Oregon Statewide Report Card available online

The 2022-23 edition of the Oregon Statewide Report Card is now available on the Oregon Department of Education (ODE) website. This annual look at Oregon’s kindergarten through grade 12 education system includes key data on students, teachers and schools. 

“Academic excellence for students in Oregon remains the top priority for our agency. I took this role to make a difference, and we need to see what the data are telling us and be responsive to that,” Oregon Department of Education Director Dr. Charlene Williams said. 

“Clearly the results show we have more work to do to set Oregon’s students up for success. I care deeply about helping each and every scholar, and know that through centering their needs, aspirations and talents, we can prepare every student for their future.”

The Oregon Statewide Report Card includes new and returning data, most of which has already been released in the last year:

There are 333 unique languages spoken by Oregon students. 

The number of women serving as principals increased by 3 percentage points to 58 percent in 2022-23, compared to 55 percent in 2021-22.

Updated methodology and approach to supporting schools identified for Comprehensive and Targeted Support and Improvement as part of ongoing alignment and integration efforts.

For the fourth year in a row, there’s been an increase in the number of non-binary students reported in fall membership enrollment. 

Ninth Grade On-Track data increased again in 2022-23, compared to 2021-22. The total statewide rate increased by 0.8 percentage points to 83.6 percent and is approaching pre-pandemic levels.
