Oregon students aren't the only ones in the education system who get graded. Thursday, newly redesigned report cards were unveiled for the States' K-12 public schools and districts.
As part of Oregon's federal waiver application, the new report cards focus on growth and student outcomes. Aside from overall performance ratings, the report cards compare schools to similar population and income demographics. Oregon Department of Education Communications Director, Crystal Greene, says that provides a different perspective as to how a school is performing.
