With public schools in Oregon just over a year away from having the opportunity to implement state-funded full-day kindergarten, COSA’s first Statewide Full-day Kindergarten Summit is set for Friday, May 2, at the Red Lion Hotel in Salem.
Two-day Common Core State Standards (CCSS) Regional Trainings are scheduled in five locations around Oregon in April and May. Math, reading and writing trainings will be offered for Grades K-2 and 3-5 (day one) and Grades 6-12 (day two).
The short session of the Oregon Legislature adjourned last Friday after 33 days of work that drew mixed reviews from lawmakers and Capitol regulars. The most common complaint was that the liberal bill introduction policy brought back legislation that failed to make the grade in the last regular session, which ended less than a year ago.
