BOARD NEWS  March 13.2023 At its March 13 regular meeting, the Ashland School Board took several actions. It formally approved Superintendent Bogdanove’s recommendation to adopt the enrollment zone boundaries for Walker, Helman, and Bellview elementary schools put forward by the Enrollment Re-Balancing Committee. This is the product of several months work by staff and volunteers. The new boundaries and related information can be found HERE: https://www.ashland.k12.or.us/page/enrollment-balancing-review The Board unanimously approved a draft Integrated Application to the Oregon Department of Education’s Aligning for Student Success initiative. (https://www.ashland.k12.or.us/page/aligning-for-student-success) This combines the budget and priorities for several funding programs including the Student Investment Account, High School Success (Measure 98), Career and Technical Education, and the Early Indicator and Intervention data system.  These funded programs support the goals of the school district’s Pathways to Excellence strategic plan (https://www.ashland.k12.or.us/page/aligned-goals) The Integrated Application (https://www.ashland.k12.or.us/page/aligning-for-student-success) will be submitted to ODE for final review by March 31. The Board also heard a presentation from elementary, middle school and high school teachers about the work they have done reviewing and selecting recommended curricula on mathematics for each level. The two highest ranked programs were presented as the recommendations. These materials will be available for public review and input for the next several weeks before a final recommendation is made for approval by the Board at its May 8 meeting. Once adopted, the curriculum will be introduced in the 2023-2024 school year.

ASHLAND SCHOOL BOARD ATTENDS OSBA CONFERENCE IN PORTLAND For the first time in several years, the annual conference of the Oregon School Board Association was held in person in Portland the weekend of November 11-13. All members of the Ashland board attended along with Superintendent Bogdanove. At least two members were seeing the conference live for the first time. This gathering offers many speakers and workshops focused on issues that school boards manage, including: • the importance of student voice in school operations, • increasing support for teachers, • staffing shortages, • legislative changes on the horizon, • funding needs. All Board Members reported finding the experience informative, energizing and inspiring. Board Members are community volunteers and give hours of their time to make positive changes for Ashland students. Our thanks go to our Ashland School Board superheroes.
