Scappoose School District
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'.

 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
governs the school’s culture….. more

Open Enrollment

Oregon law requires each school district to decide annually by March 1 whether they will accept applications for the following school year from students living outside district boundaries.  The Scappoose School Board approved how many spots will be available each year; at each grade level.

For the 2017-18 school year, applications will be available starting March 1, 2017, and accepted through March 31, 2017.  We are accepting applications for the following grades:

Kindergarten - No cap
1st grade - 15 slots
2nd grade - 20 slots
6th grade - 20 slots
7th grade - 30 slots
8th grade - 30 slots
9th grade - 20 slots

To apply, complete the application form and return to the Scappoose School District at 33589 SE High School Way; Scappoose, OR  97056.  If there are more applicants for a grade level than open spots, a lottery will determine admission.  You will be notified of the outcome in writing by May 1, 2017.

Those admitted are considered permanent residents of this district until they choose to leave.  Transportation is the responsibility of the family.

Scappoose School District will be offering two opportunities to attend Kindergarten Round-up:

·         Tuesday, May 2, 2017, at Warren Elementary - 5:30 - 7:30 p.m.

·         Tuesday, May 9, 2017, at Grant Watts - 5:30 - 7:30 p.m.

You are welcome to attend either meeting or both; the information presented will be the same at both schools.  Registration packets will be available at that time.  

Snow Days Make-up
