Our Students Thriving

Nearly 20% of all Oregon students have direct experience with the state’s English Learner programs. Within this student population there is tremendous diversity in their lived experiences, and in the cultural and linguistic assets they bring to their schools and districts. The purpose of this conference and the sessions presented will aspire to the goal of engaging and challenging all learners to ensure academic excellence through accessible, inclusive and personally meaningful learning opportunities.

This conference is being planned as a face-to-face, in-person event.  Participants must provide proof of vaccination (with card or on phone); a negative COVID-19 test taken within 48 hours of the conference will be accepted in lieu of proof of vaccination only for individuals with a religious or medical exception.  Wearing a mask when not eating or drinking on site is required for all conference participants. Please know that our top priority is your health.
