Changing To Distance Learning

Hi Kalapuya Families,

There is a very real potential that our students, like those in many other states, may not return to school this academic year. According to Colt Gill, Director of the Oregon Department of Education, we are in the midst of a “historic transformation of our education system.”

ODE is asking all districts to shift to Distance Learning, potentially through the rest of the school year, rather than providing weekly supplemental education for students.

This is a huge shift for most school districts, including Bethel. In the next two weeks, we will:

Connect with each family to determine their access to the internet, digital devices and the most practical way for families and students to receive learning materials

Assess our district’s technological capacity to provide Distance Learning online

– Develop lessons that can be shared online and on paper that meet the needs of all students at all levels

– Accelerate the training for our teachers to provide students lessons in different formats

– Communicate regularly with parents/guardians, who will play an important role in the effectiveness of Distance Learning

Student Enrichment Resources

There is some good news to share, while there are still questions to be answered.

We at Kalapuya hope you are still healthy and we look forward to the day we are able to open KHS again.

This week was scheduled to be Spring Break before we had this interruption to the school calendar. We want you to know we are still attempting to get a clearer picture of what to expect for the next several months.

The Oregon Department of Education is currently working on a plan to address the unique needs of high school students during this closure. We know that high school students and their families are concerned about credits, as well as various tests such as SAT, IB and AP. We will communicate details once guidance from ODE is provided, and we expect that will be soon. Thanks for your continued patience.

Our Bethel staff have been working to plan materials and activities for students in all grade levels. We intend to offer continued supplemental enrichment for your child while schools are closed.

Supplemental Materials: Materials will be available to you on April 6th in two formats: online and hard-copy paper packets. These will be made available each week throughout the closure. We are working hard to ensure that all supplemental materials are accessible to all of our students. 

Enrichment: In the meantime, we have vetted and collected resources to support the enrichment of your student. Click here to access these enrichment resources.

Check-In: Your child’s teachers will be contacting you after Spring Break to share more information about the supplemental materials, and simply because they miss their students! 

These are unprecedented times which result in many questions. We will share more information with you as soon as we get it. In the meantime, take good care of yourself and those around you.

 

Esperamos que este mensaje le encuentre bien. Extrañamos la presencia de sus hijos en la escuela y esperamos con ansias cuando volveremos a estar juntos.

Esta semana estaba programada para las vacaciones de primavera, cuando teníamos un calendario escolar oficial. Todavía estamos intentando tener una idea más clara de qué esperar para los próximos meses.

All School employees will continue to receive their regular pay. They may be required to assist with the provision of supplemental services and emergency management activities.
