Resources for parents of elementary students
One of the first Web sites you will want to become familiar with is that of
your child's school. Most schools in Oregon have Web sites. If you don't
know where to find this Web site, you can look up your school district on the
Oregon School Board Association's site. From your school district's
homepage you will be able to look up your child's school.
