ODE Releases State & LOCAL Student Academic Results
|State Report Cards|

News Release: Oct. 13, 2016
Administrators with Lincoln County School District (LCSD) are reviewing results of the 2015-16 state assessments in English/Language Arts, Math, and Science to see how local students are performing academically.
They are reviewing results with an eye on the school board's three-year goal of all LCSD schools performing at or above the state average, as measured by the Oregon Department of Education. This year two of the school board goal.
While much of the content of the report cards is similar to those of years past, there are a few significant differences to note this year. Given the recent passage of the federal Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) and the expiration of Oregon's ESEA flexibility waiver, the school report cards do not contain an overall school rating or a comparison school rating.
The report cards still contain assessment results, with the baseline year established in 2014-15. These tests are only one measure of students’ academic success.
A review of the data released by the Oregon Department of Education (ODE) shows improvement in most areas of the district. However, one notable highlight is that language arts scores went up for all grades, and district high school scores far exceeded the state average. Math scores went up at the elementary and high school level, but the middle school level scores were below our targets. We are continuing to adjust our strategies to meet the changing demographic, and have new online tools to help.
Superintendent Steve Boynton noted the District is focusing on raising the level of achievement for all children. “Although we have our work cut out for us, I am confident we can achieve our goal. We are lucky to have hard working and dedicated staff, willing to go the extra mile for our students,” commented Superintendent Steve Boynton.
The reports are listed above and are available online, for current and past years, on the Oregon Department of Education website (www.ode.state.or.us).
