Integrated Pest Management Plan. ref- ORS 634.740 - An OSU faculty member with expertise in pesticide toxicology has reviewed all of the pesticides that we use, and they meet the requirements of a "low-impact pesticide" as defined in ORS 634.705 (5). They NEVER have a label category that is higher than Caution, and contain no known carcinogens. You can find a copy of the approved list of pesticides at the following web page: http://www.ipmnet.org/tim/IPM_in_Schools/IPM%20Materials/8-5-13_Low-Impact_Pesticide_List.pdf . If you would like to see what we are doing and how we go about improving the condition of our schools to create a healthier environment for your children you may review the entire OSU School IPM program at http://www.ipmnet.org/tim/IPM_in_Schools/IPM_in_Schools-Main_Page.html. Our custodial, kitchen, maintenance/facilities staff have completed IPM safe school modules, and are eliminating pests through cleaning and organizing our environment. In addition, our teaching and support staff have also been educated on how they can help. We are sealing up our buildings, eliminating clutter, keeping food in plastic storage containers, eliminating leaks and drips in our plumbing, properly pruning our landscaping, and being more thorough in our cleaning efforts. Through these efforts we are eliminating the things that pests need to survive. We are also providing a healthier learning environment for your children, and saving the school district money by reducing costs, work load and less pesticide use. If you have questions or concerns about these products, we encourage you to contact our IPM Coordinator, Steve Marsh at 503-678-7107.

Title Funds and No Child Left Behind - North Marion School District has received Federal Title I funding to supplement the regular core curriculum, particularly in reading and math. North Marion Primary School and North Marion Intermediate School have been designated as School-Wide Title IA Projects enabling all students to benefit from the funding with the Success for All reading program, Bridges Math and Everyday Mathematics and additional teachers, instructional assistants and materials to support instruction. Other Title funds received from NCLB for current school year are targeted toward professional development programs for teachers and instructional assistants, for enhancing second language learner programs, training teachers in the use of technology, and supplementing the drug-free schools curriculum. The funds are targeted to help us meet our goals of increasing achievement for all students so that we leave no child behind. Funds from the Federal grants provide supplemental services to North Marion that the general fund budget dollars cannot support. The applications are written to align with the goals of the school district, as well as meet the requirements of the law. If you have any questions concerning the Title programs under NCLB, please call Boyd Keyser, Superintendent at 503-678-7101.

Migrant Program - North Marion School District participates in the Willamette Education Service District Region 16 Migrant Program. The program allows the District to serve families who are migratory. The Home School Consultant recruits families in their own native language making them aware of services available within the community and foremost, assisting the families with school registration and educational opportunities for their children. NMSD seeks to meet the needs of migrant students through the regular instructional programs with support.

Parent meetings are scheduled throughout the year to provide parents with information regarding migrant issues such as changes in the law, health concerns, and ways to help the student become more successful in school. Guest speakers, experts on migrant education and parenting, present content at the meetings.

Parents receive reminders of the meetings not only in English, but also in their native language. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact Maria Gaona (Spanish) at 503-678-7115.
