Oregon Department Education Adds 70 Schools to “Must Improve” List, for a Total of 270

October 22, 2019

According to the “must-improve” list released by the Oregon Department of Education, “70 [Oregon] schools have joined the 200 that were already on the list.” While the state is “moving away from federal oversight of education as required by the Every Student Succeeds Act,” according to Intermountain Education Service District Superintendent Mark Mulvihill, “the list can be helpful.” Mulvihill indicated that his team is looking into the data to gain a better understanding of the solutions that will be necessary to improve student performance, including specific demographics that may need improvement, teacher training, aligning teaching to tests, and more.
