Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year Oregon educators! We continue our resilience development, while we support, adapt and adjust to the needs of our students, who continue to learn and grow, academically and socially-emotionally. We continue to define what a quality education is in support of the whole child and whole educator. Our commitment in Oregon still fosters equity and excellence for every learner through collaboration with educators, partners, and communities. Where every child is healthy, safe, engaged, supported, and challenged and benefits from a world-class, well-rounded and equitable education leading to student success.
Last year ORASCD had an amazing and successful Early Learning conference as we continue to engage and challenge ourselves as we forge a growing partnership between early learning and K-12 for the success of the whole child. It was amazing having PreK - 2 educators together, learning from one another! We hope to continue the development of our programming through the 23-24 year! Please continue to visit the website (ascdoregon.org) to read about upcoming programming and learning opportunities. We hope this is a place for Oregon educators to connect, learn and grow as you continue to reflect on your purpose of why you became an educator as we focus our learning on the whole child and whole educator. We look forward to a successful year for all!
