Regional Educator Networks




The Educator Advancement Council (EAC) was created as a public-nonprofit partnership through state statute to significantly improve professional supports for Oregon's public educators. The system is designed to lead changes from the inside out, engaging frontline educators in collaboration with community resources to build upon the successes of the past and adapt support to meet the needs of today's education workforce and students.

System Organization

This system is organized by ten Regional Educator Networks (REN)/Sponsoring Organizations with an emphasis on local context to ensure training and support are responsive to the local strengths and needs of educators and students of their region. The identified regions include:
