    • Free breakfast clarification

      • Free breakfast does not cost the district anything

      • Districts in the state are required to contribute to food programs

        • Our district pays about $23,000 per year currently, and this is not tied to the number of meals we do or do not serve

      • The district gets reimbursed for all meals served

        • We get a bigger reimbursement for students who qualify for free and reduced meals than for meals served to students who pay

      • By offering free breakfast, we increase the number of students being served a meal= we get more reimbursement which covers the costs of the program

        • Before free breakfast for everyone, 30% of FRL kids ate breakfast

        • Currently, 80% of FRL kids are taking a breakfast

        • That is more money to pay for the program and more kids eating breakfast

REA Minutes


Present:  Jennifer Thompson (RHS & President), Tracy Grauer (Fremont & Secondary VP), Sherryl Bailey (Fir Grove & Treasurer), Cindy Towers (JoLane and Secretary), Camron Pope (Eastwood), Lisa Pardon and Sherri Good (Fir Grove), Yvonne O’Neil (Fullerton), Karla Addington and Scott Kelso (Green), Donna Cooper, Corina VanBurger, and Emily Veale (Hucrest), Colleen Fitzgerald and Matt Hall (JoLane), Janet Parrott (Melrose), Lisa Long (Sunnyslope), Linda McGraw (Winchester).



  • Call to order by President, Jennifer Thompson at 4:16.

  • Approval/additions to agenda: Motion made by Emily Veale/Seconded by Matt Hall. Motion passed.

  • Approval of the minutes: Motion made by Camron Pope/Seconded by Emily Veale.  Motion passed.

  • President’s report

    • Concerns from last meeting addressed with Robert Freeman.

      • Extreme behaviors

        • Room clears:  All teachers should have a plan for rooms clears, practice those plans in advance before actually needing to use the plan.  The plan really shouldn’t be to send a class to the playground.  There should be a room clear buddy where students go to another classroom and an instructional activity is planned, again in advance, for when a room clear happens.  Room clear is a matter of “when” not “if”.  Just as in any other emergency situation, planning and preparation are keys to not losing instructional time!

        • Comments:  There is not enough room to combine classes and have a lesson .  It is not realistic.  When a student causes multiple “Room Clears” they need a behavior plan and consequences.  The behaviors are a growing problem.  What is our system to deal with these specific student issues?  

        • Not enough training and support:  Yup.  Cabinet agrees and are continuing to work on systems to ensure teachers and IA’s are prepared BEFORE student arrive on our campus.

        • Not enough room in special programs:  Yup – Cabinet recognizes this and are in discussions on how to support this concern.

        • Referral process to Sped takes too long:  We need to have further discussion regarding this.   My personal feeling is in most cases it should take too long!  We need to make sure we have exhausted all our tools and looked into every support or intervention a team feels appropriate before we label a student with a disability.  Now having said that, I [Robert] have witnessed a too lengthy process for students.  Some students were at the II level for over two years!  That is too long and really was a systems issue that was fixed.

        • Comments: Evaluation planning meeting should be scheduled for the beginning of the next year after the interventions. Attendance is an issue for kids who need to be referred.  

      • Water issues--district using the EPA recs for children

        • EPA sets the guidelines for schools and homes.  These guidelines are set for us.  Roseburg did not set their own guidelines.  Tolerances for schools are higher than homes due to the fact they say kids aren’t at school as long as they are at home so the likelihood of them drinking more at school is less.  However, the studies show that younger kids are more prone to lead related illnesses.  Therefore the lowest EPA tolerance was used in determining our acceptable level.   Currently all the elementarys have been fixed and we are waiting for test results to confirm.  Should get results for the elementarys by next Wednesday (as of 12-8-16).  Unfortunately the middle schools have shown a high number of positive results.  Change outs are in process but are taking time.  Our maintenance staff is working to resolve all our lead issues and are trying to do that ASAP.   We are sorry it is causing an inconvenience in some buildings but this is an area the District needs to make sure the lead levels are meeting the guidelines.  Student and staff health is paramount.

      • CDS should have prep time and elementary principals were reminded.

      • 6th and 9th grade teachers having to start teaching earlier than all others--reported to HR in Labor Management.  This is on their radar and will be included in future discussion.

      • Need more information regarding Wednesday PD travel.

        • Is the travel primarily Math, ELA, SpEd?

        • Is it the ELA training that was asked for by teachers?

        • District tried very hard to stop pulling teachers out of class for training and significantly decreased that this year--just as a side note.

          • 80 fewer teachers removed from classrooms in same date window as last year.

          • Out-of-classroom time reduced to half days in more than 50 instances.

      • A committee to educate and re-energize our local union. Volunteers to begin the group:  David Morocco and Matt Hall.

