We would like to thank our DARE officer, Officer Seibel, for bringing in school & office supplies that Walmart on Turner Rd. donated to the DARE program! There were notebooks, paper, scissors, and other school supplies. Items will be used in classrooms, for PBIS prizes, and shared by students. Thank you, Officer Seibel, for sharing with us!!

Thanksgiving Day Baskets

posted Nov 2, 2017, 10:59 AM by Chapman Hill

Soon your child will bring home a slip of paper with a food item on it to bring to school.  That item will join others in their class to help create a basket of food items that can help a neighborhood family with their Thanksgiving meal.  There will also be a few food items to round out the week that kids are home when we conference and have the Thanksgiving holiday!  We do this project in partnership with Salem Electric, Roth's and others in our neighborhood (they provide the perishable items).  So when you are on the next shopping trip, if you could add that item to the list, it would help the classroom put together their basket. Please only send that item as we are trying to make all the baskets the same.  If you would like to do more to help the 16 families, please contact me, or the school office, and we can accept cash or other ideas to help with filling out the baskets.  Your help is greatly appreciated.

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.
