The latest Oregon statewide school report card is out, and state officials are pleased. It shows that more schools are meeting the goal of adequate yearly progress than were meeting the goal last year.   More than 71% of schools in the state are meeting that benchmark.   The head of the Bend La Pine Schools says his schools are doing well. “Our assessment is that we are making steady, continuous progress and we are significantly out performing most of our peers in the state of Oregon. And are making the progress to where we want to be in terms of national standards.” Bend La Pine School Superintendent Ron Wilkinson says the focus is to continue to improve. He says the biggest key is getting kids to read by the end of third grade.   Another goal is to get students ready for college is to have students through algebra by ninth grade.   18 of the 27 schools in the Bend La Pine Schools met the State benchmark for annual yearly progress.
