Federal Program Learning Opportunities

ODE - ESSA Federal Program Regional Training 2017

The Oregon Department of Education (ODE) invites you to attend the ODE – ESSA Federal Programs Regional Trainings for 2017. These regional trainings will be held at ten ESD locations, combining ESD regions, with one ESD hosting their own and neighboring districts. We are not able to travel to every ESD region but hope that by being available in regions spread out across the state we can minimize travel time and costs for most districts.

A team of ODE staff leading federal programs will facilitate work sessions for district teams to learn about the requirements of federal programs and changes under ESSA, with a focus on Title IA and Title III. The session will cover how federal funds can work in a coordinated way to meet identified student needs and support activities that improve outcomes for all students. The session will provide opportunities for networking across districts and consultations with ODE staff. 

A presentation will be conducted in the morning (Title I-A typically on the first day and Title III on the second day) followed by individual district sessions in the afternoon of both days.

The schedule on each day will typically be:

  • 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM Presentation/Interactive Session
  • 12:00 - 1:00 PM Lunch (On your own)
  • 1:00 - 5:00 PM Individual District Consultations

Items to bring:

  • Laptop
  • Relevant district materials

Who should attend?  

  • District administrators
  • Federal programs coordinators
  • English Learner coordinators
  • Business directors.
