Local Assessment Capacity Building Grant Awardees

As a part of Oregon's Strategic Initiatives, specifically House Bill 3233, the Oregon Department of Education is contracting four district partners to focus on developing local assessment capacity statewide so that Oregon educators can develop, administer, and score high-quality assessments.

The review committee has selected the following four districts that most closely fit the specifications of the project to receive contracts:

Astoria PDF

La Grande PDF

Tigard-Tualatin PDF

South Lane PDF

These districts will serve as regional ambassadors for local assessment building and will be available to support districts throughout the state by acting as points of contact for this project, sharing assessment resources, and presenting materials at conferences. Additionally, the content developed over the course of this project will be available to all districts to implement and incorporate as best practice for their educators.

If you have additional questions about this grant, please contact Cristen McLean, Assessment Policy Analyst, at cristen.mclean@ode.state.or.us eMail.
