Lincoln County Schools administrators and teachers get their own report cards….

The Oregon Department of Education has shared all graduation and dropout rates across the state and for each school district. The Lincoln County School District showed an overall graduation rate of 76.06% for students who started together (as a group) as freshmen in 15-16). The LCSD’s rate of graduation of 426 students went from 81.99% down to 76.06%. This is a decrease of 5.93%. In the 5-year group 430 students graduated and the rate increased by 4.27% to 85.12% up from 80.85% last year.

 

Superintendent Dr. Karen Gray shared her opinion about the graduation and dropout rates, “While it is unsettling to see the numbers of graduates decline for our 4-year group graduates, we do see a marked increase in our graduation rates for those in the 5-year groups. When reviewing the numbers, we must keep in mind that we are investing heavily in our students and have made many strides in what we offer to prepare graduates to be college and career ready by the time they walk across the graduation stage. The School Board has been working on community engagement and a new Strategic Plan that will be rolled out this upcoming year. The Lincoln County School District will be able to access up to approximately $4.6 million state-funded dollars through the Student Success Act that will allow us to develop and expand our interventions for those who have been historically under-served such as our students of color, economically disadvantaged, students experiencing a disability and emergent bilingual populations.”

 

“We have effective and inspiring programs in place in our school district,” said Gray. “We are not just numbers but unique educational experiences and caring relationships. In Lincoln County Schools we want our students to be engaged in their education and excited about their future. Just a few examples of what is happening this year include new programs in natural resources management, welding, visual arts, and design, AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination), new reading curriculum K-10, and trauma-informed care. Next year we add a new math curriculum. In addition, we continue to offer meals at no charge to all of our students.”

 

Not all students will move onto a four-year college degree but we want all of our students to have the essential skills in place to have that as a genuine option and to be future-ready. We will see these numbers climb again for our 4-year cohorts as well as our 5-year cohorts which surpasses the state average. I say that boldly because I have every confidence in our students, staff, administration, school board, and community.”
