Cross-agency coordination

Projects and Initiatives

With its unique vantage point across the learning continuum, the Chief Education Office brings strategic leadership from the perspective of a student. One of its roles is to convene state agencies and stakeholders who impact student success to build greater coordination and alignment across the seamless system of education. Below are cross-sector projects and initiatives that the Chief Education Office is leading.

Accelerated Learning

Students who take college credit in high school are more likely to graduate from high school and enroll and persist in college, academic research and state data shows. Oregon offers a variety of options, known as accelerated learning programs, to give students this opportunity; however, issues persist in Oregon around credit transferability, equitable access around the state, qualified instructors, and adequate support for students and their families. To address these challenges, the Chief Education Office convened a Sustainable Solutions for Accelerated Learning (SSAL) Work Group, which has developed recommendations to the Governor and Legislature.

Trauma-informed Pilot Project

The Chief Education Office is working with the Oregon Department of Education (ODE) and Oregon Health Authority (OHA) on a pilot project to identify replicable elements of a high school-based trauma informed approach to education, mental health, and intervention strategies.
