Gladstone graduation rate again hits historic high
Gladstone High School’s Class of 2020 had a district graduation rate of over 92.81%. The rate, a historic high, is more than 10% above the state average and 14% higher than it was six years ago.

“All of our staff continues to work tirelessly to develop and maintain a positive and supportive educational environment for our students that leads to success,” said Gladstone High School Principal Kevin Taylor. “We have great students who value their education and work hard to meet standards and expectations. We have also initiated support and credit recovery programs to ensure students have every opportunity to graduate on time.”

Distance learning to continue through Spring Break
At a special session on January 27, the Gladstone School Board directed the district to finalize its plan for hybrid learning by March 10. It also decided the district will remain in distance learning through Spring Break.

Factors in the decision included Clackamas County’s COVID-19 metrics, state pandemic guidelines for schools, an anticipated surge in the virus in March or April, and the desire to give employees the opportunity for vaccinations and building immunity before reopening schools.

Gladstone band students share online concert
Teaching band via distance learning is a real challenge because there is no way for musicians to play together. Despite the difficulties, Gladstone Band Teacher Seth Arnold still managed to produce a winter concert video featuring bands from both Kraxberger Middle School and Gladstone High. Enjoy the show!
