Superintendent's Update (Feb. 3, 2021)

Brookings-Harbor School District Families,
 
I am happy to report that Curry County is now solidly in the “green zone” regarding county risk metrics and school metrics and has remained there for two weeks, according to data from the Oregon Health Authority. These metrics are advisory for school re-opening, and Curry is now in the lowest risk category of the ODE advisory metrics with 9 active cases recorded between Jan. 17-30, and a 2.3% positivity rate of those taking COVID tests countywide. 
 
We began bringing our face-to-face students back to campus grade-level by grade-level starting Jan. 4th, with all grades back in as of Jan. 14th. The second half of the school year commenced  Monday, Jan. 25, with the start of second semester classes for our middle and high school students.
 
Additionally, in partnership with Curry County Public Health and Curry Medical Network we have completed a first round of preventative vaccinations for our teachers and staff.
 
We must all continue to work together to maintain what we have worked hard to achieve in reopening our schools —  we are one of the few districts in the state to have all grade levels participating in hybrid on-site learning. 
 
Our diligence is key as we look with hope toward opportunities on the horizon for athletics and activities, end-of-year celebrations, award ceremonies and more. Please encourage your student to continue to observe all Ready Schools, Safe Learners guidelines on our campuses, including proper mask wearing, physical distancing, and staying home if you do not feel well!

About Us

  • 108 graduates in Class of 2018 Our district has increased the graduation rate from the 60th percentile to more than 80th percentile in recent years, above the state average. We work to keep our students on track to graduate at all grades levels and have intervention programs to help students who fall behind.
  • 3 types of professional certificates offered BHHS students can earn an Allied Health Certificate in partnership with SWOCC, CompTIA Professional Information Technology certificates, and numerous Graphic and Digital Media Art professional software certificates. We've also re-added numerous CTE courses, such as welding and construction trades in recent years to provide more "hands-on" vocational training opportunities.
  • 1,717 dual credits earned in 2017-18 Last year, 184 of our students completed college credits through high school classes. Southern Oregon University (SOU), Oregon Institute of Technology (OIT) and South Western Oregon Community College (SOCC) to provide these dual credit opportunities.
  • $4.5 Million in Seismic Safety Upgrades Our district earned three $1.5 million in grants from Business Oregon to retrofit the elementary, middle and high school for safety in the event of a major earthquake.
