Oregon's Integrated Systems (ORIS)

ODE has developed a high-level needs assessment of evidence-based practices to drive the development of district and school improvement initiatives. Oregon’s Integrated Systems (ORIS) Framework provides education leaders a tool to review the health and effectiveness of various systems within the school district and school. By aligning a robust review of state and local data with a deep dive into the ORIS Domains, continuous improvement plans can be enhanced to truly improve outcomes for students and provides a streamlined process for aligning resources and investments.

A key facet of the continuous improvement process is monitoring the implementation of the strategies and approaches selected and making necessary adjustments to ensure these activities are making a difference in improving outcomes for Oregon’s learners.

Oregon Mentoring Program
The Oregon Beginning Teacher and Administrator Mentorship Program was established in 2007 through the passage of HB 2574. In 2015 the Oregon Legislature continued funding for the Oregon Mentorship Program through The Network for Quality Teaching and Learning (HB 3233). The grant program is designed to support evidence-based mentorship programs for beginning teachers and administrators.
Oregon's AP/IB Programs Test Fee Program
The Oregon Advanced Placement Programs help students, in low-income situations, participate in rigorous academic coursework that will increase their opportunities and get a head start into college. These programs are important tools for closing Oregon's achievement gap.
Post Graduate Scholar Programs
The Post Graduate Scholar Program is a safety net for high school students who have earned a high school diploma, earned below a 2.5 GPA (thus not eligible for Oregon Promise), and are ineligible for the PELL Grant or the grant does not cover one year of college tuition and fees.
Oregon Charter School Program
The Oregon Department of Education received an $8.79 million federal grant to increase the quality of public charter schools in our state between 2015-2018. This grant is designed to support newer public charter schools in Oregon and disseminate best practices from effective charter schools to the rest of the public education system. Funds will be used to support training and professional development for all subgrantees in culturally responsive education practices, reduce systemic educational inequities, and promote collaboration and partnership with non-charter public schools.

Technical Assistance Program (TAP)
The Technical Assistance Program (TAP) helps districts plan for capital improvements and expansion so they can better inform their communities about deferred maintenance needs, future enrollment and explore sources of funding for school facilities. TAP provides four types of grants to school districts to cover or offset the costs of conducting: 1) Facility Condition Assessments; 2) Long-Range Facility Planning; 3) Seismic Assessments, and; 4) Environmental Hazard Assessments.
Oregon School Capital Improvement Matching Program (OSCIM)
The Oregon School Capital Improvement Matching Program (OSCIM) provides matching grants to districts that pass a local general obligation bond. The goal of the program is to encourage local communities to invest in their district's public schools. Commitments are made to districts ahead of the election so districts can inform their communities of the potential for additional funds from the state if the local bond passes. The matching grants are up to $4 million for most districts and some districts may receive up to $8 million in matching grants.
