Regional Educator Network (REN)
In 2017, Oregon Legislature passed Senate Bill 182 which created the Educator Advancement Council (EAC), an innovative public/nonprofit partnership designed to support public educators. Through this bill, the EAC was charged with the task of creating local educator networks. These ten networks or “Regional Educator Networks” (REN) are designed to create a seamless system through three major vehicles: teacher voice, an equity lens, and a continuous improvement model.
Our Regional Educator Network (Region D) encompasses thirty-one total school districts spanning the Willamette ESD and South Coast ESD Region.
