Oregon Teaching and Standards Commission (TSPC)  is Excited to Announce the New Oregon Educators Data Dashboard and Jobs Portal (

Dear Partners and Educators,

Educators searching for a job may access the dashboard as a one-stop marketplace to search for that educator position.   Just click on the link to see the opportunities and actually apply for the job.

Today, TSPC launched a new Oregon Educators Data Dashboard and Jobs Portal (, which is now live and ready for use.

This interactive dashboard offers:

  • An opportunity for job seekers to get comprehensive access to all K-12 jobs available in Oregon. It can be a single centralized job portal connecting potential employees with positions.
  • A detailed overview of all Oregon districts, ESDs, and charter schools staff displaying searchable data on educators and classified employees across the state.
  • Daily updates from district HR systems accurately reflect the current staffing situation in Oregon to the extent possible.

Future updates will include smaller districts and charter schools without electronic HR systems and a few larger districts, such as Portland, Bend-La Pine, and Eugene. 

House Bill 4030 directed the creation of the dashboard. If you have any questions about the dashboard, please contact Dr. Wayne Strickland, Director of Educator Preparation, or Ms. Richelle Krotts, Educator Preparation Liaison,
