District Report Cards Released

The Oregon Department of Education recently released their annual At-A-Glance School profiles, previously called State Report Cards, for all Oregon schools. These reports, called for by the 1999 state legislature, provide educators with an opportunity to communicate directly with parents and community members about how local schools are performing.

ODE redesigned the school and district profiles in 2018, with input from parents and families who represent students and student groups who are historically underserved.

The Elgin School District is providing district and school profiles on the District Report Card page. If you would like more information about the district, please visit the ODE website school and district profiles page.
