Community Members Invited to Discuss Education, from Pre-Kindergarten Through College and Career Readiness
Meetings slated for seven Oregon cities January 17 to 30
(Salem, OR) - The Oregon Education Investment Board will hold seven community meetings across the state later this month, to discuss next steps to improve student success in Oregon's public education system, from prekindergarten through to college and career readiness.

Thousands of individuals have already participated in surveys, offered ideas in public testimony and met with representatives of the Governor's Office around the state. Now local students, educators, parents and community members are invited to the meetings, to share their ideas to support student learning and thoughts on the achievement compacts at the core of the state's No Child Left Behind waiver application.


Each of the seven meetings will run from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. After a brief presentation on the Oregon Education Investment Board's proposals, most of the time is reserved for participants to discuss and share their thoughts.

Those are the recommendation of Oregon Learns, a report delivered Dec. 15 to the Oregon Legislature by the board.
