Deputy’s Priorities
PK-20 Redesign PK-20 Redesign
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.

Common Core Common Core
The Common Core State Standards are rigorous learning expectations which will be assessed using a new test known as the Smarter Balanced Assessment. The goal of the Common Core is to help all students become college- and career-ready by the time they leave high school.
Full Day Kindergarten Full Day Kindergarten
A student’s early years are critical in laying a strong educational foundation for future success. A new Full Day Kindergarten webpage is coming soon - stay tuned.
High School Diploma 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.
