Morrow County School District is pleased to report that its students outperformed comparison school districts data on 5 of 6 outcome performance measures as it relates to what 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 freshman on track to graduate and the percentage of students who took the SAT), high school graduation rate, completion rate, dropout rate and continuing education.

As part of the state’s 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. Half of the schools within the District yielded strong performances based on the new state school rating criteria, which rates schools from a 1 (lowest performance) to 5 (model school performance).

This year Heppner Elementary and Heppner High School have attained a Level 4 rating. A.C. Houghton, Windy River Elementary, Irrigon Junior/Senior High, Riverside Junior/Senior High, and Sam Boardman Elementary achieved level 3 performance, while Irrigon Elementary School obtained a level 2 rating.
