January 17, 2024: Cassia County School District values the safety of our students and staff, and attempts to consider all factors prior to making any decisions regarding school delays or closures. When making a decision, the school district first works closely with the highway departments in each of our four communities: Burley, Declo, Malta, and Oakley. This is because they are the experts in road conditions, and the district values their input. They drive the roads very early and try to determine safety for buses. Once the highway departments have assessed road conditions, they communicate with the school district transportation department, who then communicates with the school district superintendent. In addition, the school district also monitors the weather conditions through their partnerships with local weather sources, as well as considers a number of other important factors, such as child care for parents who must go to work, food insecure children, and children who might be left unsupervised at home if they are not in school. Once all this information is gathered, the superintendent then confers with the school board chairman, and a decision is made based on the information available. Because Cassia County School District is so geographically diverse, the same decision may not be made district-wide. Also, weather conditions change rapidly in Cassia County, which may at times cause the school district to re-evaluate and dismiss students earlier than normal. Whenever possible, the school district does attempt to make the call by 6:00am when weather is questionable. January 17, 2024: El Distrito Escolar del Condado de Cassia valora la seguridad de nuestros estudiantes y personal e intenta considerar todos los factores antes de tomar cualquier decisión con respecto a retrasos o cierres escolares. Al tomar una decisión, el distrito escolar primero trabaja estrechamente con los departamentos de carreteras de cada una de nuestras cuatro comunidades: Burley, Declo, Malta y Oakley. Esto se debe a que son los expertos en las condiciones de las carreteras y el distrito valora sus aportaciones. Conducen por las carreteras muy temprano y tratan de determinar la seguridad de los autobuses. Una vez que los departamentos de carreteras han evaluado las condiciones de las carreteras, se comunican con el departamento de transporte del distrito escolar, quien luego se comunica con el superintendente del distrito escolar. Además, el distrito escolar también monitorea las condiciones climáticas a través de sus asociaciones con fuentes climáticas locales, así como también considera una serie de otros factores importantes, como el cuidado infantil para los padres que deben ir a trabajar, niños con inseguridad alimentaria y niños que podrían ser dejados sin supervisión en casa si no están en la escuela. Una vez que se recopila toda esta información, el superintendente consulta con el presidente de la junta escolar y se toma una decisión basada en la información disponible. Debido a que el Distrito Escolar del Condado de Cassia es tan diverso geográficamente, es posible que no se tome la misma decisión en todo el distrito. Además, las condiciones climáticas cambian rápidamente en el condado de Cassia, lo que en ocasiones puede causar que el distrito escolar reevalúe y despida a los estudiantes antes de lo normal. Siempre que sea posible, el distrito escolar intenta hacer la llamada antes de las 6:00 am cuando el clima es cuestionable.

PARENT ENGAGEMENT SURVEY Below is a link to our annual Parent Engagement Survey that we are asking all parents of students within Cassia County School District to fill out online. This survey is sent out and required by the Idaho State Department of Education each year to all districts in the state of Idaho. Survey results are intended to help us gain feedback and insights about each of our schools. When filling out the survey, please select the school that your child attends from the drop-down menu instead of selecting Cassia County School District itself. If you have students in multiple schools, we ask that you please complete the survey once for each of the schools your children attend. Completing the survey should only take about 10 minutes or less. We appreciate your willingness to participate!
