Oregon law grants districts the authority to develop their own curricula, provided that it is based on the academic content standards.
Successful transitions for Oregon students depend upon an integrated and connected learning system of middle and high schools, community colleges, universities and the workforce.
Educational rights and responsibilities are defined by federal law, Oregon Revised Statutes (ORS), and by Oregon Administrative Rules (OAR).
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.
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.
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.