      • Update: Meeting with Bob Sconce to set up a plan of action scheduled for mid-January.  There are training and conferences that the team can go to.

    • Board meeting dates

      • 1-11, 1-25 (Hucrest), 2-8, 2-22 (Fir Grove), 3-15, 4-12, 4-26 (Green), 5-10, 5-24 (Fremont), 6-14.  Please plan on attending at least one meeting.

  • Secondary VP report - Fremont Principal settling in.  No other report.

  • Elementary VP report-No report.

  • Consultant report--will not be present

  • Treasurer report - DCEC dues paid.  1099s will be ready at the end of January.

  • Comments and questions from the floor

    • Teachers want information about other districts near us.  Sutherlin has the highest satisfaction rating from teacher surveys.  They have excellent working conditions and are considered the “Cream of the Crop” in our area.

    • Some Sped caseloads are 3 times higher than other schools.  We need more Sped teachers.  The paperwork days are not protected by the contract.  Can there be caseload caps for Sped?

    • Travel - all elementary teachers meet at a specific location on Wednesdays.  Could we tele-conference?  Let’s use our technology. Or...could they meet 1 half day each month instead?

  • Meeting adjourned: 5:07

REA Rep Meeting

December 1, 2016


Present:  Jennifer Thompson (RHS & President), Tracy Grauer (Fremont & Secondary VP), Cindy Towers (JoLane and Secretary), Sherryl Bailey (Fir Grove & Treasurer), Camron Pope and Cindy Long (Eastwood), Lisa Pardon and Sherri Good (Fir Grove), Karla Addington and Scott Kelso (Green), Donna Cooper, Corina VanBurger, and Emily Veale (Hucrest), Amy Grabinsky (Fremont), David Morocco, Matt Hall, and Colleen Fitzgerald (JoLane), Janet Parrott (Melrose), Linda McGraw (Winchester).



  • Call to order by President, Jennifer Thompson, at 4:20

  • Motion to approve agenda made by David Morocco.  Seconded by Camron Pope.  Motion passed.

  • Approval of the minutes.  Motion made by Emily Veale.  Seconded by David Morocco.  Motion passed.

  • President’s report:

  1. Discussion regarding Elementary prep time - 225 minutes per 5 day week.  Each prep is required to be 40 minutes long.  Prep is not protected in the Elementary because it is before and after school.  *See contract.

  2. Board meeting dates:  

1-11, 1-25 (Hucrest), 2-8, 2-22 (Fir Grove), 3-15, 4-12, 4-26 (Green), 5-10, 5-24 (Fremont)

  1. Jeffrey Lee is the new Web page manager.  Here is the link to the REA Web page: www.REAteacher.com. We will also ask to have it placed on the District HR page.  

  • Secondary/Elementary VP report:  

                 Professional Development is often running to 4 PM at the Elementary level.  

*They hold Staff meetings from 3:30-4:00, or travel days eat it up.  No  

collaboration time left after the PD Time to implement what has been

learned. You can use exchange time if a meeting is held during your prep.    

Records should be kept by the Office Manager.

       * Travel for LA, Science, Writing, and Math should be paid.  Fill out

              and submit for payment.  

*Teaching and Learning came up with the schedules with the

             coaches, not the principals.

  • Treasurer Report:  Stipends paid for Board.

  • Questions/Comments from the floor:

  1. We need a system to protect teachers and the regular education students because 90% of our energy is spent on 5% of the class.  When we have “Room Clears” 40 minutes of class time is lost when students go to the playground to wait.  Teachers are learning strategies such as Calming Corners and other new skills, but the district is not working toward solutions to major mental health issues of students.

  2. Water issues continue.  There is still no water.  Only 1 fountain per 300 students in the Middle Schools.  We consider this as poor working conditions and safety issues for both students and teachers.  Is there truth that our water is already meeting EPA requirements and that the district is going above and beyond because of the Portland SD issues.

  3. At Hucrest, the Special Ed teacher is not getting information that is sent to all Title Schools Sped Teachers because Hucrest is not a Title School and doesn’t have learning specialists.  There is no teacher to get info regarding Dibels, MTI, etc.

  4. Be careful about how you’re using your cell phone - making comments about another teacher could be considered “a hostile work environment.”

  5. Teachers are requesting that a discussion be held at Labor Management about the 6th and 9th grade teachers having to start teaching earlier that all others.  Either those students are released in June on the same date as the Elementary students, teachers should be compensated, or the practice should be discontinued.

  6. Discussion about the current union direction - how do we make people aware of the inequities compared to  other local districts.  As a group we need to educate members about the ratification process and how important it is for them to attend bargaining sessions.  A committee will be organized to  educate and re-energize our local union.  Volunteers to begin the group:  David Morocco and Matt Hall.


