As we head into summer break, we want to say “Thank you” to our community for approving the 2018 bond! Because of our community’s support, Salem-Keizer Public Schools will be able to make improvements, expansions and/or renovations all across the district. Improvements planned include additional space to serve our community’s growing enrollment as well as expanded career-technical (vocational) spaces, more space for science education, safety and security improvements and seismic safety upgrades.

Five schools are scheduled to begin construction in 2019 – Gubser Elementary School, Judson Middle School, Waldo Middle School, McNary High School and North Salem High School. All work approved under the bond is planned to be finished in about five years. For more information about projects funded by the 2018 bond, please visit https://bondinfo.salkeiz.k12.or.us/bonddocuments/.

At many schools, construction is likely to take place during the school year. Schools, architects and the district’s bond program management team will work together to minimize disruption of the educational environment caused by construction. However, it’s important for parents, students and staff to be aware that school operations will be different during construction. Our commitment to student safety and success will be unchanged during construction.

We would once again like to extend our appreciation to the Salem-Keizer community for supporting students and schools by approving the 2018 bond!

Salem-Keizer Public Schools Joins SafeOregon Confidential Tip Line

posted Mar 13, 2018, 10:47 AM by Salem Keizer


Salem-Keizer Public Schools (SKPS) has officially joined SafeOregon, a confidential tip line that gives our kids, parents, schools and communities a confidential way to report safety threats or potential acts of violence.

Salem-Keizer Public Schools has a sophisticated and proactive intervention system in place for timely interventions. These include the SKPS Office of Behavioral Learning, the Office of Safety and Risk Management, and our Threat Response System that offers step-by-step protocols on preventing and controlling potentially dangerous situations.

The SafeOregon tip line adds an additional resource to ensure students and staff have a confidential avenue for reporting and bolsters SKPS’ relationship with law enforcement. This program is run and managed by the Oregon State Police and has proven to prevent acts of violence.

“Since the SafeOregon began its statewide program, we’ve seen it grow as a resource for the communities we serve,” said John Van Dreal, SKPS Director of Safety and Risk Management Services. “We know that what keeps our children safe is an open line of communication, and SafeOregon provides that communication in a confidential way.”

All tips reported by members of the Salem-Keizer community– including parents, students and employees – in regard to school and student safety will be closely investigated by the Oregon State Police and SKPS. The safety of our students, staff and volunteers is without question, our highest priority.

We encourage all parents to download the SafeOregon App on their phones, and their child’s phone as well. Individuals may also report a tip by calling or sending a text to 844-472-3367 anytime. Tips also can be emailed to tip@safeoregon.com. For more information, go to www.safeoregon.com.
