Oregon Department of Education

News Announcements

Schools and districts in Oregon are called upon to engage in continuous improvement work to improve outcomes for students. ODE has developed a planning model moving from goals to action plans through implementation. This session will describe plan development and will introduce Indistar®, a web-based tool adopted by Oregon to support planning and implementation. District and school Leadership Teams use this tool to record their planned implementation of indicators of evidence-based effective practice. Indistar® helps to chart and track the course toward improved outcomes. This is supported by clear expectations, a structured process, and access to resources and research for each of the indicators of effective practice. The resulting continuous improvement plan communicates to educators, students, their families, and the community the process of self-evaluation, thoughtful planning, implementation, and monitoring of the plan to elevate professional practice toward improved student outcomes.

District-level Resources and Research (R&R) Aligned to Indistar® Indicators

This Resources and Research (R & R) document is designed to provide districts a context for the indicator providing research syntheses, examples and references.
