WIAA Athlete of the Week

Congratulations to Brooklyn Sandridge as she was honored as the WIAA Athlete of the Week for the 3rd week of the season for 2B soccer. Interestingly enough Brooklyn won the same award last year during the 3rd week.


Sandridge scored a school-record five goals in a win versus Ilwaco, and then scored one goal and assisted another in the win against Ocosta. She is the ultimate student-athlete as a 4.0 student, ASB President, and involved in multiple clubs and activities. Sandridge is an All-League player in soccer and basketball, and a four-year starter in both, while also running track at a high-level.

Gender Inclusive Schools

For full transparency with our parents, students, and community and in compliance with Federal Law, Washington State Law, and OSPI, the Onalaska School District (OSD) developed Gender-Inclusive Schools Policy 3211 and Procedure 3211P on September 23, 2019 that aligned with Washington State laws related to gender-inclusive schools and anti-discrimination. OSD will adhere to serving all students fairly and equally.


In accordance with Federal and Washington State laws and policy, students have the right to express their gender at school, without discrimination or harassment. Schools must allow students to use the restroom or locker room that corresponds to their consistent gender identity. ANY student who requests greater privacy for any reason has access to an alternative restroom or changing area. These locations are designated at the high school office and at the elementary/middle school office, each containing a single stall and gender neutral space. Additionally, schools must allow all students to participate in physical education and athletics that correspond to their gender identity per the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association. Every student has the right to an inclusive, supported learning environment and safe space.


Questions should be directed to: Kristin Soderback

Superintendent, Title IX Officer, Civil Rights Coordinator

FAQs

If I am approved for ACP and currently on an internet service plan with a provider, can I switch to a different internet service plan of that provider, including to that provider’s low-cost plan, and receive the ACP benefit? Yes. The ACP benefit can be applied to any internet service offering, and providers cannot restrict you from switching service offerings or subject you to mandatory waiting periods. Sometimes providers prohibit existing customers from switching to low-cost internet service plans; however, consumers receiving the ACP benefit are not subject to these “existing customer” restrictions.

What happens if my provider has eligibility requirements for an internet service plan that conflict with ACP rules? (e.g. My provider requires that I pay off my past debts before signing up for XYZ internet service plan) ACP rules override the rules of participating providers in the context of an ACP consumer. For instance, a provider may generally require that consumers pay off past or present debts before signing up for XYZ internet service plan. However, consumers who are approved to receive ACP benefits are not subject to that requirement (since the ACP rules prohibit providers from declining to enroll ACP consumers based on past or present debts).

Note: The ACP rules clearly allow ACP consumers to apply their benefit to any internet service offering that is generally available (i.e. not a grandfathered/legacy plan) and prohibit mandatory waiting periods (47 CFR 54.1808(e)(6)(iii)) and restrictions on switching plans (Para. 166 of the Report and Order).
