AGENDA: Salem-Keizer School Board to be briefed on school reopening, academic progress

Salem-Keizer school board members will get an update Tuesday evening about the district’s plans to resume in-person classes and how students have fared academically after nearly a year of school online.


Kindergarten and first grade students are scheduled to begin regular in-person classes Tuesday, March 2, two days per week.

District administrators will report on students’ academic performance to date this year, including progress on reading for elementary school students, absenteeism and the share of high school students on track to graduate.

The board will read and discuss, but not yet vote on, a charter contract renewal for Valley Inquiry Charter School.

To participate: The meeting starts at 6 p.m. Tuesday and is streamed live on YouTube in English and Spanish. It will also be broadcast on Capitol Community Media, channel 21. Because the meeting is a work session and no decisions will be made, the board is not taking public comment at this meeting.
