PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - The state Department of Education has given Oregon public schools their report cards, and some show marked improvement.

The Oregonian (https://bit.ly/Zu8vXT) reports 28 schools rose from the ranks of worst performers, and 49 more were ranked as top performers. But 19 others fell to the bottom rankings.

The report cards rank Oregon’s 1,204 public schools in five groups, based largely on progress on reading and math tests and, for high schools, their success at graduating students.

Among top schools, 25 percent have high numbers of students qualifying for subsidized meals. They’re considered “model schools.” Oregon schools chief Rob Saxton says they show that all Oregon schools can have “incredible success.”

Oregon uses the report cards as an alternative to ratings prescribed by the federal No Child Left Behind law.
