Leadership Changes Announced for 2016-17 School Year
Published on Wednesday, June 15, 2016

Superintendent Erin Prince announced that Darren Bland, the current assistant principal at Linus Pauling Middle School has been named as the new principal at Cheldelin Middle School. Mr. Bland will fill the vacancy left by Jeff Brew who has accepted a position with the Greater Albany Public School District starting next fall.

This is a return to Cheldelin for Mr. Bland where he has strong working relationships with staff, students, and families. He served as the assistant principal at Cheldelin in the 2014-15 school year and has more than a decade of teaching experience at the middle and high school levels.

Another change in Cheldelin leadership is that assistant principal Nikki McFarland will join the Crescent Valley community where she will serve as assistant principal. Ms. McFarland began work in the Corvallis School District last fall after a distinguished career in Bellingham, Washington where she worked as dean of students for one year and taught AP environmental science for eleven years.

The assistant principal vacancy created at Linus Pauling Middle School will be filled with the return of current Crescent Valley assistant principal Aaron McKee. Mr. McKee has taught for 27 years at the elementary, middle and high school levels. Since May of 2014, he has served as the assistant principal at Crescent Valley. Mr. McKee has well-established relationships at Linus Pauling and is a highly respected leader in the district’s secondary schools.

These leaders will carry forward the principles of educational excellence embodied by outgoing principals Cherie Stroud and Jeff Brew. A full search for the Cheldelin Middle School assistant principal will be conducted this summer. “Darren, Nikki, and Aaron are active participants in advancing our vision of helping all students reach their full potential,” shared Superintendent Prince. “We are pleased to have such depth to draw from in this internal staffing process and we look forward to an exciting and successful 2016-17 school year.”

Drinking Water Safety in Our Schools
Published on Tuesday, June 07, 2016

Water safety is in the news and some schools have received inquiries about the safety of drinking water in Corvallis schools. We conducted lead and copper testing on all fixtures throughout the district in 2002. At that time, we took actions to reduce lead levels at locations that exceeded EPA action level guidelines. Actions included replacement of fixtures or plumbing and re-testing.

The Corvallis water system consistently provides a reliable supply of quality tap water that surpasses all state and federal drinking water quality requirements. All but three of our buildings use City of Corvallis water. We test the well water at Mountain View and Dixie School annually in compliance with state drinking water program guidelines. Muddy Creek Charter School maintains and monitors the water system at Inavale School.

We are actively reviewing our water management plan with staff. This summer we will work with an independent third-party consultant to review our water management plan and make recommendations for representative water sampling throughout the district.

If any elevated lead levels are found, the district will take steps to address the cause and provide a safe environment for students and staff. The district will immediately:

· Stop the water from being consumed and provide safe drinking water.

· Identify and eliminate the source of lead.

· Re-test water to make sure it is safe for students and staff.

  • · Notify parents, students, and staff of the results and action taken.

Questions about water quality in our schools should be directed to the district’s Facilities Department at 541-757-5877.


 

Whooping cough cases confirmed in Corvallis schools
Published on Wednesday, May 25, 2016

Espanol

Within the last week, the Benton County Health Department has notified us of 3 confirmed cases and 1 unconfirmed case of pertussis (whooping cough) within Corvallis schools.  The students with confirmed cases attend Lincoln Elementary, Linus Pauling MS, College Hill HS, and Crescent Valley HS; while the student with the unconfirmed case attends Corvallis HS.

The best way to prevent pertussis is by vaccination.  Adolescents usually get a Tdap vaccine at 11 or 12 years old. In addition, pregnant women are given the vaccine during pregnancy or soon after.  This vaccine can help prevent or lessen the symptoms of pertussis. Check with your child’s health care provider for the last time your child had a pertussis vaccine. If your child is not up to date with this vaccine, get the child vaccinated.

Pertussis is a bacterial infection, spread by airborne droplets from coughing, and by contact with saliva or nasal secretions. The incubation period is from 7-21 days. Symptoms of pertussis include fits of coughing, severe cough, or a mild cough that may last for weeks. Young children may often vomit or gasp for breath after coughing. While older children and young adults may not appear to be particularly ill, they can spread the infection to others. Especially infants may become very sick when infected with pertussis. For that reason, pregnant women in the last trimester must also be protected from pertussis. If your child is coughing, it is important to keep him/her away from these high-risk groups.

Anyone with coughing fits, severe cough, or any cough that is not improving after 10 days should be seen and cleared in writing by a health care provider, before attending school or other group activities.  Contact your health care provider with any concerns and inform them of this case within the school.  If you have questions, please contact the Benton County Health Services at 541-766-6654 or 541-766-6255 or a school district nurse at 541-757-4527. For more information you may go to this website: http://www.cdc.gov/Features/Pertussis/    

 

Crescent Valley Interim Principal Announced
Published on Monday, May 23, 2016

We are pleased to announce that Steve Kunke has agreed to serve as the interim principal at Crescent Valley High School to fill the vacancy created by the departure of CVHS principal Cherie Stroud. With more than 35 years of experience, Steve returns to our district as a seasoned and well-respected educational leader.

