  • November 1

Any special or urgent communications between issues will be sent through the DTC or AYP/RC Listservs, or as general news announcements. On Thursday, November 8, weekly issues will resume, starting with a special Back to School issue with important information about the 2012-2013 school year.

While many of us will continue working through the summer to provide our students a fresh start in the Fall, we wish a safe, fun, productive summer break for Oregon’s educators and students.
