Full-time classroom learning planned this fall
Gladstone schools anticipate a full return to classroom learning this fall, as an increasing number of adults and teens receive COVID-19 vaccines.
To maintain student safety, schools will maximize outdoor air flow by boosting ventilation systems this summer. They will also follow state COVID-19 safety guidelines to protect student health and minimize spread of the disease.
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.”
