The resources in the following group have been curated by ODE content specialists and Oregon educators to supplement materials that districts may use to meet the new requirements.

Materials in groups are free and openly-licensed, but have not been evaluated by ODE. As ODE develops criteria for ​Higher Education and Career Path Skills and Personal Financial Education instructional materials, resources will be evaluated for quality and added to a collection. ​

ODE will be hosting three informational webinars for district and public charter school leaders. 

Webinars will be recorded and shared on this webpage.
