Oregon has committed to the goal of 40-40-20 – By the year 2025, 40% of Oregonians will have at least a bachelor’s degree, 40% will have completed career training, and 20% will have at least a high school diploma. In order to reach that goal, we are working with the Oregon Education Investment Board on ways to redesign the education system from birth to higher education to better support students, families, schools, and communities.
The Common Core State Standards are rigorous national standards which will be assessed using a national test known as the
Smarter Balanced Assessmen
t. The goal of the Common Core is to help all students become college- and career-ready by the time they leave high school.
Ready for School
A student’s early years are critical in laying a strong educational foundation for future success. Learn more about the Ready for School Initiative and Full Day Kindergarten.
High School Diploma
The Oregon Diploma has been redesigned to better prepare every student for success in college, work, and citizenship. To earn a diploma, students will need to successfully complete credit requirements, demonstrate proficiency in the Essential Skills, and meet personalized learning requirements.
Closing the Achievement Gap
For the past eight years, we have showcased schools from around the state for their outstanding work in reducing achievement gaps. Profiles and videos highlight best practices around Closing the Achievement Gap in Oregon.
