You are Invited: Statewide Town Halls on Education
Beginning March 31st, our partner agency, the Oregon Department of Education will be hosting one of eleven community forums across the state to Reimagine Education in Oregon.
The conversations are designed to help the State receive community input to develop a framework for a State Plan required by the Every Child Succeeds Act (ESSA). ESSA was passed by Congress earlier this year and replaces No Child Left Behind (NCLB). The legislation affords states greater flexibility to locally define improvement, accountability, and assessment systems for K-12 schools.
As they begin to craft a plan, the Department wants to hear from students, families, educators and community leaders about what they value most within a system of education.