  • Meeting adjourned:  5:20

Meeting Minutes

November 3, 2016


Present:  Jennifer Thompson (RHS & President), Tracy Grauer (Fremont & Secondary VP), Pat Pecorilla (Fullerton & Elementary VP), Sherryl Bailey (Fir Grove & Treasurer), Cindy Towers (JoLane and Secretary), Camron Pope and Cindy Long (Eastwood), Sherri Good (Fir Grove), Yvonne O’Neil and Nick Van Blume (Fullerton), Karla Addington (Green), Donna Cooper, Corina VanBurger, and Emily Veale (Hucrest), Matt Hall, Colleen Fitzgerald and David Morocco (JoLane), Eric Fullerton (Melrose), Lisa Long (Sunnyslope), Linda McGraw (Winchester).


  • President, Jennifer Thompson called the meeting to order at 4:40.

  • No additions to the agenda.  Motion to approve made by David Morocco/seconded by Donna Cooper.  Motion carried.

  • Motion to Approve the minutes made by Camron Pope/seconded by Davied Morocco.  Motion carried.

  • President’s report

    • Veteran’s Day Parade

      • 10:00 meet on Fowler St behind the library

      • Little Red Schoolhouse float

      • Parade starts at 11:00 and ends at 12:30(ish)

      • There will be a drawing for a gift card for the participants.

    • Teacher’s getting hit by students update

      • Robert Freeman, Rick Burton, Pat, and Jennifer had meeting

      • Robert Freeman addressed principals with following guidelines:

        1. Review flow chart for staff to follow when students present behaviors.

        2. How/when does a student’s behavior trigger consequence protocols?  Everyone in the building should be on the same page.

        3. Be up to date and knowledgeable about students in your building who have a behavior plan, FBA, or safety plan.  Make sure those plans are being followed and revised as needed.

        4. Communicate your expectations of what should take place before teachers look for help.  But then, if a teacher does ask for help, trust those expectations have been adhered to and go help!  If possible, Principal covers the class while teacher deals with student.

        5. A reminder that placement is NOT a permanent decision.  If a student is presenting with behaviors, placement (reduced day) could be looked at as an option to support the student and staff.

        6. ALL programs, including DLC, TAP Success, etc.., are part of your building.  They are your kids which in turn offers them the same access to FAPE as regular ed kids and should be made part of the school culture.  E.g.: Included in the regular ed class as much as possible, tested on the same schedule, participate in all building activities.

        7. If a teacher is not feeling heard, they need to first extend communication to the building Principal.  If they still feel not heard, communicate with the building union representative.  Last resort would be to contact Student Services.

        8. A worthwhile activity is to brain-storm different behaviors during a staff meeting.  Then ask teacher to share how they would handle that behavior.  A group of teachers provide an enormous resource for each other.  They could fill their tool box with ideas from peers.  Stress the importance of practicing extreme behavior situations in your classroom.  Practice room clears, have a buddy classroom to use as a time out spot, etc…

        9. Think about proven building systems that support positive behavior.  It really doesn’t matter which system you use but the majority of the building need to be using the same system for continuity.  As a leader of your building, it is your job to collaborate with staff to identify the support systems your building will be using and support the development of that system.

      • I responded with the following two concerns:

        1. I assume that the confusion around who is writing behavior plans in each building was probably covered in your discussion of #1 or 2?

        2. The tone of contacting Student Services as a last resort

      • Final thoughts

        1. Behavior plans and/or other interventions should be in the clear planning stages after the second (and for sure no later than the 3rd) time a teacher is hit.

        2. Contact union reps ASAP if movement is not seen so that we can help nudge that along

        3. This is a main concern for K-3.  Older student issues are assault and there is already a plan in place.

  • Due to trains interrupting meeting times, a vote was taken to move the meeting start time to 4:15.  Motion carried.

    • Board meeting dates

      • 11-16, 12-14, 1-11, 1-25 (Hucrest), 2-8, 2-22 (Fir Grove), 3-15, 4-12, 4-26 (Green), 5-10, 5-24 (Fremont), 6-14.  Please plan on attending at least one meeting.

  • Secondary VP report - things seem to be calming down throughout the district.

  • Elementary VP report - discussion revolved around serving breakfast at the elementary schools.  In some schools breakfast is served at 8:40.  When teachers are monitoring this, they lose 25 minutes of instruction time per week.  If not at breakfast, some schools send kids to the classroom, while others have students sit in the gym and wait.  Some schools stagger the breakfast times, while others do not.  Camron Pope reported that spikes in behavior issues have decreased because all kids are eating breakfast.

