A report about the Fall 2022 Pilot as well as ODE and the Department of Early Learning and Care (DELC)’s response can be found at the Early Learning Transition Check -In: A Collaborative Engagement with Community website.
In addition, the training process has begun with school districts across Oregon who have volunteered to join the Fall 2023 Pilot: Family Conversation.
Upon pilot completion, families and educators will be asked to join community conversations with an independent contractor. The purposes of these conversations are:
to hear about people’s experiences with the family component
to hear about ideas people have for future family components
to understand how families and educators think the process might work better for families and schools in coming years
Another report will be published with recommendations that will influence the direction of the Family Conversation.
School districts who do not volunteer for the Fall 2023 pilot should not administer any components of the previous kindergarten assessment. Please read Assessment and Accountability Updates for future opportunities to be involved in this process.
Broader community engagements will take place during the 2023-24 school year. Please email PreKCheckin@ode.oregon.gov with any questions you may have about this topic.
