Pilot project launched to stabilize families in Gladstone, Jennings Lodge and Candy Lane areas
Northwest Family Services is collaborating with the Clackamas County Division for Children, Youth, and Families; the Clackamas County Department of Human Services, and the Gladstone Center for Children and Families to launch a pilot project which will connect families in Gladstone, Jennings Lodge and the Candy Lane area with the resources needed to stabilize their current situations.
Darin Sanchez, Family Support Navigator, will provide assistance to families who have a child (ages 0-18) with an open child welfare case with DHS and will help families navigate the social service system, provide facilitation, ongoing support, resources, and follow-up.
Ellyn Jeck, the Family Resource Coordinator, will provide support and assistance to help families with children (ages 0-8) and will focus on early childhood success, including pre-kindergarten readiness and reading by 3rd grade. Any family in the Gladstone School District with a child in these age ranges can receive services. Services that meet the needs of the referred family will be identified and supports will be matched to meet those needs. For further information, please contact Darin Sanchez, email@example.com 503-974-5079, fax 503-479-6075; or Ellyn Jeck, 503-496-3945 firstname.lastname@example.org fax 503-655-8145.

State Rule Change Regarding OAKS Retesting
Gladstone schools are in the process of administering the annual Oregon Statewide Assessments. All students enrolled in grades 3 – 8 and in high school must take the required state OAKS assessments offered at their enrolled grade, including students re-enrolled in the same grade as in the prior year, unless the student receives a parent-requested exemption. Districts may not retest students in grades 3 – 8 who have already met or exceeded the achievement standard unless the district first receives explicit consent from the student’s parent or guardian for the current school year. Request to retest forms were sent home in the registration packets in August; if you wish to have your child retested after posting a passing score but did not fill out the form, please contact your child’s school or the District Test Coordinator – Susan Olds (email@example.com / 503-650-2591).
