It’s time to complete online registration & enrollment verification

It’s time to complete the registration/enrollment verification process for the 2021-22 school year! Completing this process early ensures our district can best prepare for staffing, program offerings and more.

Steps to complete online registration & enrollment verification

(1.) Gather needed documents:

  1. Proof of age (new student)
  2. Proof of address (new students)
  3. Immunization records

*If you are unable to provide any of the following documentation, you can still complete online registration. Your school will work with you individually to meet the needs of your student for enrolling in school. We welcome all students and families regardless of nationality, place of birth or other circumstances.

(2.) Log-in to ParentVUE:

Online registration and enrollment verification is done through a program called “ParentVUE.” Families will have one ParentVUE account for all students in their family.

If you have never used ParentVUE before, follow these steps to complete the activation process.

(3.) Complete Registration

Families can complete registration completely online through a desktop or mobile device. If you need assistance, please contact your child’s school. If a paper form is needed to complete registration, your school can assist with this.

During the registration process, families will register for school as well as elect if they want their child to attend in-person learning through their resident school or access instruction through the EDGE online program.

Salem-Keizer Public Schools will continue offering the online-only Enhanced Digital Guided Education (EDGE) program for the 2021-22 school year. Students who are in EDGE will remain connected to their resident school while receiving online instruction by Salem-Keizer’s EDGE teachers.

Starting in the fall of 2021, EDGE students can choose between two learning pathways to best meet the needs of individual students and their families. One option is called EDGE Connected, which includes daily, teacher-led instruction. The other option is EDGE Independent, which is student-paced with teacher oversight and offers a more flexible schedule.

As an additional resource for families to learn more about the EDGE learning pathways for 2021-22, how to complete registration and ask questions, SKPS will be hosting family information nights on May 5 and 6 from 6-7 p.m.

Language interpretation will be provided during both events.

A partir del otoño de 2021, los estudiantes de EDGE pueden elegir entre dos modalidades de aprendizaje para satisfacer mejor las necesidades individuales de los estudiantes y sus familias. Una opción se llama EDGE Connected, que incluye instrucción diaria dirigida por el maestro. La otra opción es EDGE Independent, que se adapta al ritmo de los estudiantes con la supervisión del maestro y ofrece un horario más flexible.

-Todos los estudiantes de EDGE del kínder al grado 12 estarán en el mismo horario para períodos de calificaciones, conferencias, etc. independientemente del aprendizaje a través de EDGE connected o EDGE independent.

National School Public Relations Association and Salem-Keizer Public Schools kick-off districtwide communications audit

How best to communicate with all of Salem-Keizer Public Schools’ (SKPS) variety of audiences, is top of mind for Salem-Keizer, and district leaders want to hear from staff, families, students and our community partners about district communication.

With the help of the National School Public Relations Association (NSPRA), SKPS is conducting a districtwide communications audit. What that means is that all SKPS audiences have a chance to share how they feel about how the district communicates: Is it working for them or not working? What ideas do they have for improvement? Are the tools the district and schools use effective or not?

NSPRA will gather this information through surveys and focus groups.

But first, who is NSPRA and why are they qualified to do this study?

Since 1935, NSPRA has been providing school communication training and services to school leaders throughout the United States, Canada and the U.S. Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) schools worldwide. NSPRA’s mission is to advance education through responsible communication. They accomplish that mission by developing and providing a variety of diverse products, services and professional development activities to members as well as to other education leaders interested in improving their communication efforts.

What is in it for Salem-Keizer Public Schools?

SKPS cares about communication and engagement with its many audiences. How to best communicate with all audiences is complex and is certainly not a one-size-fits-all scenario. Although the district and our schools may not be able to implement every tool, SKPS wants to improve how the district engages the many audiences throughout our community, which is challenging.

This week the district will kick off its surveys – The week immediately following spring break will be another opportunity to hear from voices through focus groups.  A variety of invitations will follow this initial survey in the next couple of weeks. Meanwhile, district leaders are also asking staff to provide feedback through the following surveys.

Participation in these surveys should take less than 15 minutes and is completely anonymous.

Encuesta sobre la comunicación del distrito

Comunicarse de la mejor manera con toda la variedad de audiencias de las Escuelas Públicas de Salem-Keizer (SKPS, por sus siglas en inglés) es lo más importante para Salem-Keizer, y los líderes del distrito quieren escuchar las sugerencias del personal, las familias, los estudiantes y nuestros aliados comunitarios sobre la comunicación por parte del distrito.

Con la ayuda del Asociación Nacional de Relaciones Públicas Escolares (NSPRA, por sus siglas en inglés), SKPS está realizando una auditoría de comunicaciones en todo el distrito. Lo que eso significa es que todas las audiencias de SKPS tienen la oportunidad de compartir cómo se sienten acerca de cómo se comunica el distrito: ¿les está funcionando o no? ¿Qué ideas tienen para mejorar? ¿Son efectivas o no las herramientas que usan el distrito y las escuelas?

NSPRA recopilará esta información a través de encuestas y grupos focales.

Miembros de la comunidad, completen la encuesta de comunicaciones
Familias de SKPS, completen la encuesta de comunicaciones

School Day Schedule Adjustments for the Week of November 9

Reminder that there will be no school on Wednesday, November 11, 2020, in recognition of the Veterans Day holiday. This will change the school day schedule for the week starting November 9. Instead of Monday being a student support day, it will be a school day.

The goals of this decision were: students not losing a day of instruction and keeping the instructional hours consistent for both of our cohort groups at the secondary level. 

Elementary School Students

Elementary students will have school on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday of the week of November 9.

Middle and High School Students

Secondary students in the Tuesday/Thursday cohort will attend Monday and Thursday of that week and secondary students in the Wednesday/Friday cohort will attend Tuesday and Friday of that week.

EDGE Students

All EDGE students will have school on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday of that week.

Please review the 2020-21 Cohort Calendar for additional information about important dates.

As Chromebooks come online after the summer, updates may take time and Step 2 may need to be repeated multiple times. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but appreciate your patience and understanding during this important update process.

Please call your school for help with this issue.
