The Oregon Department of Education released a report card for K-12 public schools and Bend La Pine Schools show mostly outstanding rates; but there were a couple of red flags.

 

La Pine and Marshall High Schools were cited for "needs improvement."

 

Superintendent Ron Wilkinson says the data the state received was incomplete, especially for La Pine High, and does not reflect the true achievements of the school.  "Their achievement was at the highest level it's ever been. They were rated outstanding in both math and reading in terms of their achievement level. The issue that set them back was on a graduation rate. And actually we sent some additional data to the State Department [of Education] that would have raised their rating based on graduation rate, even in that area because of some misinformation the state has but it wasn't received by the state in time to change the rating for this year."

 

Wilkinson says the state has adopted the previously used “5-point rating system” for the next rating period, and that system is a truer representation of a child growth.
