Boundary Review Telephone Survey - Your Input is Important

Phone surveys to school district parents and guardians about school boundaries will take place in September. There will be 385 surveys completed with an emphasis on elementary school families. The information gathered will be used to develop core values and guiding principles for the process. The district is contracting with Critical Data to complete the telephone survey and parents/guardians are encouraged to participate if you are called.

The district’s Boundary Review Task Force (BRTF) will be convened later this fall. An application to serve on the task force will be available on October 1.

There will be opportunities for the general public to provide input mid-way through the boundary review.

Federal Public Charge Rule Facts

The Corvallis School District works to provide a safe and inclusive learning environment for all students and we believe that students are better prepared for learning the skills needed to be successful for their future when we remove barriers.

This message is to notify all families of a new federal rule that changes how people are found to be a “Public Charge”. It allows the federal immigration agency to look at a longer list of public benefits, and more factors such as family income, when deciding whether a person is likely to become a Public Charge in the future. This new rule will go into effect on October 15, 2019. Benefits that many of our families utilize and WILL NOT be counted in a public charge test include the following:

  • School meals
  • Special Education
  • School-based Health Services
  • Food from the Food Bank
  • WIC (nutrition assistance for women, infants, and children to age 5)
  • Oregon’s Cover All Kids Program

Please contact the school Principal, Family Liaison, Health Navigator if you have questions.
