From the Superintendent:
Welcome to Scappoose,
If you are new to our District, we are so glad you have chosen us to be your education provider; if you are returning we truly appreciate the trust you have put in us.
Our Mission Statement is very easy to remember and, although short, clearly messages our focus to the world: “We Prepare Our Students for the Future”.
This statement is direct and lacks ambivalence; we anticipate that all students will learn, and what they learn will prepare them for their future so that they will have a solid foundation of skills and knowledge to build upon. Our goal is that Scappoose Alumni will have real autonomy over their choices for their future.
This year Scappoose School District will be implementing Response To Intervention for K-8. This model builds a system of supports around every student, at whatever level of achievement, through scheduling, staffing, frequent assessment, and applicable educational materials. RTI has been very successful in many other districts, where student achievement at all levels has shown promising growth.
We will also be reinforcing our focus on Common Core State Standards and learning with further support of student skills in problem solving, analysis and research. Writing will be a District focus again this year. As teacher support, we will be piloting a new teacher coach position. Again, Scappoose High School students will continue to be able to choose from a broad range of college dual credit, Advanced Placement and applied skills classes. This year we have the addition of Drama and Theater to our elective selection.
We are very proud of our District, our Staff and our Students. Our achievements are diverse and we are always seeking to improve on past successes. We are obviously pleased with last year's successes, but we are most proud at being selected for the OSAA 4A Schools State Sportsmanship Award. It epitomizes a fundamental value of our District.
