Sign up here to receive announcements!

In 2015, the Oregon Legislature enacted House Bill 2016, which directed the Oregon Department of Education (ODE) to develop and implement a statewide education plan for African American/Black students who are in early childhood through post-secondary education programs, and convene an advisory group to advise the Department on the creation and implementation of the plan. Implementation of the plan includes awarding grants to early learning hubs, providers of early learning services, school districts, post-secondary institutions of education, and community-based organizations.
