“A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops.”
Henry B. Adams
The Oregon Department of Education is committed to ensuring that every Oregon public school student has equal access to high quality educational services that prepare them for their next steps following high school graduation—college, work, citizenship—and enables today’s students to be life-long learners.
Curriculum and Instruction
Oregon law grants districts the authority to develop their own curricula, provided that it is based on the academic content standards.
Data and School Improvement
School improvement is an ongoing process in which the results of previous efforts are examined in order to determine where to focus new efforts.
High School and Beyond
Successful transitions for Oregon students depend upon an integrated and connected learning system of middle and high schools, community colleges, universities and the workforce.
Laws and Licensure
Educational rights and responsibilities are defined by federal law, Oregon Revised Statutes (ORS), and by Oregon Administrative Rules (OAR).
Meeting All Students' Needs
To assure that all students have the opportunity to reach their potential, every effort must be made to meet these unique needs and foster individual interests.
Opportunities and Professional Development
The purpose of all teacher professional development is to help teachers develop and apply the knowledge and skills necessary to help students learn.
Standards and Assessments
Oregon’s content standards define what all students should know and be able to do. Statewide assessments administered at different grades are designed to show a student’s progress toward meeting those standards.
Content Area Teacher Newsletters
Content area newsletters are designed to provide teachers and other educators with information about opportunities and events of interest by content area.
