If you are not directly involved with education on a daily basis, you will, as in any occupation, hear a host of acronyms substituting for lengthy explanations. CCSS, ODE, OEIB, HB220, are just a few of the coded acronyms on topics we use every day and most often fail to realize that someone else does not understand what is being said. If you would like to see a list of acronyms, click on the business office webpage on the district website, then go to the 2016-2017 Budget Document and go to page 27. There you will find a list of the most common abbreviations utilized in the world of education.
Parent Volunteer Opportunities
There are many opportunities for parents/grandparents/community patrons to volunteer in the Fern Ridge schools. They include but are not limited to: Site Council, Field Trips, PTA, Fundraising Events, Booster Club, and Classroom Support. If you would like to volunteer, you will need to fill out the Criminal History Verification of Applicants/Volunteers Form. The form needs to be submitted to the school where you would like to volunteer (only one form needs to be filled out if you have students in multiple schools.) Upon approval, your name will be added to the Approved Volunteer Listing. Volunteer approval is good through the current school year. A new Criminal History Verification of Applicants/Volunteers form needs to be completed at the beginning of each new school year.

Open Enrollment 2017-2018
The Legislature has approved the continuation of the Open Enrollment option for the 2017-2018 school year. Open enrollment provides an additional method of school choice for Oregon students, which allows them to apply for a permanent admission to a school district. Non-resident students may apply to transfer from their resident district to attend Fern Ridge School District through the open enrollment process. Interested non-resident students must submit a completed Fern Ridge School District Open Enrollment form to the Fern Ridge School District Office beginning March 1, 2017 and closing on April 1, 2017 at 4:00 p.m. Accepted applicants will be notified around May 1, 2017.
Parent/Guardian E-Mail Notification
Beginning December 2013, the Fern Ridge School District will utilize parent/guardian emails as another way of communicating with parents/guardians. If you currently have an email addressed listed in our student information system, you will receive emails. If you do not have an email listed and wish to receive future emails, call your child’s school and ask that your email address be added.
Our district is proactive in providing parents with information that benefits the health and safety of students and demonstrates our commitment to the wellbeing of all faculty, staff, students and visitors.
