Report: Morrow County Students Had 92% Graduation Rate in 2020


The Morrow County School District (MCSD) had a 92 percent graduation rate for the class of 2020 – 9 percent higher than the state average.

That stat comes courtesy of the school report card released by the Oregon Department of Education.

Superintendent Dirk Dirksen said that one of the things the district continually focuses on is providing services specific to student needs; this work is reflected in the graduation rates for historically underserved populations, which are at or above the district and state averages.

The district regular attendance data, while not comparable to past years due to changes in reporting rules, does provide some information for buildings.

“Looking at our regular attender rates as compared to similar districts, we cannot overemphasize the importance of our efforts in opening our schools to in-person learning early in the 2020-21 school year,” said Dirksen.
