Office of the Superintendent
Friends and colleagues,
The 2014-15 school year was truly remarkable! Student achievement, staff accolades, and program accomplishments made the year a significant one indeed!
Student achievement. For the first time in its history, Hermiston high school won the title of Oregon 5A champions in football. The lady bulldogs also had a fantastic year as well, winning 2nd place in basketball. And not to be out done, HHS wrestling maintained the state title in a hard fought season win over Hillsboro capping its third straight title in a row. Academic achievement continues to improve across the school district with graduation rates soaring past statewide averages and two level five “model schools” identified. The district was one of only eight in the state to meet all of its annual measurable academic objectives for English learners.
These achievements are tangible evidence that Hermiston is a community that is dedicated to becoming the premier district in the State of Oregon. To that end, we settled on a 10 year strategic plan for the future: Vision 2025.
Other notable achievements during the past year include: the construction and sale of our first student build residential home, an early childhood partnership with Umatilla County Headstart, implementation of full day kindergarten, economic impact of various district events, prudent stewardship of fiscal resources, and support for the arts and music.
Hermiston is a remarkable place to live, work and raise a family!
