Senate Bill 182 (2017) creates the Educator Advancement Council to provide a systematic and equitable approach to supporting the educators who guide students in Oregon classrooms every day. The council will develop local educator networks that will prioritize needs for educator professional development and support and distribute funding in an equitable manner.
The Chief Education Office will coordinate across education agencies to provide support and accountability to this new council, connect educator networks, and coordinate and conduct research on teaching and learning conditions, educator workforce supply and demand, and common measures for accountability
In January 2018, the Chief Education Office submitted a report to the Legislature that updates the work under way to implement SB 182. To read the report, click here. The Office will be providing more information about the new council through its website in the coming weeks.
