The Kellogg Foundation recently supported an evaluation of Chalkboard and our work to catalyze change in Oregon.

Who We Are

About Us

The Chalkboard Project is an independent education transformation organization dedicated to making Oregon’s K-12 public schools among the best in the country. We are funded by a consortium of Oregon’s leading philanthropic foundations that share a central belief that research and on-the-ground expert knowledge is essential to identifying policies and practices that improve outcomes for students.

Chalkboard plays a unique role in improving education in Oregon by:

  • Providing independent research as the basis for reforms;
  • Partnering with educators and experts to design and implement pilot programs and advocate for reforms; and
  • Serving as an independent voice to citizens, education stakeholders and decision makers.

Our Mission

To help create systemic reform in the quality, accountability, and stable funding of Oregon’s K-12 public schools. 

Our Vision

Oregon’s K-12 schools are among the top ten in the nation as measured by student achievement and educational equity.
