How good is your imagination? Ready to put it to work on behalf of a classroom (or lots of them) near you?

As Oregonians prepare for the new federal Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), education leaders across the state are asking for input on what citizens want from their schools. Specifically, Salam Noor, the state’s deputy superintendent of public instruction, is inviting Oregonians to reimagine education in our state.

This effort includes a series of community meetings to give a forum to parents, students, teachers and others who are interested in learning more about the ESSA. The federal law replaces No Child Left Behind, and allows Oregon to create a State Plan with increased flexibility in assessment, accountability, school improvement and educator effectiveness.

It's a series of community forums designed to get all of us talking about how we support student success in Oregon. Participants will be providing ideas and will get the opportunity to ask questions about the ESSA.

As of yet, there are no forums scheduled for Douglas County. But meetings are still being planned, and schedules are posted at http://www.ode.state.or.us/go/ESSA. Check back to see where gatherings will be held in coming weeks. 

Add your ideas to the mix as we all help shape the state of education in Oregon!
