Community members invited to discuss education, from Pre-K through college and career readiness
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. A session in Pendleton will be held on Jan. 30 at Blue Mountain Community College.
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. A session in Pendleton will take place on Jan. 30:
Monday, Blue Mountain Community College

The Oregon Education Investment Board is proposing legislative action in February 2012 to streamline early childhood programs and create a system of accountability for student success from pre-kindergarten through K-12 to college and career readiness. Those are the recommendation of Oregon Learns, a report delivered Dec. 15 to the Oregon Legislature by the board.
