Well done, Canby School District. We are above average! Our graduation rate was 86% last year compared to the state’s 74% average. http://www.pamplinmedia.com/cby/147-news/291899-169260-crushing-the-average
I know our Oregon teachers work tirelessly and are very dedicated to their students’ learning. We’re all rooting for the teachers and kids of Oregon to keep improving the graduation rate.
When I was a high school English teacher in inner city Des Moines, Iowa I had to fail several of my students every term. It was very disheartening. There are many factors involved in students dropping out of school, and I’m glad there are so many supports in place now to help them stay the course.
