We would like to offer some clarity on our graduation requirements in regards to the headlines floating around right now about Oregon graduation requirements. We want to assure our families and communities that Oregon and Morrow County School District continue to maintain high graduation expectations for all of our students. • Senate Bill 744 requires a review of Oregon graduation requirements and a pause on the Essential Skills requirement for graduation (passing the state test or similar assessment in reading, writing, and math) to determine if the requirement is still appropriate in relation to college and employer needs. • credit requirements for Oregon diplomas remain • MCSD offers multiple diploma types that are at or above the requirements in the Oregon diploma • MCSD also recognizes the importance of career planning and currently requires students to complete two credits in an area related to the student’s career interests. • MCSD teachers and administrators are committed to providing quality instruction in all subjects (core and elective). • MCSD utilizes frequent assessments to assess student learning • MCSD offers both on campus and remote college level courses for high school students in each community. • We remain committed to working collaboratively with the businesses within Morrow County to provide our students with the skills to be successful in today’s workforce.

Like everyone, Morrow County School District was disappointed to hear that Governor Kate Brown has placed a new mask mandate on Oregon public schools after announcing in June that we would all have local control of COVID-19 protocols. While Morrow County COVID-19 rates have returned to the numbers we were seeing last fall, we feel that we have safety protocols in place that would allow our schools to operate safely in-person. We understand and share the frustrations of our families and ask everyone to understand that school boards and administrators have little room to defy this order without risking daily fines imposed on the district and risks of sanctions on the licenses of our teachers and administrators. What can families and community members do to help advocate for a return to local control? Contacting your state representatives and the Governor’s office through the complaint link is a start. https://www.oregon.gov/gov/pages/share-your-opinion.aspx It is important that we work together in returning local control to the school district. As we continue to navigate state updates, MCSD will remain committed to providing full-day, everyday education programs for all of our students to include in-person and virtual options.

We would like to share with families and the public that Morrow County School District expects to fully reopen schools to full-day, in-person learning this fall. We maintain those expectations through guidance from the Oregon Department of Education and its Ready Schools, Safe Learners Resiliency Framework for the 2021-22 School Year. Currently we anticipate that we will be able to return to school with the optional use of face coverings by students and staff as well as full use of our bussing system. For families that have found online or school at home works better for them, we will continue to provide this opportunity through our online school at MEC. There are always many details to opening school in the fall, and this year those details will include things like COVID-19 safety measures. We of course will continue to partner with public health officials and plan to keep families updated as we finalize those details as we move into August.