  • Consultant report

    • A change in working conditions, due to the breakfast issue should be notified to the Union.  Bob will attend the next labor management meeting to discuss the teachers’ roles in supervising breakfast.

    • You must drop off your ballot at this time, too late to mail in.

    • No volunteers for canvassing in Roseburg.

  • Treasurer report - Be sure to turn in your Teacher Appreciation forms.  Regarding mileage, some buildings are holding onto it until there is $10 or more to reimburse.  It costs money to do a Purchase Order on this.  The office managers have to do the paperwork.


  • No comments and questions from the floor

  • Meeting adjourned at 5:18

      • The district is concerned any time a teacher is hit by a student. This is not ok.

      • Upon the first incident of a child hitting, an administrator will become involved and determine if the incident seemed like a one-time, bad day sort of incident or if it seems like this is a recurring problem for the student that needs to be addressed.

      • If it seems like a one-time incident, the administrator and teacher will determine appropriate consequences and supports.

      • If it seems like it may be a recurring problem, a Functional Behavior Assessment will be completed by the School Psychologist  to determine what the child’s triggers are. Then a Behavior Intervention Plan or Safety Plan will be developed, which will part of IEP. Questions were raised about who is responsible for the Behavior Plan.  CDS does this at Eastwood, Fullerton and Fir Grove.  In some schools it is the Principal or the Skills Trainer.  

      • Each time the behavior happens again…

        • The behavior needs to be documented and assessed to see if triggers were present or new triggers can be identified.

        • The FBA/BIP/Safety Plan needs to be reviewed to be sure it is still accurate and does not need updating.

        • Teacher should fill out SAIF paperwork right away.  If something develops later you won’t be covered..

        • Admin should follow up within a couple of days to be sure no medical attention is necessary for teacher.

        • The consequences for each child with an FBA/BIP/Safety Plan/IEP hitting a teacher may be different according to their individual plan, but there must be a plan in place that is being followed for children that continue to hit teachers, and the development of the plan should be put in motion after the first or second incident of hitting.

        • If the teacher feels unsafe with the student while protocols are being followed to develop the FBA/BIP/Safety Plan/IEP, administrators will work with the teacher to determine what can be done to ensure a safe working environment.

    • Admin at IEP meetings

      • I communicated with Rick Burton who was very quick to get back to me.

      • This was discussed at Cabinet a few weeks ago. Then Rick contacted other districts to see what they are doing. It was then brought up at administrative session a couple of weeks ago where it was agreed that...

      • Admin absences will only be in the event of the following:

        • IEP is non-contentious

        • IEP will not require confirmation or consent of district resources (usually this is in the form of a body or bussing)

        • IEP is not an initial eligibility or re-evaluation

        • Note from Rick Burton:

        • ...building level leadership are not abandoning their roles and duties in lieu of non-attendance at standard IEP’s. Often they are double booked and the duties of attending are not needed, thus burning hours out their week they could use in other areas backing up or in a crisis.  It is about efficacy and supporting the teachers as well in their role so they are not always hostage to the administrators schedule.  The principals still are responsible to assess the support if it is asked for and to address the larger discussion as noted.

      • High school admin is still going to all IEP meetings.

    • Funds for Teachers subsidized by the Ford Family Foundation

      • Grant Application due January 31, 2017

      • Fellowships take place over summer following award

      • All kinds of projects are funded: Oregon Trail experience, 3 day Eric Jensen conference, etc.

      • $5000 individual limit, $10,000 team limit

      • Excellent chance to earn grant locally because of Ford Family backing

      • Check out website: http://www.fundforteachers.org/

    • There was discussion at the last board meeting regarding school safety training

      • ALICE (Alert, Lock Down, Inform, Counter, Evacuate) training was discussed--it was offered by the Roseburg PD, and some admin will be trained, but it will not be a program that is used to train students at this time. Winchester did the training last week.

      • A book was mentioned, and you know how I am about books :)

        • I’m Not Scared, I’m Prepared by Julia Cook

          • The school board did not endorse this book or urge its use. I just thought it sounded cool.

    • PERS

      • According to Cheryl Northam, there is good news: projected $1.5 million cost to district--actual bill $1.2 million for district this time

      • Bad news: if no changes made to PERS, could cost 30% of payroll in 3 years

      • Next charge is projected to be similar to this cycle

    • Robert Emerson showed the board a database tool called Schoolzilla which could make running reports out of Synergy and other record databases much more seamless--no commitment to its use at this time but seemed promising.

  • Secondary VP Report - There are lots of new positions in the district.

  • Elementary VP Report-none

  • Treasurer’s Report-the Teacher Appreciation Fund request forms can be picked up after the meeting, or found on the REA website.

  • Consultant’s Report
