Woodburn School Board Votes to not Administer State Assessments

At Tuesday, March 27 night's School Board meeting, board directors passed a resolution not to administer the Smarter Balanced Assessment or other state-mandated tests unless a parent/guardian requests it. This decision was made after considering multiple factors, and it was determined to be in the best approach for meeting students' needs.

What does this mean for Woodburn students?
Schools will continue to assess student learning through school-based metrics.
This decision allows for a focus on instruction for the remainder of the school year.
Teachers and staff will prioritize the instructional core and support both the academic and social-emotional needs of all students.
Parents/guardians may request their child take one or more of the state assessments by contacting the school office by May 24. English language arts and mathematics are available for grades 3-8 and grade 11. Science is available for grades 5, 8 and 11.

This decision does move the district out of compliance with Division 22 standards, and the district will submit a plan to the Oregon Department of Education to administer all state assessments during the 2021-22 school year.

This action allows for students to focus on engaging in learning and completing coursework for their classes by the end of the school year.
