Title Next Steps: Oregon's Plan to Improve Personnel Development
by Scaling for Content, Depth and Breadth
Beginning Date 10/1/2011
Ending Date 9/30/2016
This project will use previous work in developing implementation knowledge to expand the state's personnel development and improvement activities into a cohesive and responsive system that touches four areas simultaneously: infrastructure, depth, breadth, and licensure. Specifically, scaling principles will be applied to deepen the successful provision of personnel development systems throughout the state.
Activities of this project include: (a) providing professional development on the Common Core Standards and developing an infrastructure to support this professional development; (b) providing professional development to schools and districts so that they may go deeper in the implementation of behavior and academic evidence-based programs, in both rural and urban communities across Oregon; (c) providing evidence-based professional development techniques and creating and training teams to support district personnel as they use data-based decision-making; and (d) recruiting and funding Oregon educators in areas of special education most critically under-filled, specifically speech and language pathologists.
