posted Jan 29, 2018, 2:55 PM by Chapman Hill   [ updated Jan 29, 2018, 2:59 PM ]

Salem-Keizer Public Schools offers free full-day kindergarten.


Research has shown there are many benefits of full-day kindergarten, including:

·         Long-term educational gains for students

·         Social, emotional and intellectual growth

·         Students enter first grade better prepared


Research also shows five year old children are ready for a longer school day.


Students who turn five on or before September 10, 2018 are eligible to register.

Registration opens February 20, 2018. Parents are asked to register kindergarten students right away so the district can know how many new kindergarten classrooms will be needed in the fall.


Early registration also helps parents stay in the loop of upcoming school events like kindergarten orientation, which will take place in May.


To register, please visit your assigned school and pick up a registration packet. If you’re unsure what school is assigned to serve your residence address, please visit the district’s school finder page: http://busfinder.salkeiz.k12.or.us/elinkrp/Students/BasicTransBoundarySearch.aspx

1.       Proof of residence address. Examples of documents accepted include a copy of a utility bill, driver’s license with current address, copy of rental agreement, etc.

Bond Measure

posted Sep 21, 2017, 1:28 PM by Chapman Hill

Members of the Salem-Keizer School Board are planning a general obligation bond measure for the May 2018 ballot. The proposed bond would address critical facility needs in nearly all schools and support buildings in our district.


The proposed bond would:

Construct additional space to address capacity issues, relieve overcrowding and address future enrollment growth.

Make seismic upgrades at schools rated very high risk for collapse in the event of a large earthquake.

Make safety and security improvements district-wide such as upgrading electronic badge access systems and relocating front office spaces for better visibility and control over who enters and exits school buildings.

Construct new Career-Technical/vocational education classrooms at all high schools to expand programs such as engineering, science and technology.

Expand and construct additional space at all six of the district’s traditional high schools to increase capacity from around 1,600 students to up to 2,200 students.

Make improvements to existing school buildings such as painting the exterior, sealing masonry walls, replacing roofs, etc.

Address equity issues across the district, such as access to technology and science programs.


The list of needed improvements came from a two-year planning process to create a Long Range Facility Plan (LRFP). A group of community members from Salem and Keizer served on the Citizens Facilities Task Force and reviewed every page of the LRFP. The total amount of work needed is estimated at $620 million and far exceeds what the district can afford to pay from the general fund. The Task Force recommended that the School Board pursue a general obligation bond to fund the work.


The proposed bond package is not yet final. The Board will continue to discuss the bond over the next several weeks. Follow the development of the bond package on the district website: www.salemkeizer.org.
