Educator Specific

​Every two years, Oregon conducts a survey that provides an opportunity for teachers and administrators to share perceptions about teaching and learning conditions at Oregon’s public schools. The Teaching, Empowering, Leading and Learning (TELL) Survey examines perceptions in 8 categories linked to teacher retention and student achievement. A record number of educators – 19,556 – took the 2018 Oregon TELL Survey. 

The New Teacher Center administered the survey in 2014, 2016, and 2018, but will no longer administer the survey in future years. Oregon is working with a new survey vendor and will release details during 2019.

The former TeachInOregon website was developed in partnership between the state of Oregon and education organizations to help those aspiring to become an Oregon teacher more easily navigate the journey. It is being updated and expected to relaunch soon. In the interim, please refer to these resource documents and feel free to reach out to EAC staff with questions.​

Grow-Your-Own/Teacher Partnership Pathway Grant:

On March 2, 2021, ODE and the EAC announced the 2020-2021 recipients of the Grow Your Own (GYO)/Teacher Pathways grant, which supports regional and local partnerships to diversify the teacher workforce, implement Oregon’s culturally responsive legislative initiatives, and mitigate and/or eliminate barriers to provide more equitable pathways in education for African American, Black, American Indian, Alaska Native, Asian, Indigenous, Latinx, Native Hawaiian, Pacific Islander, and Multi-racial teachers. 

The EAC received 27 grant applications, from 9 emerging and 18 existing programs, and all 27 grants have been awarded for a total amount of $6.8 million. The grants will support partnerships between the awardees and local school districts, education service districts, community colleges, universities, and community organizations. Grow Your Own programs help to develop and diversify the teaching workforce within local communities, which will reduce the demographic gap between students and teachers in Oregon. Grow Your Own programs create the conditions for community members to become teachers within their local regions and engender collaborative partnerships between educator preparation programs, early learning, and K-12 systems.

Information on 2021 GYO grantee partnerships is available here.
