• SHS Graduation Rate is 3.8 % Higher than Reported for the Class of 2015   

    January 28, 2016

    Graduation rates for all schools in Oregon were released today. The state average is 73.8% and Siuslaw High School’s graduation rate is reported as 67.2%. The Oregon Department of Education (ODE) allows a window of time to make corrections to the data from schools, but clerical errors were discovered outside of that window. Some students transferred to schools outside of the State. While proper record requests were processed, these transfers were not recorded in their electronic records and not removed from the graduation cohort calculations. Though we are unable to make the corrections for this year, we will be able to correct the error for next year and our five year cohort grad rate will see a significant improvement. With corrections, the Siuslaw High School Four-Year Cohort graduation rate is 71.05%, demonstrating a district increase of 3.8% in the graduation rate. Continued...

  • 2015-2016 Notice for Statewide Tests

    Dear Siuslaw School District Parents/Guardians,

    Here is some important information about this school year’s state tests:

    Each spring, Oregon students in grades 3-8 and 11 participate in state assessments in English Language Arts and Math. Rather than multiple-choice questions, today’s tests ask students to explain their reasoning and, often, write out their answers. The new assessments measure more complex skills such as critical-thinking, writing, and problem solving so that schools and parents can assess whether children are on-track to graduate from high school ready for college or a career.

    Students will take the state tests again this coming spring. While the tests in English Language Arts and Math cannot tell us everything about your child’s academic progress, the results do act as a snapshot of your child’s strengths and areas for improvement in those subject areas. The tests help our school district get a more complete and accurate picture of how all Siuslaw students are performing. As we assess curriculum, review instructional strategies, distribute resources and work to improve our educational system, our students’ performance overall is a big factor in planning and decision-making.

    Siuslaw School District has always had a high participation rate on state assessments as both parents and staff have found value in this “point-in-time” check on the progress of our students and our educational system. However, parents in Oregon have the option to opt their children out of state assessments this spring. Should you wish to opt your child out, please read the information carefully and then print, complete, and return the form to the main office of your child’s school by February 9th, 2016.

    Please see the Parent Opt Out FAQ if you have general questions or want more information about the Oregon State Assessments.

    If you have additional questions, please contact your child’s building principal.

    Sincerely,

    Ethel Angal

    snow        Adverse Weather Notification

    Our school district uses the National Weather Service to guide our decisions about school closures or activity cancellations. 

    The transportation department and administration closely monitor the local weather and the forecasts throughout the day.  Below is a list of media outlets that will carry emergency information. We will also have any changes posted on the district website and will institute our automated phone messaging system to get the information out to families as early as possible. Please make sure that the schools have any changes in your contact information as we head into winter storm season.

    If parents or guardians feel it is unsafe for their children to attend school during inclement weather events, they may call the school office to excuse their child from school. Please know that we don’t make these decisions lightly and will continue to carefully monitor weather situations.

    In the event of adverse weather, please click here for information on where to tune to receive updated information on possible closures, delays or early dismissals.
