Standards for Professional Practice
The state adopted Model Core Teaching Standards and Educational Leadership/Administrator Standards define what teachers and administrators should know and be able to do to ensure that every student is ready for college, careers and engaged citizenship in today’s world. Districts are required to build their evaluation and support systems using these adopted standards.
The state has identified what constitutes both an effective teacher and an effective leader in the state ratified SB 290 and the adopted Educator Effectiveness Framework. The Oregon Model Core Teaching Standards (InTASC) articulate teacher performances, essential knowledge, and critical dispositions for each of the 10 standards.
The Oregon Leadership/Administrator standards (based on ISLLC/ELCC) articulate administrator performance expectations for each of the 6 standards. Essential knowledge and critical dispositions associated with each standard can be found in the CCSSO/ISLLC standards companion guide, Performance Expectations and Indicators for Education Leaders.
Both the Model Core Teaching Standards and Educational Leadership standards build on national standards, are research based, utilize best practices, and were developed with a wide variety of stakeholders over the course of several years. Districts are required to build their evaluation and support systems using these adopted standards.
Oregon Model Core Teaching Standards
The Model Core Teaching Standards outline what all teachers across all content and grade levels should know and be able to do to be effective in today's learning contexts. They were adopted by the Oregon State Board of Education December 2011.
Oregon Educational Leadership/Administrator Standards
These standards guide administrative preparation, licensure and job performance. Oregon’s educational leadership/administrator standards align with the Interstate School Leaders Licensure Consortium (ISLLC) and the Educational Leadership Constituents Council (ELCC) 2009 standards for Educational Leadership.
InTASC Model Core Teaching Standards
The Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO), through its Interstate Teacher Assessment and Support Consortium (InTASC), created this set of model core teaching standards that outline what teachers should know and be able to do to ensure every K-12 student is ready to enter college or the workforce.
Educational Leadership Policy Standards 2008 (ISLLC)
The educational leadership-administrator standards are the same standards adopted by the Teacher Standards and Practices Commission (TSPC) for administrator licensure. These standards are aligned with the Interstate School Leaders Licensure Consortium (ISLLC).
