Redmond School District Meets New Standards

After Oregon implemented new state standards in 2010, Redmond School District’s scores on the statewide mathematics assessments fell. In 2015, Linda Seeberg, Redmond’s executive director of academic programs, and Dr. Chris Morton, the district’s director of school improvement, led an effort to vet and implement a modern core math program that would better prepare students for the rigorous new standards and assessments.


“Mostly, we hope [students] feel excited about exploring things they don’t understand and realize they have the tools to do so. It’s really about the exploration and discovery of numbers and one’s relationships with other learners. That’s the broader context of math in real life.” Linda Seeberg, Executive Director of Academic Programs
