The Adequate Yearly Progress report from the Oregon Department of Education on Lincoln County schools show another mixed bag of academic achievement. Schools that met overall adequate yearly progress were Crestview Heights Elementary in Walport, Eddyville Charter School, Isaac Newton Magnet School, Newport High, Oceanlake Elementary in Lincoln City, Sam Case Elementary in Newport, Siletz Valley Elementary and Waldport High School.
Schools that failed to make adequate yearly progress, overall, were Newport Intermediate, Newport Preparatory Academy, Siletz Valley School, Taft Elementary and High schools, Toledo Elementary and High schools. Not as yet getting a score is Lincoln City Career Technical High School.
Overall comparisons between the schools suggest a slip in English Language Arts and Math across the board. Also, graduation rates didn’t meet adequate yearly progress.
Looking at what kinds of students were still under-performing in reading, students with disabilities stood out as lagging at all levels. Middle School students who know little English fell back, as well as Latino students at the high school level. For math, all students at middle and high schools fell beneath adequate yearly progress. It was especially bad for low income students, those with disabilities in middle school and high school, students with limited English in middle school, Latino students in high school, and Native American students across all grades. White students met adequate yearly progress in all grades for both math and reading.
The district released some figures for what’s called OAKS Math scores looking at the last five years. Those math scores show that Crestview Elementary is up 20% over the past five years. Eddyville is up 2%, Newport High +11%, Newport Intermediate +14%, Newport Prep +10%, Oceanlake +15%, Sam Case Elementary +30%, Siletz Valley School -17%, Siletz ECA +25%, Taft 7-12 +11%, Taft Elementary +17%, Toledo 7-12 -3%, Toledo Elementary +19%, and Waldport High +5%.
For reading scores over the past five years, Crestview Elementary +18%, Eddyville -7%, Newport Intermediate +4%, Newport Preparatory +4%, Newport High +26%, Oceanlake Elementary +5%, Sam Case Elementary -7%, Siletz Valley -21%, Siletz ECA +9%, Taft Elementary +5%, Taft 7-12 +15%, Toledo Elementary + 10%, Toledo 7-12 +12%, and Waldport High +4%.
