Scappoose School District

From the 

Scappoose School District is a very special place; learning is our focus and a promising future for our students is our goal as we emphasize academic progress, personal growth, achievement, and community participation.

Students in the Scappoose School District are continually being monitored by assessments to ensure they are learning. We provide time for our staff to analyze the data to make individual decisions about supports for students. Our Response to Intervention program for grades K-8 is firmly in place for Reading and Math. Students are assessed using DIBELS and STAR at the elementary level throughout the year. Each student’s progress is measured and supports or enrichments are provided.

We are proud of the success Scappoose High School has with graduation rates. We have one of the highest graduation rates in the state. We have a thriving Career & Technical Education program and will expand these opportunities with our partnership with Portland Community College this year. We are preparing for the Oregon Manufacturing Innovative Center that will be in the County. We will also be in our first year of fully implementing AVID at the high school. AVID trains educators to use proven practices in order to prepare students for success in high school, college, and a career, especially students traditionally underrepresented in higher education. The middle school is spending this year planning for full implementation in the following year.  

Our district report card shows that we have some strengths, but we also have areas where we need to grow. Math is an area that we are continuing to monitor our practice and approach to raise the standards for our students. We, also, are always looking at attendance because we know students can’t learn if they are not present at school.

Our goal is always to focus on maintaining high standards. We are constantly seeking to improve our service. You can help by volunteering, encouraging all students in their studies, monitoring homework, and reaching out to teachers. You are vital partners in your students' success, we know that the the connection between home and school must be strong for students to make the most of their education. We ask for your support in helping us to provide a quality school district for all our students.

Thank you,

 Ron Alley  Superintendent

While Scappoose School District always encourages visitors, we are also aware of the need to ensure the safety and security of our students and staff.
