2016-17 Annual Notice for Statewide Tests

Each spring, Oregon students in grades 3-8 and 11 participate in state assessments in English Language Arts and Math. Rather than multiple-choice questions, today’s tests ask students to explain their reasoning and, often, write out their answers. The new assessments measure more complex skills such as critical-thinking, writing, and problem solving so that schools and parents can assess whether children are on-track to graduate high school ready for college or a career.

The Oregon Department of Education has developed an Annual Notice for Statewide Tests that includes more information about Oregon’s State Tests and how you can stay informed. This annual notice is provided in English and Spanish.

If you have any questions feel free to contact your student’s principal.

Final Water Quality Testing Results

Creswell School District has concluded corrective actions for the three (3) fixtures where elevated lead levels were identified during summer testing.

Fixtures with elevated levels on first draw, during summer testing, included:

  • Creswell High School Metal Shop, Entryway Fountain,
  • Creswell High School Science Supply Room Sink, and
  • Creswell High School Main Gym, Upstairs Fountain.

The Science Supply Room Sink was determined to be nonessential by school and district staff. As a result of that determination, the District chose to decommission the sink and cap the water source. If that decision is reversed at a future time, the District will install new fixtures and collect a water sample for testing.

The Metal Shop, Entry Fountain and Main Gym, Upstairs Fountain received new fixtures. After the completion of repairs, follow-up water samples were collected according to the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) testing guidelines for sampling water in schools. Test results showed normal levels.

The District used a drinking water laboratory accredited by the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) to analyze water samples for lead.
