SALEM, Ore. (AP) -- A report from the Secretary of State found that Oregon hasn't followed up on recommendations to better track the progress of the state's most at-risk students.

The report, released Wednesday, said the Oregon Department of Education only made partial progress on three of the 15 recommendations to improve education for students in online or alternative schools. It made no progress on the remaining 12.

The department agreed to implement all 15 recommendations by summer of 2019. The recommendations came from a 2017 audit, which found little oversight over the performance of Oregon's alternative and online schools. Nearly half of the state's high school dropouts attend these schools.

The Department of Education said staffing challenges and federal requirements were behind the delay.

Acting Secretary of State Leslie Cummings called the department's lack of progress "disappointing."
