McKay Family Night a Success for Scholarship Knowledge

Scholarships, scholarships, scholarships, that was theme of our family night on Monday. We had close to 80 students and family members show up and learn about the process for finding and applying scholarships. Special thanks to Lacy Tolle, from the Office of Student Access and Completion (OSAC), who talked about having a strong personal statement and how with one application, students have access to over 600 scholarships! Mr. Brooks also did a fabulous job showing our community how to use the College Board Scholarship Search. We are very thankful for all of the staff, students, and families who make this possible!”

Oregon Department of Education Releases School and District Report Cards

The Oregon Department of Education (ODE) produces yearly at-a-glance profiles for schools and districts. These reports, called for by the 1999 state legislature, provide educators with an opportunity to communicate directly with parents and community members about how local schools are performing.

ODE redesigned the school and district profiles in 2018, with input from parents and families who represent students and student groups who are historically underserved.
