  1. Increasing the depth of work started in 2006 with the Effective Behavioral and Instructional Support Systems (EBISS) state initiative. Districts and programs involved in the 2006-2011 EBISS initiative will have opportunities to focus on specific improvement areas using Implementation Science principles.
  2. Increasing the breadth of work by providing all Oregon school districts the opportunity to take advantage of the principles of Implementation Science for school improvement endeavors.
  3. Increasing the scope of impact on Oregon educators by recruiting and funding Speech and Language Pathologists, in partnership with school districts across the state, through "Grow Your Own" programs. For more information please click here: Scholarships for Speech Language Pathology
  4. Ensuring that evidence-based activities and initiatives supported by the Office of Student Learning and Partnerships are aligned with the Common Core State Standards.
 
 
The 2006-2011 SPDG funding supported a variety of activities and programs that continue to positively impact student outcomes across the state. These activities include:
  1. The award of 94 licensure or certification scholarships to individuals in three special education service provider professions.
