Oregon’s graduation rate, among worst in nation, inches up 1 percent
Newberg Graduation Rate Climbs
We are so proud of all of the hard work that Newberg High School has been doing around All means All and graduation. The four-year graduation rate for the Class of 2016 is 79.3%. We have seen a steady improvement over the past 4 years and are very excited about our latest numbers. Great work Newberg High School!
Inclement Weather Update
At the January 26 State Board Meeting they decided to allow flexibility in school instructional hours. If recommended by the superintendent, a school district’s board can take action and request that the use of 14 hours of inclement weather time be reinstituted for the 2016-17 school year. At this point, we do not need to take this step and I am hopeful we have seen all our snow days for the year. Here is a link to an article in the Portland Tribune.
School visits next week
While these past few weeks have been extremely busy and there is no end in sight, I have decided to combine some mid-year talks with school visits. It will be dedicated time for me to sit down with Principals and have meaningful discussions about what is going on in their buildings, what they feel that could be going better and to celebrate accomplishments. Some of these mid-year discussions will occur out in buildings and some will be here at the District Office.
