Division 22 State Standards
By November 1 of each year, school district superintendents are required to report to their community at an open public meeting and local school board the district’s compliance for the previous school year according to Division 22 Standards for Public Schools as set forth in Oregon Administrative Rules 581-022-2305. Districts are also required to post the report to their websites by November 1. Following this report to the Public and the Board on October 21, 2021 the district completed its annual Elementary and Secondary Schools Assurance Form and submitted it to the Oregon Department of Education (ODE) by the required date.
Phoenix-Talent Schools were in compliance with all 57 standards except those that had been waived by the Oregon Department of Education for the school year. Those waived included the following: Assessment of Essential Skills; Kindergarten Assessment; Report on PE Data; Identification of Academically Talented and Intellectually Gifted Students; and Required Instructional Time for which we received a special waiver due to the impact of the Almeda Fire.
We believe in Restorative Justice
Restorative Justice provides a framework for building student accountability and responding to wrongdoing while strengthening student and community relationships. It is not a singular program or process, rather a philosophy and practice based on a core set of principles that emphasize healing and repair over punishment, inclusion over exclusion, and individual accountability with a high level of community support. Restorative justice is increasingly being applied to address youth behavior, rule violations, and to improve school climate and culture. Phoenix High School and Talent Middle School staffs work in partnership with Resolve to implement a whole-school approach to applying restorative practices.
