Flash Alert - Police Activity

posted Jan 12, 2018, 4:50 PM by Lisa Poehlitz

As you have likely heard, there was a police incident north of The Ridges campus today. Students were dismissed on time. The district office learned of this incident about 3:05 after students were dismissed. Some buses were delayed due to road closures and returned to schools. Students on those buses were held inside the school,  their parents were notified,  and school doors were locked until the incident was resolved. It was incorrectly reported by various media outlets that Laurel Ridge Middle School was in lockout.  

Community Celebrates School Board Recognition Month!

posted Jan 10, 2018, 1:33 PM by Kristen Delaney

The Sherwood School District will join with the other 196 school districts throughout Oregon to celebrate January as “School Board Recognition Month,” Superintendent Heather Cordie announced on Monday, January 1. 

“Our school board members spend countless hours of unpaid time working to provide the best possible education for our students,” said district Superintendent Cordie. “They also serve as the corporate board of directors for one of our community’s largest employers. Celebrating School Board Recognition Month is one way to say thanks for all they do.”

School board members represent their fellow citizens’ views and priorities in the complex enterprise of maintaining and running the community’s public schools. They also reinforce the principle of local control over public education, which is an important, highly valued aspect of education in Oregon.

At our January 10th Board meeting, the Sherwood School District will honor its Board by recognizing each member and presenting each school's library with a book donated in honor of the Board of Directors.  Sherwood Interim Mayor Lee Weislogel will also be in attendance on behalf of the City of Sherwood to read the City's proclamation of January as School Board Recognition month.

 “Even though we are making a special effort during January to show appreciation for our school board members, we recognize their contributions reflect a year-round effort on their part. They are dedicated individuals who are committed to improving student achievement and to fighting for the best for all of our students,” Cordie said.

The Oregon Department of Education (ODE) released report cards last week for K-12 schools across the state, evaluating their performances for the 2016-17 school year. Sherwood schools generally received high marks.

The ODE also released data of comparison schools, that is, schools with demographics similar to Sherwood School District schools. The District had higher rates of students meeting College and Career Readiness benchmarks on the Smarter Balanced Assessment (SBA) than the state average in all subjects and grade levels. The district also compared favorably to its comparison schools which are some of the highest performing schools in the state.
