Distinguished Educators Council is Recruiting New Members!
The Distinguished Educators Council (DEC) was organized by Chalkboard Project in 2012 as a strategy for ensuring that Oregon is a great place to teach and learn. The council leverages the expertise and experience of its teacher members to advance equity and social justice for the students of Oregon by promoting teacher voice across multiple channels to influence policy and activate change.
Serving on the DEC is an opportunity to amplify teacher voice, engage policy makers, and advocate for all Oregon students. We want to give you and your frontline experience a seat at the table by investing in your leadership capacity, political and strategic knowledge, and communication skills.
DEC members participate in monthly meetings, including shorter online meetings and longer in-person work sessions. Meetings typically take place outside the teaching workday. We maximize the use of technology to remove barriers for participation, and we also value in-person opportunities to deepen relationships. DEC members receive an honorarium for their service, and travel costs are covered.
The Distinguished Educators Council is a team of highly effective teacher leaders with a demonstrated track record of leadership and advocacy. We would love for you to join us. Are you a champion of the teaching profession? Do you seek opportunities to network with and learn from teachers across Oregon? Do you want to build your efficacy in teacher leadership? Apply for a seat on the Distinguished Educators Council by November 19, 2018.
