Each of Oregon’s 19 ESDs has deployed a liaison to support the Student Success Act (HB 3427) and requirements identified under the School Investment Account. All 19 ESDs and their SSA Liaisons are responsible for providing technical assistance and capacity-building to all school district and charter school participants.
The liaisons are the primary point of contact and collaboration between ODE’s Office of Education, Innovation, and Improvement; the ESD represented; and the districts within the ESD’s service region. Examples of support include the following: technical assistance throughout the application process, identification and support for best practices for meeting performance growth targets, identification of and support for implementing promising practices, and attention to cultivating a culture of internal accountability.
OAESD works collaboratively with all 19 ESDs and their liaisons to effectively carry forth the tasks identified. OAESD also partners with ODE’s Office of Education, Innovation, and Improvement for collaboration in the design and specifications of protocols under SSA.
