The Philomath School District outperforms the state average when it comes to the rate of students on track to graduate, according to the Oregon Department of Education’s annual school and district report cards.
The reports, which were released Thursday, include profiles of schools and districts featuring various types of data such as average class size, attendance rates, graduation rates and standardized testing results. The department also publishes accountability reports that rate some schools as needing state assistance.
A lot of the data in the reports, such as graduation rates and standardized testing results, has already been published by the department. Among the new information provided is the rates of students on track to graduate, which shows the percentage of students who have completed one quarter of the credits needed to graduate after their first year in high school.
