Dear Hood River County School District Students and Families,

Welcome to a new school year! It really is our privilege to partner with you in the intellectual, social and healthy development of your children. Education is indeed a partnership: together can we make certain that your children get the most out of the excellent educational experiences planned for the upcoming school year and that they are prepared for the world awaiting them after high school graduation. Thank you for putting your trust in the Hood River County School District and allowing us to be your partner in your child’s academic journey.

Since the adoption of our strategic plan in 2014, we have been highly focused on achieving one powerful, overarching goal: Every student graduates with the knowledge and courage to learn, serve, and pursue their dreams. We are making steady progress towards this lofty goal and the full implementation of the high-leverage, research-based strategies outlined in the enclosed “20/20 Vision.”  Please take some time to read through this comprehensive plan and visit our webpage at to review our progress. I know you’ll be excited about our commitment to continuous improvement, the opportunities for your involvement, and our focus on your child’s success.
