The Oregon Department of Education (ODE) released its school report cards for the 2014-15 school year.
These report cards are intended to help local schools and districts tell their story by providing information on:
- Student demographics
- Performance on state assessments in English, math & science
- Student outcomes
- Educational programs
- Comparison data with other schools in the state
Schools and districts did not receive an overall rating on the report card in 2014-15 due to the transition to new state assessments in English/Language Arts and Mathematics.
What does this information mean?
The overall performance of Oregon City School District students was better than the state average in ELA, math and science.
- The first year of results from a new assessment is a baseline from which future scores will be measured.
- The sum of report card information is used at a system level to ask questions about how to best support improved outcomes for all of our students.
Background on State Report Card Design:
The state report cards underwent an extensive redesign in 2013 after a year of review and public feedback. The goals of the redesign were to:
- More accurately reflect student learning and growth
- Incorporate key measures of college and career readiness
- Align the report card with district’s achievement compacts
- Make the Report Cards more user-friendly and accessible
