Governor John A. Kitzhaber speaking
at OLN Fall Institute on Dec. 3, 2013
Ensuring equitable opportunities for Oregon students is “absolutely essential” said Governor John A. Kitzhaber, M.D. at the Oregon Leadership Network (OLN) Fall Institute on December 3, 2013 at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland. In addition to Governor Kitzhaber, OLN members heard from Rob Saxton, Deputy Superintendent of the Oregon Department of Education, as well as a panel of expert educators on the theme of the event, “Building Evidence-Based Equity Leadership,” hosted by event cosponsor Beaverton School District.
Organized by Education Northwest, the twice-yearly OLN institutes provide an opportunity for teams of Oregon educators to engage in powerful professional development and networking.
The Leadership for Equity Assessment & Development (LEAD) Tool helps schools and districts develop organizational leadership capacity for equity. Through a set of rubrics, leadership teams work together to eliminate race-, class-, and other group-based disparities in student opportunities and outcomes. Educational leadership students can also use the tool as part of their instructional and licensure coursework:
