Thoughtexchange Results to be Shared this Fall

This past spring, the Pendleton School District invited parents, students, staff and community members to be involved in a Thoughtexchange engagement process. Participants were asked to share their thoughts about our schools and then review and prioritize their own thoughts and the thoughts of others. The purpose of the process is to obtain a sense of shared values and priorities to use in the district’s strategic planning process.

During Thoughtexchange, more than 700 individuals responded, sharing 1,537 thoughts and assigning 38,820 stars to their top priorities from across the district. After reviewing the information, the Pendleton School District will share the results this fall.

School Attendance - Every Day Matters

In 2013-2014, the Pendleton School District’s attendance rate was 93%. The PSD strives not only toward 100%, but to have the best school attendance rate in Oregon.

National research shows a clear connection between chronic student absenteeism and poor performance in school and on standardized tests.

Poor attendance in the first month of school can predict chronic absence for the entire school year.

Missing just 2 days a month means a child misses 10% of the school year.
