New Parents’ Guide to Graduation

posted Oct 10, 2014, 12:03 PM by Salem Keizer   [ updated Oct 13, 2014, 9:44 AM ]


Salem-Keizer Public Schools has created a new publication to help answer parents’ most commonly asked questions about achievement and instruction as students work to earn a standard four-year diploma.

The Parents’ Guide to Graduation will be mailed home in mid-October.

One Guide has been created specific to each grade, kindergarten through grade 8, and one for all high school grades combined. Each Guide contains a snapshot of learning standards for the grade level, information about grading practices and state tests, and tips for helping students at home. Materials are available in both English and Spanish.

There are also Parents’ Guide websites with additional resources: http://www.skgradguide.com and http://espanol.skgradguide.com. Both websites were designed to be mobile-friendly to serve parents who want to access information from a smartphone or other mobile device.

Parents may find the Guide most useful when reviewing report cards or at parent-teacher conferences. Conferences are coming up in late November.

The handout is named “Parents’ Guide to Graduation” because each grade is a step along the way to the ultimate goal of achieving a high school diploma. Knowing what it takes to stay on track at each grade level will help students reach that goal.

Salem-Keizer is grateful to the sponsors of this project, Maps Credit Union and ServiceMaster of Salem for supporting the printing of the Parents’ Guide!


 

Nueva Guía a la Graduación para los Padres de Familia  


El Distrito Escolar de Salem-Keizer ha creado una nueva publicación para ayudar a contestar las preguntas frecuentes de los padres de familia sobre el rendimiento académico e instrucción mientras se esfuerzan los estudiantes a obtener un diploma estándar de cuatro años.

La Guía a la Graduación para los Padres de Familia será enviada a los hogares por correo a mediados de octubre.

Se ha creado una guía específica a cada grado, de kindergarten hasta 8º grado, y una sola guía combinada para los grados 9 al 12 de la escuela preparatoria. Cada guía contiene un resumen de los estándares de aprendizaje para ese nivel de grado, información sobre las normas de calificaciones y exámenes del estado, y sugerencias sobre cómo ayudar a los estudiantes en casa. Estos materiales están disponibles en inglés y español.

También existen dos sitios Web de la Guía para los Padres con recursos adicionales: http://www.skgradguide.com y http://espanol.skgradguide.com. Ambos sitios Web fueron diseñados para acomodar a los padres que desean acceder la información por medio de un “smartphone” u otro aparato móvil.

Los padres podrán encontrar que la Guía es más útil para revisar boletas de calificaciones o en las conferencias de padres y maestros, las cuales se realizarán a fines de noviembre.

La guía impresa se llama Guía a la Graduación para los Padres de Familia (Parents’ Guide to Graduation) porque cada grado es un paso en el camino hacia la meta de lograr un diploma de escuela preparatoria. Conocer lo necesario para mantenerse centrado en el camino en cada nivel de grado ayudará a cada estudiante a alcanzar esa meta.

El Distrito Escolar de Salem-Keizer agradece a los patrocinadores de este proyecto, “Maps Credit Union” y “ServiceMaster of Salem” por su apoyo para imprimir la Guía de los Padres.
