Oregon Priority and Focus Schools School Support Team Pilot Update
Continuous improvement, whether at the school or district level, is an ongoing, systemic, cyclical process. In this cycle, the results of previous efforts are examined in order to determine where to focus new efforts.
As with any system undergoing change, staff benefit from examples, supported by research, of what work in particular circumstances. Staff also benefit from resources to help them examine, based both on observation and on data, current practices in determining next steps.
It is a policy of the State Board of Education and a priority of the Oregon Department of Education that there will be no discrimination or harassment on the grounds of race, color, sex, marital status, religion, national origin, age, sexual orientation, or disability in any educational programs, activities or employment. Persons having questions about equal opportunity and nondiscrimination should contact the Deputy Superintendent of Public Instruction at the Oregon Department of Education, 255 Capitol Street NE, Salem, Oregon 97310; phone 503-947-5740; or fax 503-378-4772.

System Performance Review & Improvement (SPRI)
This system is a continuous improvement monitoring process that focuses on improving student outcomes. SPR&I is a district/program driven system founded on data-informed decision-making. It supports improvement planning through performance data collection and interpretation, development and implementation improvement plan, and evaluation of impact and effectiveness of improvement strategies.
School Improvement Fund (SIF) Grants
The School Improvement Fund (SIF) is established by the state to support areas directly related to increasing student achievement. School districts, education service districts, and eligible programs have flexibility within the grant guidelines to determine specific evidenced-based areas that will lead to school improvement.
Oregon Small Schools Initiative
E3 is a statewide non-profit organization, founded by the Oregon Business Council, to bring together employers and schools to improve student achievement. E3 is providing leadership and technical assistance to existing large high schools and to new "start-up" schools -- creating innovative models that accelerate achievement for all students.
