We're Seeking Ideas!

The Central Oregon Regional Educator Network works to create a diverse teacher workforce by supporting system changes from the ground up. We are seeking ideas from local teachers to further support and recruit teachers of color.

COREN Implementation Update

We’re excited to share our progress as we begin to implement Change Ideas at the school level!

Crook County Recruitment Video Debut

Crook County School District partnered with COREN to enhance their recruitment program. One of their goals is to attract a more diverse workforce that reflects the faces of their students. We’re proud of this new video that was created through the Change Idea process!

Central Oregon Regional Educator Network Overview

 

Central Oregon Regional Educator Network was established in January 2020 with the goal of improving aspects of the teacher experience, including recruitment, teacher development, retention, and leadership building. The COREN is especially focused on improving these experiences for our teachers of color.

We prioritize teacher voice and utilize a continuous improvement process to make changes in our systems that help teachers succeed.

The COREN supports projects (or Change Ideas) that increase the recruitment and retention of qualified and certified teachers who reflect the faces of our students. Support includes coaching, professional development, networked improvement, and funding. COREN funding must support projects that implement change to improve existing programs.

We’re currently seeking Change Ideas! Want to learn more? Click here to read about COREN and how we help turn ideas into reality!