Mr. Kunke’s experience includes working as a social studies teacher, assistant principal, high school principal and assistant superintendent. He served for 22 years in the Corvallis School District, with the final 12 years as the principal at Corvallis High School. He then moved to the Greater Albany School District and worked as the assistant superintendent for 11 years. 

Although retired for nearly 4 years, Steve has remained active with special projects, including an interim post as Assistant Principal at CHS a year ago. “I have always valued education and appreciate the opportunity to stay involved, even in retirement. Cheri and her team have a good system in place and my goal is simply to support teachers and staff in the work they do to give all kids the best education possible. I am looking forward to making connections with students and excited to be a part of the Crescent Valley community.”

A formal search for the new principal for Crescent Valley High School will begin in January, 2017.

Budget Committee Approves 2016-17 Budget
Published on Tuesday, May 17, 2016

 

The Corvallis School District Budget Committee has completed their review of the proposed budget for the 2016-17 school year and has approved a final version to be presented for a vote by the school board at their June 20 meeting. The approved budget includes General Fund current requirements totaling $65.3 million, an increase of $3.9 million or 6.3 percent from 2015-16.

The approved budget represents a balanced budget that is slightly greater than the current year. It maintains current programs and supports the equity priorities of the district. With student enrollment projected to increase slightly and school district policies for contingency funds fulfilled, this year's budget committee discussion centered primarily on addressing additional contingency needs of anticipated increased costs of PERS, the Public Employee Retirement System.

Director of Finance and Operations Olivia Meyers Buch noted, "This represents the final meeting of the 2016-17 Budget Committee. We appreciate the investment of time and expertise of our citizen members and school board members. While there are uncertainties about future PERS obligations, our district is positioned well to serve the needs of our current and future students."

Details about the budget and budget process are available here.

School Calendar update: Last day of school schedule change
Published on Wednesday, April 13, 2016

 

June 16 is the last day of the 2015/16 school year and was originally communicated as a full school day on the calendar. This is typically a day for teachers and students to celebrate and say their goodbyes for the summer. After further review of instructional hours and the 2015-16 calendar, we have determined that the last day of school will follow a two hour early release schedule. 

Un aviso del Calendario escolar: Un cambio del horario para el último día de la escuela

El 16 de junio es el último día de la escuela y originalmente fue comunicado a Uds. Que sería un día entero/completo en el calendario. Típicamente, es un día para los maestros y los estudiantes para celebrar y decir adiós a sus compañeros para el verano. Después de revisar aún más las horas de instrucción y el calendario de 2015-16, los líderes del distrito decidieron que el ultimo día de la escuela no será un día entero/completo sino un día donde los estudiantes salen dos horas temprano. 


 

Superintendent Accepts Position with Chalkboard Project
Published on Tuesday, April 12, 2016

Superintendent Erin Prince has accepted a position as Vice President of Education Policy for the Chalkboard Project of Foundations for a Better Oregon, a non-profit whose mission is to create systemic reform in Oregon’s K-12 public schools. She will remain as superintendent until August 15 when she begins her new role. Superintendent Prince has served Corvallis public schools since 2011 and the most notable accomplishment in the district during her tenure has been a transformational improvement in graduation rates and the implementation of the fifth year program, Running Start. When she joined the district, four year graduation rates were 67.5% and have steadily climbed to a new high of 86% last year. The fifth year completion rate grew from 83% in 2011 to 93% last year.   

Other key areas of focus under her leadership have included a more inclusive instructional approach for students in special education programs, an emphasis on targeted interventions for students not meeting grade level benchmarks and the adoption of AVID, a program whose mission is to close the achievement gap by preparing students for college readiness and success in a global society.

“I am continually inspired by the commitment that I see in the staff at all of our schools. I’m proud that our graduation rates have jumped and more importantly, that every group of historically under served students (students of color, English language learners, students with disability, and economically disadvantaged students) increased by double-digit percentage points for on-time graduation,” Superintendent Prince shared with her staff on Tuesday. “We are shifting how we approach the delivery of education in our special education and English language learner programs by removing the silos and supporting co-teaching models, building capacity for instructional leadership, and expanding professional development supports for our teachers, assistants, and specialists. Together we have found strength in collaboration and while we still have much to do, our students are showing growth and feeling the care and dedication to their success.”

The school board will schedule a public meeting later this month to decide a process for hiring a new superintendent. The school district’s leadership team will carry forward with the school district’s focus to close the opportunity gap, ensure that every student shows growth and that every student is a graduate.
