STEM Manufacturing by Design is an innovative project that was selected to receive a Career and Technical Education Revitalization grant.

School and district report cards are now available. Each of our schools and the district have a report card with information including student demographics, performance on state assessments, student outcomes and educational programs. Like last year, schools did not receive an overall rating on their report card due to the state’s plans to redesign the report card in response to new flexibility under the federal Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). Next year, ODE will release a redesigned report card aimed at sharing information that is meaningful and accessible to parents, families and the broader school community. To access our school and district report cards, please visit the “Quick Links – Oregon Report Card”
