Seven Oregon City Schools Rated Outstanding on State Report Card

The report cards are designed to communicate and celebrate the many good things that are happening in schools. The report card may also assist in initiating discussions about areas targeted for improvement. Demonstrating that schools are accountable, the report card displays consistent and reliable information about academic achievement, attendance, graduation, participation, and student growth, in addition to key school statistics, demographics, and an overall rating. This will be the final year Oregon releases the current version of the school report cards. As part of the state’s federal flexibility waiver, the school report cards will be redesigned to provide better information to parents and communities on how our students, schools, and districts are doing.

Kicking off the School Year with Kickball

Recently, staff from around the district organized into teams to compete in a kickball tournament. The event took place at the John McLoughlin field and provided a great opportunity for staff to "kick off" the new school year. Everyone that attended had a great time and the Oregon City Service Learning Academy team earned bragging rights for the year by winning the tournament.

Special thanks to:

  • Lynn Barry for organizing the event
  • Todd Kemhus for setting up the fields
  • Cameron Seward, Bjorn Fernaeus, Bud Nodurft and Travis Nodurft for all the great photos

Top Five Reasons for Students to Ride the School Bus

1. Increased Safety! Riding the school bus is nearly 800% safer* than traveling by passenger car. In fact, school busses are the safest* form of transportation.

School buses also help keep our campuses and neighborhoods safer. Each additional passenger car adds congestion and danger for all students on or near school grounds.

2. It saves money! It saves families from having to buy additional and expensive gas and reduces our dependence on foreign oil.

3. It’s Green! It serves as a good example to our children about the importance of keeping our planet healthy. Each year school buses help keep an estimated 17.3 million cars* off the roads surrounding schools each morning!

4. Reduced congestion! Most school parking lots are already well over capacity. With additional students going to our middle schools we are expecting increased congestion. In many cases students who ride the bus will arrive home before their peers that get picked up in a passenger car.

5. Student downtime! Students can enjoy time with friends, listening to music or reflecting on their day. Our transportation department is committed to ensuring a physically and emotionally safe environment on each bus. Our bus drivers have been trained in the Positive Behavior Support program that each school uses.

If you have any questions feel free to call the transportation department at 503-785-8540.
