El Distrito Escolar del Condado de Morrow está contento en informar que nuestros alumnos superaron los datos de comparación distritos en 5 de 6 medidas de desempeño resultados en como los estudiantes están logrando en la escuelas secundaria. En comparación con los distritos con características demográficas similares, tales como los niveles de pobreza, la diversidad de su alumnado, y la movilidad de alumnos, Estudiantes 12º grado in MCSD superaron alumnos de comparación distritos en la preparación universitaria y profesional (medida por el porcentaje de estudiantes que tomaron el SAT), la tasa de graduación de la escuela secundaria , la tasa de finalización, y la tasa de abandono escolar.

Como parte de nuestra solicitud para recibir una exención  federal, Oregon desarrolló un nuevo sistema de asignación de responsabilidades con un mayor enfoque en el aprendizaje y el crecimiento de los estudiantes. Las escuelas también reciben una clasificación que las compara con escuelas "similares" -otras escuelas con características demográficas similares de estudiantes incluyendo porcentajes de pobreza, movilidad, estudiantes de color, y estudiantes que están aprendiendo inglés. Las escuelas son clasificadas como debajo del promedio, cerca del promedio o por encima del promedio en comparación con escuelas similares. Esto proporciona a los padres y miembros de la comunidad otra perspectiva sobre el logro de la escuela.

El Distrito Escolar del Condado de Morrow tiene 8 escuelas dentro del distrito que recibió una calificación. La mitad de las escuelas dentro del distrito dio un fuerte desempeño. Sobre los nuevos criterios de calificación escolar del estado, que tasas las escuelas de un 1 (el rendimiento más bajo) a 5 (rendimiento escolar modelo). Este año AC Houghton, Heppner Elementary, Windy River y Heppner Jr/Sr High han alcanzado una calificación de nivel 4. Irrigon Junior / Senior High, Riverside Junior / Senior High, Sam Boardman Elementary  alcanzó el nivel 3 de rendimiento, mientras que la escuela Irrigon Elementary obtuvo una clasificación de nivel 2.

2012-2013 ODE Report Cards are available online

Morrow County School District is pleased to report that our students outperformed comparison districts data on 5 of 6 outcome performance measures as it relates to how students are achieving in High School.   Compared to districts with similar demographics, such as poverty levels, diversity of their student body, and pupil mobility, MCSD Seniors outperformed their counterparts in college and career readiness (as measured by the percentage of students who took the SAT), high school graduation rate, completion rate, and dropout rate.

As part of our federal waiver application, Oregon developed a new accountability system with a much greater focus on student learning and growth. Schools also receive a rating that compares them to "like" schools – other schools with similar student demographics including percent poverty, mobility, students of color, and English learners. Schools are rated as below average, about average, or above average as compared to similar schools. This provides parents and community members with another perspective on achievement at the school.

MCSD has 8 schools within the district that received a rating.  Half of the schools within the district yielded strong performance based on the new state school rating criteria, which rates schools from a 1 (lowest performance) to 5 (model school performance).  This year A.C. Houghton, Heppner Elementary, Windy River Elementary and Heppner High School have attained a Level 4 rating. Irrigon Junior/Senior High, Riverside Junior/Senior High, Sam Boardman Elementary achieved level 3 performance, while Irrigon Elementary School obtained a level 2 rating.
