We are off to a wonderful start to the new year. The students and teachers are eager to be here and that special feeling to the start of a new year is in the air! We hope that you like the new look to our website. Our goal was to streamline the information and make it more user friendly. Look for more updates as the year goes on. I will be posting to the site about every month. If you or your organization would like me to include something, let me know and I will be happy to share.
In the next few months the State of Oregon will be posting our school report card. You will see some numbers listed there that are not very favorable, especially when it comes to our graduation rate and some test scores. This data is not what we would like it to be, partly because of some data from the Alternative Education program that we had been running. As of this year we have terminated our Alternative Education offerings. This should lead to more favorable data going forward. While we firmly believe that Alternative Education is important for many students, we also know that the data that is generated skewed the success that we are having locally.
Again, Welcome Back to School! We are off and rolling and look forward to an exciting and productive year. If you have questions for me, please feel free to call, email, or stop by!
