The Educator Advancement Council is an innovative partnership aimed at helping Oregon achieve high-quality, well-supported and culturally-responsive public educators in every classroom.  


Building upon the Governor’s Council on Educator Advancement recommendations, the Oregon Legislature created the Council through the passage of Senate Bill 182. The Council expands Oregon’s efforts to further support educators statewide including, but not limited to:


  • Establishing a system of local educator networks that prioritize and enhance educators’ access to professional learning and support services, combining state investment and other leveraged resources driven by educator need.
  • Supporting the Oregon Teacher Scholars Program to help achieve purposes of the Educator’s Equity Act, including scholarships, mentoring, networking and other resources for racially or linguistically diverse teaching candidates.
  • Better aligning early learning professional development efforts with K-12.
  • Researching and addressing issues related to educator workforce supply and demand.
  • Beginning in Fall 2019, the EAC distributed funds to Regional Educator Networks (RENs) across the state who facilitate content, process, and infrastructure support to school districts. The system is not organized around a solution, program, or an initiative, but rather around improving systems of support for educators along the educator advancement continuum.
  • Beginning in 2020, the EAC distributed funds from the Student Success Act (HB 3427) to support early learning and K-12 educator professional learning and educator preparation program support. This funding will help develop and expand programs to better serve and support students of color, students with disabilities, emerging bilingual students, and students navigating poverty, houselessness, and foster care.
