On Track For Success Here’s a big reason to attend next week’s parent-teacher conferences. If your child was enrolled last year in the Bethel School District, you will receive an On Track for Success Report. This a research-based, Bethel-created tool that identifies students who are on-track to graduate with a regular Oregon diploma, those who are falling behind, and those who are at-risk of not graduating. An individualized report has been created for each student and teachers will share the report with parents. The On-Track for Success Report is used by our school to help determine the appropriate measures to keep students on-track to graduation.
Bethel has been presenting to schools and districts throughout the northwest interested in its On-Track for Success Report. Be sure to attend parent-teacher conferences for details on your child’s On-Track report.
