The meetings will be held on:

BSD Graduation Rates

The Beaverton School District 4-year on-time graduation rate for the Class of 2020 rose to an all-time high for most student groups. Student groups that have historically had lower graduation rates posted larger gains, thus narrowing the achievement gap. The graduation rate for Black students exceeded the rate for White students for the first time.


In 2019-20, BSD students in almost every student group graduated at a higher percentage than the state average in both 4- and 5-year graduation rates. The overall district-wide 4-year on-time graduation increased to 89.3% from 85.6%. The statewide rate increased to 82.6%. Please see the tables below:

Merlo School-based Health Center to Offer COVID-19 Testing

COVID-19 testing is now available for students (ages 12 - 18) at the Merlo Station School-Based Health Center (SBHC) on Tuesdays. Please note that these tests are meant for symptomatic students only. Students can make an appointment to get tested by calling the Merlo Station SBHC at 503-941-3210. They’ll be asked screening questions to ensure that they meet criteria for testing. Testing will be conducted outside in the parking lot, and students will be asked to remain in their cars, as they’re symptomatic. This is a rapid test, and students will have results within approximately 15 minutes.

CTE - Career Technical Education

CTE - Career Technical Education logo

CTE programs engage high school students in high-quality, rigorous and relevant classes, designed to help them turn their passions into paychecks and their dreams into careers. CTE programs partner with local businesses and industry to create opportunities that promote creativity, innovation and leadership, which are relevant to the job market of today.


We have created a series of videos, titled “Grads Talking Shop,” to highlight some of the 32 CTE programs across our six comprehensive high schools and one option high school. In this episode of "Grads Talking Shop," we explore the world of manufacturing through the eyes of America Rodriguez, alum of the BSD Manufacturing Program. This program is available to students from any of our comprehensive high schools and is housed at Westview High School. Transportation is provided.
