2015-16 Special Education Report Cards

Under the requirements of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) 2004, the Oregon Department of Education publishes an annual Special Education report card for each district.

In reviewing the 2015-16 Report Card, I would like to highlight the following areas where we met or exceeded the state target:

  • Students included in regular classes 80% or more of their day. We have met the state target for the sixth year in a row.
  • Students included in regular classes less than 40% of their day continued to meet the state target for the sixth year in a row.
  • Youth who are no longer in secondary school, had IEPs at the time they left school and within one year of leaving high school were enrolled in higher education or competitively employed: 71%
  • Youth who are no longer in secondary school, had IEPs at the time they left school and within one year of leaving high school were enrolled in higher education or in other post secondary education or training program or competitively employed or in other employment: 77.4%
  • David Douglas was not identified with significant disproportionate representation of racial or ethnic groups in identification of students with disabilities, which meets the state target.

Areas that showed improvement:

  • Students with IEPs graduating with regular diploma: five-year cohort rate increased steadily for past 4 years to 64.2%. State target is 80%
  • Parent survey results show 79.5% report schools facilitated parent involvement as a means of improving services and results.
