“When schools, families and community groups work together to support learning children tend to do better in school, stay in school longer, and like school more.”
A New Wave of Evidence: The Impact of School, Family and Community Connections on Student Achievement
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.
Working as partners with schools, families and community members can help improve student performance and make schools stronger.
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 Rules
Educational rights and responsibilities are defined by federal law, Oregon Revised Statutes (ORS), and by Oregon Administrative Rules (OAR).
Meeting My Student's 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.
Schools and Districts
Federal law requires all schools and districts to report the progress being made in classrooms. By providing a broad range of educational and learning environments the individual needs and interests of all of Oregon’s students can be met.
State Standards and Tests
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.
Children with Disabilities
As a parent/guardian of a child with a disability, you may require additional information about your rights, the assessment and IEP process, available services and programs, and accommodations during statewide assessment.
