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'.
