QUOTE OF THE WEEk: " Dear IRS, please remove me from you mailing list."
Dear Parents and Community Members,
The yearly School and District Report Cards are now on the ODE site and ready for public viewing. To view the report cards, go to the Oregon Department of Education website and follow these directions:
Go to “District Selection” (the second horizontal blue bar in the middle of the page) and select a school district from the drop-down list box. We are listed as Harney County SD 4 and Harney County Union High SD 1J. Then select “English Report Card” and the report card will come up.
The elementary report card is complete, with all test results and information submitted by me included in the report. Unfortunately, due to an error in ODE’s system, the information I submitted for the high school report cards was not transferred to the report, so I am including it here. However, the test data is included on pages three and four so you are able to see our results from the 2012-13 school year.
In the 2012-13 school year Crane Union High School received an Overall State Rating of 5 on a 5 point scale. That means that our students are performing well above average in both reading and math compared to schools with similar student demographics. Our four year graduation rate is currently 92.3% average, with 100% of our students graduating in the spring of 2013.
Key academic highlights:
97.6% met/exceeded state standards for reading
82.9% met/exceeded state standards for math
52.2% met state standard for writing
92.3% 4 year graduation rate
100% graduation rate in 2013
Our Writing Lab class is designed to give struggling students extra assistance in their individual areas of weakness, and allow them the opportunity to pass the state writing requirement through work samples.
In the coming year, we will work to increase the level of achievement in writing through the use of a Writing Lab and a school wide emphasis on writing skills. We will also offer supplemental support through our school-wide Title I program, with the goal of meeting the academic needs of each of our students.
