meet this graduation requirement.

However, parents in Oregon have the option to opt their children out of the state assessments. Here is the form and further information that explains how you can opt your child(ren) out of state assessments this spring. Should you wish to opt your child out, please read the information carefully then print, complete, and return the form to our school’s main office by February 1st, 2016.

If you have any questions feel free to contact me at any time.

Estimados padres, madres y tutores de Kalapuya High School,

Aquí se presenta información importante sobre las pruebas escolares estatales de este año.

Cada primavera, los estudiantes de Oregón en los grados 3 a 8 y 11 participan en evaluaciones estatales en Artes de la lengua inglesa y Matemática. En lugar de preguntas de opción múltiple, la prueba de hoy les pide a los estudiantes que expliquen su razonamiento y, a menudo, que escriban sus respuestas. Las nuevas evaluaciones miden habilidades más complejas como el pensamiento crítico, la escritura y la resolución de problemas, de manera que las escuelas y los padres puedan evaluar si sus niños están en buen camino para graduarse de la secundaria, están listos para la universidad o una carrera profesional.

Los estudiantes tomarán las pruebas estatales nuevamente la próxima primavera. A pesar de que las pruebas de Artes de la lengua inglesa y Matemáticas no nos dicen todo sobre el progreso académico de su hijo, los resultados funcionan como una instantánea de las fortalezas y áreas de mejora de su hijo en esas materias. Las pruebas ayudan al Distrito Escolar de Bethel a tener una imagen más completa y precisa de cuán bien se desempeñan los estudiantes de Bethel, ya que evaluamos el plan de estudios, revisamos las estrategias institucionales, distribuimos recursos y seguimos mejorando nuestro sistema educativo.

Aquí hay una hoja de datos si tiene preguntas generales o si desea obtener más información sobre las Evaluaciones del Estado de Oregón.

Todos educación general los estudiantes de secundaria deben demostrar sus habilidades en matemáticas, lectura y escritura para ganar un diploma regular de la escuela. Si bien hay múltiples evaluaciones para demostrar su destreza, pasando estas partes del examen estatal cumplir con este requisito de graduación. Sin embargo, los padres en Oregón tiene la opción de elegir que sus hijos no participen en las evaluaciones del estado. Aquí hay un formulario y más información que le explica cómo puede elegir que su(s) hijo(s) no tome las evaluaciones estatales esta primavera. Si desea elegir que su hijo no participe, lea cuidadosamente la información y luego imprima, complete y envíe el formulario a la oficina principal de nuestra escuela antes del 1.º de febrero de 2016.

Si tiene preguntas, no dude en comunicarse conmigo.

Kalapuya Closed Monday

Due to continued icy conditions, classes have been cancelled at Kalapuya High School today, Monday, January 4th.

Students in Bethel’s elementary, Middle and K-8 schools already had a no-school day due to a staff inservice. That staff inservice has also been cancelled.

Roads and sidewalks are very icy and the weather forecast indicates that freezing temperatures will continue throughout the morning, when buses would be on the road.

We anticipate that improving weather conditions will result in a normal day of school Tuesday.

and members of the human resources team to receive one-to-one mentoring during and after mock interviews.  The experience provided an invaluable look into what the hiring process is really like.  Students were offered advice on how to better prepare for an interview, as well as tips to making a great first impression by appearing relaxed and professional.  Kalapuya seniors walked away from this experience feeling more confident to utilize their skills and abilities for future career opportunities.  This investment in our school helps students gain real-world employment skills while letting them know a caring community of adults is supporting their individual career paths.  Thank you EWEB!

 

Kalapuya Honey Harvest – The Sweet Rewards:

The Honey Bee hives at Kalapuya High School paid off with more than a learning opportunity. Students were able to jar 50 pounds of honey.  The bee hive frames were removed from the hives in August and frozen. This fall students thawed the honey, checked its moisture content, scraped it into a centrifuge, and bottled up the honey.The leftover bee’s wax has also been saved for future school projects.

The pint jars of honey sold out within hours of being posted on the district web page – with the revenue going back into supporting the Kalapuya beekeeping program.

Kalapuya Farm Progress:  Students have completed an immense amount of work this fall on the Kalapuya Farm project.   Students have:

  • Completed soil horizon studies on site (using heavy machinery to dig multiple holes, some up to five feet deep) to compare soil composition layers, test for pH, soil structure – and sent soil lab samples in to determine what organic amendments will be needed to bring the site up to outstanding agriculture standards.
  • Made multiple site visits to different local farms and worked with Ted Purdy (who directs the Springfield Youth Farm), Lorri Nelson, a local landscape architect, and David Schmitz, a local building architect to develop design parameters for our farm.
  • Students completed an application for water rights.  The local ‘Water Master’ visited with the class to help complete the application, which should be submitted by the end of the week.
  • Students worked with Lorri Nelson to create a master plan for the garden, which they presented to the class.  These designs were used to create a draft farm site plan.  CLICK THE FOLLOWING LINK to see the most recent version of the plan.  2015-12-13_Kalapuya Farm site draft 12.14.15

Hanna Rodriguez being sworn in by Superintendent Colt Gill

Bethel School Board Representative:  From a long list of qualified candidates, Kalapuya is proud to announce that Hanna Rodriquez will be the Bethel School Board representative from KHS.  Hanna was sworn in on Monday by Bethel Superintendent Colt Gill and then gave a detailed report to the school board about the start of the year at Kalapuya.  Hanna is able to represent KHS well, as she has taken part in nearly every curricular and extra-curricular activity we have offered.  She completed a sweltering summer working on the Kalapuya Conservation Corps environmental restoration crew that conducted work for the Bureau of Land Management, the Army Corps of Engineers, and Lane County, she has participated in multiple rock climbing trips with the rock climbing club at Kalapuya, and has gone on nearly every field study possible, including the California redwoods and Deschutes whitewater rafting trips.  She is set to graduate this spring, and we could not be more proud.

Kalapuya Garage Sale:  Come Saturday, 8 am to 5 pm, to either donate things you want out of the house or garage – or come to get great deals (and fill up your house or garage)!  The maintenance department has been dropping off equipment all week, and we are ready to move it out.  From fuel pumps and air compressors to desks and chairs, we’ll be ready to move surplus items out.  All proceeds will directly benefit Kalapuya student field studies and class trips.
