"I love the symbolism of this pathway between Oregon City High school and the college and the way it represents the partnership we have together," said Larry Didway, Superintendent. "Our students benefit greatly from our connection with the college and this pathway enforces our bond and the work we do together for student success."

Ms. Beck is returning to Oregon City School District from The Dalles Middle School where she served as vice principal. She is a former Gardiner Middle School teacher. Ms. Beck is an experienced educator with teaching credentials for mathematics, science and elementary education in Oregon and Washington. Ms. Beck completed her bachelor's degree in elementary education and a master's degree in curriculum development and instruction from Eastern Washington University. She also completed the educational leadership and administration license program at University of Oregon. Her skills and enthusiasm will be a great match for the Redland Elementary School community.
Last week, the faculty got concrete affirmation that the amped-up care and attention they shower on students is paying off: Oregon City's on-time graduation rate rose by 5 percentage points to reach 94 percent, including 91 percent among low-income students.
