Eddyville Charter School will be a community school and will offer a quality, comprehensive educational program for children and youth in grades kindergarten through 12th grade. It will also serve as the community center for a rural, isolated population of diverse individuals and families. This dual role of Eddyville Charter School, to be both a school and a focal point for the community, will continue a tradition that began 75 years ago. Eddyville has historically been self reliant and has shown resiliency during challenging times. The Oregon Public School Charter Law offers the opportunity for the Eddyville community to develop its unique educational program. This community is resolved to design and implement a program of high standards for all students, using innovative and flexible methods to meet these standards. 1) Mission and Objectives
The vision for Eddyville Charter School is to be a school where all students, including those who are underachievers or considered “high risk”, will experience success by meeting the defined academic and non-academic objectives. These objectives will include: · Meeting Oregon benchmarks at the various grade levels · Attaining the Lincoln County School District curriculum content standards · Completing requirements for the Certificate of Initial mastery · Demonstrating mastery of computer literacy/applications · Completing community service or Service Learning projects · Developing attitudes of politeness, respect and acceptance of various cultures, beliefs and diversities. · Demonstrating personal responsibility and caring, helpful behaviors · Transitioning successfully to college or employment, or both
Eddyville Charter School’s mission is to be a community school where all students will experience success by meeting high standards. All students are welcome, including those who are considered “high risk” and have not been successful before. Students will receive flexible and innovative instruction in a caring, small school atmosphere. Instruction will be skill based, not age or grade level based. Project Based Learning, community service projects and computer technology will be part of each student’s program. Students will be surrounded by caring staff and volunteers who want to participate in this kind of school. The staff will be well qualified both in academic content and instructional methodology. The target student population includes the children and youth who live in this rural area and who have traditionally succeeded in the small group setting. High risk students, come from out of the area, will be welcomed because Eddyville Charter School will help them thrive. Some students will come in order to participate in the outstanding educational programs offered which will be continued in the Charter. Home school children will be recruited. Eddyville Charter School has high expectations for student achievement outcomes. The student performance scores of Eddyville will meet or exceed the student performance scores reached by Lincoln County School District.
