State Releases Annual Education Report Card
Report offers ‘one stop shop’ for statewide education data
(Salem, Ore.) – Deputy Superintendent Rob Saxton today announced the release of the 2012-13 Statewide Annual Report Card. The report, which has been produced since 1992, contains key information, data, trends, and demographics on Oregon’s K-12 public education system and reports on progress toward meeting key educational goals.
“Education has never been more important to our students or our state,” said Deputy Superintendent Rob Saxton. “We live in the information age and a student’s ability to access, digest, and utilize information will, to a greater extent than ever before, determine that student’s future opportunities and success. Our state is undertaking ambitious education reform efforts designed to significantly impact student outcomes. I hope that the information in this report will serve as a valuable tool in the deeper examination and redesign of our education system.”
The 2012-13 Statewide Report Card includes:
“We are in an exciting time of change and transformation, and I want to thank everyone involved in education for their continued passion, dedication, and hard work,” said Deputy Superintendent Saxton. “As I reflect on the past school year, I am even more excited about continuing the critical work at hand in the months and years to come.”
Below are a few of the changes that impacted information in this year’s Report Card along with highlights from the 2012-13 school year.
Highlights of the 2012-13 School Year
“Improving education in our state will take all of us, but it will also impact and benefit all of us,” said Deputy Superintendent Saxton. “Our students deserve a rigorous, engaging, relevant education that prepares them for the opportunities and challenges they will face upon graduation. Our educators deserve a system that encourages their professional growth and development and supports their success as practitioners. And our state deserves the economic prosperity and engaged citizenry that stems from a robust, effective education system. This report provides a one stop shop where parents, legislators, educators, and community members can examine the issues, trends, and data surrounding education in our state as we work together to build the system we want for the future.”
