Earlier today, April 27, 2017, the Oregon Board of Education 
and the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde 
have officially approved the request 
by the Scappoose School District to retain the Indians mascot. 
From the Superintendent:

"Listen to the mustn'ts, child.  Listen to the don'ts.  Listen to the shouldn'ts, the impossibles, the won'ts.  Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me... Anything can happen, child. Anything can be." ~Shel Silverstein

Our world is full of 'can'ts', but Scappoose School District staff strive to reach 'can' and like Shel Silverstein attain any possibility.  Our district's size belies our successes in multiple areas of student achievement and we love to be challenged to always do better for our students.  Our graduation rate at 92% outranks many districts in our state.  Through our comprehensive K-12 district local student assessment system we are able to track essential academic progress for all groups or individual students. Using Response To Intervention (RTI) we can attend to individual student learning needs and assist students to reach on-track progress;  moreover, using PBIS we can coach social and behavioral skills.  At our high school our students have a wide choice of core and elective programs, which are always in development.  These include several dual high school/college credit  and Advanced Placement (AP) courses.

We boast a full music program, support of the arts, wonderful community support, a successful athletics program and a developing focus on technology in education.  So while we acknowledge the negatives and limitations that exist in public education today, we don't dwell on them or let them overwhelm our desire to grab hold of opportunities to "... prepare our students for the future".  We remember that whether students, staff, families or community, we are all in this together and our future depends on us educating the 'whole child'.

Visitors to Schools

Please be aware that in line with recent policy deliberations by the Scappoose School Board, we remind Visitors to Schools that all visitors to schools are required to sign in with each school office if they have business in a school.  Patrons will be required to wear a badge throughout their visit and must be authorized for that visit by the Principal or their designee.

While Scappoose school district always encourages visitors, we are also aware of the need to ensure the safety and security of our students and staff.

Thank you for your continued understanding and cooperation in our efforts to protect your children and provide an undisturbed educational environment for their learning.

Scappoose Administration

 Charter Schools
Charter Schools were established to provide an alternative choice for parents under the public school district structural “umbrella.”  They are a “choice option.”  Charter schools generally provide a non-conventional flavor that
