Assessment & Accountability Update Summer Schedule

Throughout the summer and until the 2012-13 OAKS Online test window opens on November 6, the Assessment & Accountability Update will be published every other week according to the following schedule.
  • October 4 & 18
  • November 1

Any special or urgent communications between issues will be sent through the DTC or AYP/RC Listservs, or as general news announcements. On Thursday, November 8, weekly issues will resume, starting with a special Back to School issue with important information about the 2012-2013 school year.

While many of us will continue working through the summer to provide our students a fresh start in the Fall, we wish a safe, fun, productive summer break for Oregon’s educators and students.
