509-J engages with community in Madras, Warm Springs
For the second year in a row, leaders from the Jefferson County School District 509-J engaged with community members in evening events in Warm Springs and Madras.
On Feb. 13, and Feb. 20, administrators shared progress on graduation rates, student performance on state math and literacy assessments, student attendance rates, and involvement in athletics and activities, according to Superintendent Ken Parshall.
"The Community Engagement Process involved time for family members and community members to ask questions about the information shared on these targets and make suggestions about how to best approach continued improvement through collaboration among family members and school personnel," said Parshall.
Parshall was proud to report that every targeted area showed improvement during the 2017-18 school year and that school and district leaders expect continued progress this spring on state assessments and graduation rates.
An estimated 60 people attended the dinner and event at the Warm Springs K-8 Academy, but only 20-25 in Madras, at Madras High School.
