Bethel Update: Student Success Act

By now, many of you have heard about additional funding coming to K-12 schools next year from Oregon’s Student Success Act (SSA.) This is exciting news! I want to share Bethel School District’s process for determining where those additional funds will be directed. Our process and plan is guided by requirements of the Act, these items in particular:

  • Equity*
  • Engagement
  • Accountability
    • Meet Students’ Mental or Behavioral Health Needs
    • Increase Achievement

*A strong focus in equity has been defined by the Oregon Department of Education (ODE) as:

  • “Education equity is the equitable implementation of policy, practices, procedures, and legislation that translates into resource allocation, education rigor, and opportunities for historically and currently marginalized youth, students, and families including civil rights protected classes.”

The ODE is directing districts to reexamine our systems and processes with a goal of closing the achievement gap among our students.

Where To Start

Our process begins with Bethel’s Continuous Improvement Plan (CIP). CIPs are required plans, updated annually, and submitted to the ODE. The CIP will establish the needs of different student groups in Bethel. The CIP is the foundation that will guide, and most importantly, inform our application for SSA funds. (Though Districts will be allocated funding based on student enrollment, we are required to formally apply for the SSA funds from the state.)

Engagement

The Act also requires engagement. Bethel has been/will be engaging in the following ways:

  • Our CIP’s needs-assessment is underway and includes a group of staff, students, and parents reviewing student data
  • Information from various student group meetings and student surveys from last spring
  • We will also meet with families of students with disabilities, students learning English, and students/families navigating homelessness
  • Provide two different opportunities for Community input—January 9th and January 14th
  • Staff input and discussions throughout January for each Bethel school

Finally, the District has to submit its CIP to the state, then once that’s approved the District will submit its application for SSA funds. It’s a long process, likely continuing into next May.

We will keep you updated along the way, and will be sure to invite you to the Community Input meetings in January. We’re excited to be going on this journey in order to create more supports for our students, particularly for those who need it the most.

 

Actualización: Ley de Éxito Estudiantil

Por ahora, muchos de ustedes han oído sobre los fondos adicionales que recibirán las escuelas desde K a 12vo  grado para el próximo año de parte de La Ley de Éxito Estudiantil de Oregon (SSA.) ¡Estas son excelentes noticias! Yo quiero compartirles el proceso deI Distrito Escolar de Bethel para determinar a dónde se dirigirán los fondos adicionales. Nuestro proceso y plan será guiado por los requerimientos de la Ley, estos artículos en particular:

  • Equidad*
  • Compromiso
  • Responsabilidad
    • Satisfacer las Necesidades de la Salud Mental o la Conducta de los Estudiantes
    • Aumentar el Logro

*Un fuerte enfoque en la equidad ha sido definido por el Departamento de Educación de Oregon (ODE) como:

  • “La equidad educativa es la implementación equitativa de la política, prácticas, procedimientos, y legislaciones que se traducen ha asignación de recursos, rigor educativo y oportunidades para jóvenes, estudiantes y familias históricamente y actualmente marginados incluyendo los derechos civiles de clases protegidas.”

El ODE está dirigiendo a los distritos a reexaminar nuestros sistemas y procesos con el objetivo de cerrar la brecha de rendimiento entre nuestros estudiantes.

Por Donde Empezar

Nuestro proceso comienza con el Plan de Mejora Continua de Bethel (CIP). El CIP son planes requeridos, actualizado atualmente, y presentada a el ODE. El CIP establecerá las necesidades de los grupos diferentes de estudiantes en Bethel. El CIP es la fundación que guiará, y más importante, informará nuestra aplicación para los fondos de SSA. (Aunque los distritos recibirán fondos en función de la inscripción de los estudiantes, estamos obligados a solicitar formalmente los fondos de la SSA del estado.)

