The Oregon Department of Education recently released report cards for K-12 schools across the state, evaluating their performance for the 2013-14 school year.  Sherwood schools received high marks, with all schools receiving a Level 4 or Level 5.  Level 5 is the highest rating, signifying the top 10% of schools in the state.

Archer Glen Elementary School, Edy Ridge Elementary School, Laurel Ridge Middle School, and Sherwood High School were each rated at Level 5.  Hopkins Elementary School, Middleton Elementary School, and Sherwood Middle School were rated at Level 4.  Sherwood schools were among Oregon’s top performers.

At the school level, the district has conducted a thorough examination of school data and have determined areas of improvement.  Each school has identified specific goals to increase academic achievement and has prepared plans to address these goals.  During the 2014-15 budget cycle, funds were committed to align math curriculum across grade levels, provide professional development in math, and continue to invest in math intervention at the elementary and middle school levels. 

Superintendent Dr. Heather Cordie stated, “We are proud of the success of all our schools and are thankful to have dedicated teachers and classified staff that are strongly invested in our students. Sherwood School District will continue to seek ways to improve instruction for all of our students.”

Sherwood School District is in the process of developing a district-wide strategic plan that will guide school improvement efforts.  Approximately 40 stakeholders participated in the visioning process which began in September, including teachers, administrators, school staff, the Board of Directors, and community representatives.  More information will be shared by the district as the strategic plan continues to develop.
