Lynne Gross is the U.S. Census Partnership Specialist for the State of Oregon responsible for education outreach, K-12. She is a currently licensed educator and is excited about the Statistics in Schools (PDF) program available from the U.S. Census Bureau.

Information About State Tests
Each spring, Oregon students in grades 3-8 and 11 participate in state assessments in English Language Arts and Math. Additionally, students in grades 5, 8 and 11 participate in science testing. Bethel has always had a high participation rate on state assessments as both parents and staff have found value in this “point-in-time” check on the progress of our students and our educational system. However, parents in Oregon have the option to opt their children out of the state assessments. Click here for more information. (PDF)
