Annual test results for all District 6 schools indicate lead levels below EPA standards

Tuesday, February 27th, 2018

Annual test results of our most recent round of drinking water samples from each school are listed below. These tests, along with future tests, are part of the District’s protocol to locate any sources of lead in drinking water which exceed EPA limits. Remedies to correct lead levels which exceed EPA limits may include replacement of fixtures, the addition of filters, and/or other plumbing projects.  Alternative sources of water may be supplied if plumbing work cannot be completed in time for school.  This process represents our commitment to provide our students and staff with water which meet standards set by the EPA.

All District 6 Schools closed Thursday, February 22

Thursday, February 22nd, 2018

Hazardous road conditions, including snow and ice, have resulted in all District 6 schools closed today, Thursday, February 22.   We recognize that a “snow day” is both awesome for kids and sometimes a hardship for parents who must make last minute childcare arrangements, and we make the delay or closure decision carefully.

After School Ski/Snowboard Program UPDATE 2/5/2018

Wednesday, January 31st, 2018

Dear Families:

With regret, we have decided to cancel our participation in the after school ski/snowboard program this year at Mt. Ashland.  We realize this a great disappointment, but the lack of snow, safety and the forecast make this necessary.

We want to make sure families are able to receive a refund, which may allow you to take your student(s) to another mountain for skiing/snowboarding.  Refund checks will be mailed to parents as soon as possible.  Please contact us if you do not receive your refund by Friday, March 2nd.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Central Point School District 6 Compliance with Division 22 Standards

MLK Event Statement

Friday, January 12th, 2018

January 12, 2018

District 6 Community:

The Central Point Community MLK celebration last evening included student-­produced material that many members of the audience – especially younger students – found upsetting or offensive. I sincerely regret aspects of the program that could be perceived as inappropriately political, disturbing, or unsuitable for younger students.

District 6 encourages and supports student voice — especially the voices of those who have been marginalized, discriminated against or abused. We also recognize that students may need guidance about where and how that message is communicated to be most effective, and last evening was a missed opportunity to do so. An event that was billed as a “community celebration of MLK” was not the place for explicit and disturbing material. Further, I’m concerned that the tone and some of the material could be construed as more divisive than uniting — the opposite of Dr. King’s message.

In the future, every effort will be made to assure that material presented at community or school events be reviewed by an administrator prior to public performance.  Further, school staff will provide specific information about content in performances that may be unsuitable for younger students and communicate that information to parents and audience members prior to the performance.  Finally, our concerns about the event and meeting these expectations have been communicated with staff involved.

I very much appreciate the feedback we received from parents and community about this event. District 6 remains committed to providing an educational experience that is safe, thoughtful and supportive of ALL students.

Sincerely,

Samantha Steele

Superintendent

2016-2017 Report Cards

Oregon School and District Report Cards

Annually, the state of Oregon assesses school and district performance based upon metrics including student attendance, graduation, and standardized test performance. While standardized testing is not our purpose in District 6, we do pay attention to that data as one indicator of our performance. Other data such as graduation rates and attendance rates are reviewed at the school and district level to identify areas of success and areas of challenge. This year, our district out-performed the state in some key areas – drop-out rates are significantly lower than state and region averages; graduation rates are higher than state and region averages, and our High School English Language Arts, Middle School Math, and both High School and Middle School Science exceeded the state averages. Please see links to the report cards here:

October 20, 2017

Results of our follow up tests for faucets which exceeded EPA limits during our previous rounds of testing in December and April are listed below. These tests, along with future tests, are part of the District’s protocol to locate the sources of lead. Remedies to correct lead levels which exceed EPA limits may include replacement of fixtures, the addition of filters, and/or other plumbing projects.  Alternative sources of water may be supplied if plumbing work cannot be completed in time for school.  This process represents our commitment to provide our students and staff with water which meet standards set by the EPA.
