How will ODE’s Graduation guidance impact college admissions? A: The Oregon public universities are committed to ensuring that new students who intend to enroll at our institutions are considered fairly in light of the educational interruption they have endured. No student admitted to our institutions for fall 2020 will have their admission rescinded due to changes in grading policy or the inability to complete their coursework, so long as they still graduate. Students who apply to our institutions are still subject to a review process that focuses on one's ability to succeed in college, but now recognizes that some situations are beyond their control.

Grading during Distance Learning Recently, Oregon Department of Education (ODE) provided guidance around grading during the Distance Learning for All,(DL4A) for grades 9-11. Harrisburg School District made the decision to move to a Pass/No Pass/Incomplete system for grades 3-11. This holds students current GPA’s harmless during this closure. The teachers will determine grades of Pass/No pass/ Incomplete based on the staff interaction with students and work completed. Teachers are tracking their students who participate during the connection times and work completed.

April 2, 2020 Please review the following update regarding the expectations and details of distance learning for Harrisburg Jr/Sr High School students: Our staff has spent this week (March 30-April 2) working hard to adapt to the world of distant learning. They have been very involved with developing creative ways to educate our students remotely. All of this starts with making sure all of our families have the necessary equipment and materials to access education. Starting next week (April 6-9) you should be able to access material for your students to work on. During this week please make sure that contact is made with each of your student’s teachers. The expectation is that your student needs to make contact with each of their teachers at least once per week. This can occur in a variety of ways which includes email, Zoom, or by phone. Our goal for this week is that everyone (staff, students, and parents) becomes familiar with the process of distance learning. I am asking my teachers not to enter grades this week as we realize there will be some challenges that need to be overcome and I don’t want additional stress placed on students that are adjusting to this style of learning. On April 13th we will officially start providing Distance Learning where teachers will be establishing due dates, requiring assignments and assessments, providing feedback, and entering grades. The expectation is that students will spend approximately 30 minutes per day for each of their classes. Students will also need to continue to make weekly check-ins with their teachers. This will provide the opportunity for all students to earn their credits for the second semester. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work together to provide the best possible education for our students during these challenging circumstances.

The governor's executive order gave five stipulations for school districts to do in order to receive state school funding. One of those is to continue paying employees through the closure. We are looking into having staff perform painting and possibly other maintenance items around the district while following social distancing guidelines. We are planning to have classified staff work with teachers and be available for phone calls, paper packet copying and collating each week.
