Under the Student Assessment Bill of Rights, the Oregon Department of Education (ODE) and
Oregon’s school districts must provide families with a “Notice of Statewide Tests and Opt-out
Form” 30 days before the start of statewide testing.
This year, school has been significantly disrupted by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and other
factors. In response, ODE asked the United States Department of Education for a temporary
pause (also known as a “waiver”) in English Language Arts (ELA) and Math testing. A pause is
also being requested for science testing, but science testing is not subject to this opt-out rule.
• If this waiver request is approved, then statewide ELA and Math testing will not happen
this year, and there will be no need for parents to submit opt-out forms to their child’s
• If the waiver request is not approved, test windows will open on April 13, 2021.
ODE will update your district regularly with news about the waiver.
Según la Declaración de Derechos de Evaluación de Estudiantes, el Departamento de Educación
de Oregón (ODE, por sus siglas en inglés) y los distritos escolares de Oregón deben proporcionar
a las familias con un “Aviso de Exámenes Estatales y el Formulario de Exclusión” 30 días antes
del inicio de los exámenes estatales.
Este año, la escuela se ha visto significativamente afectada por la pandemia de COVID-19 actual
y otros factores. En respuesta, ODE planea solicitar al Departamento de Educación de los
Estados Unidos una pausa temporal (también conocida como “exención”) en los exámenes de
Artes de Lenguaje en Inglés (ELA, por sus siglas en inglés) y Matemáticas. También se está
solicitando una pausa para los exámenes de ciencias, pero los exámenes de ciencias no están
sujetos a esta regla de exclusión.
• Si se aprueba la solicitud de la exención, entonces los exámenes estatales de ELA y
Matemáticas no se realizarán este año, y no será necesario que los padres presenten el
formulario de exclusión a la escuela de su hijo/a.
• Si no se aprueba la solicitud de la exención, el período de exámenes se abrirá de 13 de
abril de 2021.
ODE actualizará a su distrito de forma regular con las noticias sobre la exención.
The proposed bond measure is estimated not to increase the current tax rate. Redmond School District will upgrade and update all of our schools to provide healthy, safe, and secure campuses that are modern and efficient. The district will expand the student capacity and prepare for future growth by building 6 additional classrooms at both Vern Patrick Elementary School and Tom McCall Elementary School.
Home of the Mustangs
Drew Frank has been the principal at Tom McCall Since September 2011. Prior to coming to McCall, Mr. Frank worked as the Students Services Director at Buckingham Elementary. This position is a kin to an assistant principal. Before beginning his administrative career, Mr. Frank was a classroom teacher for 10 years in Bend.
Mr. Frank earned his bachelor’s degree in psychology from Pitzer College, in Southern California. It was there that he played basketball for the college as well as solidified his desire to be part of the educational system of our country. Having grown up as the son of two educators, you could say, “teaching is in his blood.” If you ask Mr. Frank if he is a Duck or a Beaver; he’ll proudly say the Beavs!
Mr. Frank has an incredible wife who is a nurse in the Bend School District and two kids, one in college and one in high school. He loves to spend time with his family in the great outdoors. They love to camp, swim, play tennis and be active together. Mr. Frank is proud to be the principal of our school and he loves working with the staff, students, and families to make McCall the best it can be.
