Oregon Education Investment Board to hold meeting at Rock Creek

Photos and Story by

The Oregon Education Investment Board will hold a community meeting at the Rock Creek Campus from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., Tuesday, Jan. 31. The meeting, part of a statewide tour, will discuss the next steps to improve student success in Oregon’s public education system, from prekindergarten through to college and career readiness. This meeting was cancelled earlier this month due to the snow storm.

After a brief presentation on the Oregon Education Investment Board’s proposals, most of the time is reserved for participants to discuss and share their thoughts. Free parking is available in the Event Center lot west of Building 9. PCC’s students, faculty and staff are invited to participate and share their ideas to support student learning and thoughts on the achievement compacts at the core of the state’s No Child Left Behind waiver application.

The Oregon Education Investment Board is proposing legislative action in February to streamline early childhood programs and create a system of accountability for student success from pre-kindergarten through K-12 to college and career readiness. Those are the recommendation of Oregon Learns, a report delivered Dec. 15 to the Oregon Legislature by the board.
