African American/Black Student Success Advisory Group

House Bill 2016 directs the Department of Education to develop and implement a statewide education plan for African American/Black students who are in early childhood through post-secondary education programs. The Department has convened an advisory group comprised of members of the African American/Black community and other community partners from across the state of Oregon to advise the Department on the creation and implementation of the plan.

The plan addresses:

  • the disparities experienced by African American and Black students in every indicator of academic success.
  • the historical practices leading to disproportionate outcomes for the students.
  • the educational needs of the students from early childhood through post-secondary education by examining culturally responsive and appropriate best practices in this state and across the nation.

The Advisory Group is accepting public testimony. However, due to COVID-19 public testimony must be submitted in written form to Erin Rothweiler by 5:00p.m. the Monday before the meeting.
