5 Oregon Frequency of Occurrence The number of students reported with ED has been increasing slightly. More than one third of youth with ED have additional disabilities. More youth with ED participate in Free & Reduced Lunch than any other Disability group (68%). Data source: The Oregon SpEd Multi-Year Database (MYDB) was used to generate through data charts, Ages 5-21

6 Oregon Assessment Almost 30% of ED students met or exceeded the standards on their most recent statewide math assessment. Almost 40% of ED students met or exceeded the standards on their most recent statewide reading assessment. Data source: The Oregon MYDB was used to generate through data grades 4-12

7 Oregon Discipline — Stability More than 25% of ED students experienced Out of School Suspension the previous school year ED students are the most likely to move from district to district. Almost 15% of the ED students were not in the same district the previous school year Data source: The Oregon MYDB was used to generate discipline and stability data, grades 4-12

For those ED students still in school in 12 th grade, many will stay an additional year. Data source: The Oregon MYDB was used to generate report on students reported in 12 th grade in

9 Oregon Graduation—Dropout Graduation Rate (ESEA) = ED 50% (All 72%) Drop Out Rate (ESEA) = ED 9% (All 5%) Students finishing school by leaving with alternate diplomas or aging out are not included, only those graduating with a regular diploma and dropping out are shown Oregon will be reporting graduation using the cohort method in the future, requiring the student to finish in 4 years. Data source: The General Education High School Completer and Early Leaver (ESEA) data collections were used for the Graduation and Drop Out Rates in
