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.
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.
