Active parent and community volunteer groups play an important role in the education of our students. Many other parents and community members serve on planning and advisory committees and others volunteer thousands of hours each year in our schools.
Our district is continuing to pursue new directions!
We have many teachers and administrators presently involved in "results-oriented learning" - the Oregon Way. Key Oregon results-oriented learning purposes are: to equip all students with the knowledge, competencies, and orientations needed for future success and to implement programs and conditions that maximize learning success for all students. We have been developing our instructional delivery practices to encompass the Oregon learner-centered learning philosophy and have been rewarded with improved student achievement. Teachers who have adopted this method of teaching report significantly increased student performance, with positive student attitude and acceptance of the new approach.
It is an exciting time in Oregon. We strongly believe that
"Oregon Schools are great… and getting better!"
