Annual report cards for Oregon schools and districts are out Thursday.

But it’s the second year in a row that you won’t find a key piece of information you might be expecting: an overall rating for your school.

Schools used to get a rating from one to five. But last year, Oregon got federal permission to drop those ratings, as the state shifted to Smarter Balanced exams. And this year Oregon is starting an overhaul of the report card in light of a new federal education law.  

You can find out how many elementary school students regularly show up to school, how many graduating seniors are going to college, how many 9th graders are earning enough credits to be on track to graduate on time, and how kids are doing on state tests.

There is some new information added, too.

You can find out if local kids are getting vaccinated. Most Oregon schools have immunization rates of at least 95 percent. But not everywhere.    

Two-thirds of students at the Village School in Eugene and nearly half the students at Portland’s Southwest Charter School were missing shots.