Compromiso

La Ley también requiere compromiso. Bethel ha estado / estará participando de las siguientes maneras:

  • La evaluación de necesidades de nuestro CIP está en marcha e incluye un grupo de personal, estudiantes y padres que revisan los datos de los estudiantes.
  • Información de varias reuniones de grupos de estudiantes y encuestas de estudiantes de la primavera pasada
  • También nos reuniremos con familias de estudiantes con discapacidades, estudiantes que están aprendiendo Inglés y estudiantes/familias que navegan por la falta de vivienda.
  • Proporciona dos oportunidades diferentes que aporte a la comunidad—9 de Enero y 14 de Enero
  • Comentarios y discusiones del personal durante Enero para cada escuela de Bethel

Finalmente, el Distrito tiene que presentar su CIP al estado, luego, una vez aprobado, el Distrito presentará su solicitud de fondos de la SSA. Es un proceso largo, que probablemente continuará hasta el próximo mes de mayo.

Lo mantendremos informado a lo largo del camino y nos aseguraremos de invitarlo a las reuniones de Community Input en enero. Estamos entusiasmados de emprender este viaje para crear más apoyos para nuestros estudiantes, particularmente para aquellos que más lo necesitan.

Meadow View Happenings

Safety Week at Meadow View

This week is Safety Week! Meadow View staff and students will practice a lockdown drill, earthquake drill, directed evacuation and fire drill. These are rehearsals that we hope to never have to implement. However, we practice our drills to make sure everyone knows what to do in the event of an emergenSee the source imagecy.

Meadow View students and staff will practice a lockdown drill. Lockdown is the command used in the event of a threat-or perceived threat at or near our school. During our drill, an intercom announcement will inform staff and students that the drill will begin. Staff will then be asked to secure their classrooms. Teachers will lock classroom doors, close the blinds, move students away from the windows, turn out the lights, and ask students to remain quiet. The drill will last about five minutes, at which point another announcement will be made that the drill is over.

Teachers will talk to students to prepare them for the lockdown drill. They will let students know that during a lockdown it is very important to stay quiet and listen to adult directions in order to stay safe. Teachers will also share that in the event of imminent danger, they may ask students (depending on grade level) to help barricade the door to make sure no one can enter the room or ask students to quickly evacuate the building. Tools that teachers will be using during these conversations are scripts that were created by the District Safety Committee and videos that were created in partnership with Eugene Police Department.

You can find all of this information on the District’s School Safety page. It’s under the Parents tab on the Bethel home page: http://www.bethel.k12.or.us/district/school-safety/

We will also practice an earthquake drill and follow the Drop, Cover and Hold On protocol. Following our earthquake drill, we will conduct a directed evacuation. We intend to continue sharing our plans with you as we work together to ensure a safe school environment for all.

A New MV Playground is in the Works!

We are getting closer and closer to having a new playground! Last week, MV Principal, Erika Case, and Assistant Principal, Carmen Adler, met with Bethel District staff to review the bids and designs from three different companies. We have selected a local Oregon company, Wildwood Playgrounds NW, as our vendor. They have presented us with pictures and we can make a few tweaks. Today we had a meeting with the owners of Wildwood Playgrounds NW to make some adjustments and will see another proposal by the end of the week! We are so excited to have a new playground and we are hoping that it will be soon! There is a tight turnaround as we are up against the winter months that are headed our way. Stay tuned!

MV Updates!

MV’s K-5 Back to School Night and 6-8 Curriculum Night

Two of our favorite nights are coming up…K-5 Back to School Night and 6-8 Curriculum Night are right around the corner!

Our K-5 Back to School Night will take place on Tuesday, September 24th from 6:00-7:00pm and our 6-8 Curriculum Night is scheduled for Wednesday, September 25th from 6:00-7:00pm.
At K-5 Back to School Night, parents will have the opportunity to tour the classroom with their child, celebrate current learning and classroom community as well as gain an understanding of what their student will experience this school year. Grade level teams will share more information about the evening with parents soon.

At 6-8 Curriculum Night, parents will walk through a shortened, mock schedule of their child’s day, learn about the curriculum covered in each class, grading, expectations and future learning. This is a great sneak peek into your child’s daily routine as they navigate middle school and prepare for high school and beyond.

Our teachers are excited to share their expertise, plans for the school year and genuine love of teaching.

Lastly, if you haven’t already paid your student’s school supply fee, Back to School Night and Curriculum Night is a great time to do so! Our wonderful MV front office team will be there ready to help! See you soon!
