The new Common Core State Standards call for profound changes in teaching and learning, and the 2014-15 school year is a pivotal one in the transition, with the first administration of new standards-aligned assessments. This workshop will help board members develop strategies for managing the change in a way that focuses on positive, lasting impacts in classrooms, not superficial compliance with mandates.

"Oregon Opportunity Initiative"

Ted Wheeler, Oregon State Treasurer

To compete on the world stage, Oregon needs the best and brightest workforce.  Yet skyrocketing costs are reducing the access to critical higher education degrees and vocational training programs that will allow Oregonians to thrive in the jobs of tomorrow.  The Opportunity Initiative will help reverse Oregon's disinvestment in higher education and create a permanent, dedicated fund to help make higher education and job training more accessible.

In the session you will hear about these foci, what we will be doing for each and how we will align our work with other stakeholders to reach the goal. We will also share other major work of the OEIB including our accountability framework and initial thoughts about budget and strategic investments.
