Food Distribution Hubs - Ending June 9, 2020

With our district's school year coming to a close, Tuesday, June 9 will be the last day of service for our district's food distribution hubs. All meal bags provided on Tuesday will contain additional meals for the remainder of that week. Please note that with the additional food items, these "grab and go" bags will be heavier and may be challenging for students on bikes to manage.


Our district has been working in close partnership with Washington County, the City of Sherwood, and the YMCA to identify alternative meal options for Sherwood students and families during the summer months. To help our partners plan for providing these meal alternatives, please complete the attached survey to indicate your need for meal access during the summer. This is an anonymous survey. Please watch for additional communication from the District with more information about summer meal options in the coming weeks.

Sherwood School District’s At-A-Glance Special Education Profile

You can view the Sherwood School District's At-A-Glance Special Education Profile by clicking on the link below. Under the requirements of the Individual with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) 2004, the Oregon Department of Education publishes an annual Special Education Report card as part of the State Performance Plan (SPP). The At-A-Glance Special Education Profile displays district-level data and approved Oregon state targets, as described in the SPP. If you have questions, please contact Karen Dalbey Special Programs Director at kdalbey@sherwood.k12.or.us.

State Testing Results

Each spring, students take the Smarter Balanced Assessment, Oregon Science Assessment, and English Language Proficiency Assessment based on their grade level and participation in the English Learner program. This year, most students did not take the assessments due to the COVID-19 extended school closure. If students completed one or more of these tests this year — as some schools administered some tests before March 13th — their score will be shared with families as in past years.
