What it does: The bill would require every post-secondary institution in Oregon to provide data about students attending that institution, specifically the number of Oregon high school graduates from each Oregon school district enrolled at that institution and the graduation rates of Oregon high school students from that institution, by school district.
What’s new: The Senate Education Committee heard HB 2147 on Tuesday. Rep. Mark Johnson (R-Hood River), Hood River School Board member and chief sponsor of the bill, advocated for the measure. OSBA supported his testimony and the bill. The committee voted to adopt a friendly set of amendments and to move the measure to the Senate floor with a “do pass” recommendation.
What’s next: The Senate has scheduled a third reading for Monday.
