Asbestos Notice-All Facilities in the North Marion School District in accordance with the Federal Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act have been inspected for the presence of friable asbestos. In this inspection careful attention was given to the accessibility and condition of any asbestos found in our buildings. The results of this inspection was then put into a management plan to detail how we will manage and maintain it to provide a continuously safe and healthy environment for everyone that enters our facilities. This management plan can be found in the District Office, each school office and the District’s Maintenance Office for you to examine. Cleaning, preventative measures, training and periodic surveillance is being performed on an ongoing basis. Our required three-year re-inspection was completed in 2006.

Integrated Pest Management Plan. ref- ORS 634.740 - In 2017, the Oregon State Legislature passed SB 1062, which requires that, every school district, education service district, and public charter school develop a Healthy and Safe Schools Plan (HASS Plan). Each organization’s HASS Plan has specific requirements that must be included for the HASS Plan to comply with state law. North Marion School District’s Healthy & Safe Schools Plan is in compliance and meets the requirements of OAR 581-022-2223. 
If you would like to see what we meeting the SB 1062 requirements and how 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 HERE 

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, David Shultz at 503-678-7110.

Title Funds and ESSA - 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 for the 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 school's curriculum. The funds are targeted to help us meet our goals of increasing achievement for all students so that ALL Students Succeed.
