Key Dates for Accountability and Reporting

News

​The Oregon Department of Education (ODE) is seeking applicants to fill three vacancies on the Accountability Reporting Advisory Committee (ARAC). The ARAC is a committee defined in rule (i.e., OAR 581-002-0090) and provides guidance and recommendations to ODE concerning accountability policies, procedures, and methodologies as well as school and district appeals of accountability data that appear on the At-A-Glance School and District Profiles and Accountability Detail Sheets. The committee consists of individuals from educational institutions representing communities across the state of Oregon.

The ARAC meets quarterly with three virtual meetings and one in-person meeting; however, the ODE occasionally schedules additional meetings when necessary. The length of the virtual meetings is 2 to 4 hours, while the in-person meetings are typically 6 to 8 hours and occur in Salem in August (travel reimbursement is available).

Interested applicants should have knowledge and experience in one or more of the following areas:

  • School and district accountability
  • Public data reporting for a non-technical audience
  • Data collection and validation
  • Interpreting assessment or other accountability data
  • Research, analysis, and program evaluation

The ODE has a strong commitment to equity and cultural diversity; thus, we encourage individuals with diverse cultural perspectives and experiences to apply. Interested applicants will need to complete a brief online questionnaire.

If interested, please complete the online questionnaire by Thursday February 29, 2024.

If you have any questions or issues completing the online application, please contact Elyse Bean, Research Analyst.
