At Chalkboard, we believe that books are a powerful portal into new perspectives! As Dr. Seuss says, “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go!” Here’s what Chalkboard staff is reading this summer.
Hi Katie! Thank you so much for taking the time to talk with me!
Better Together is located in Central Oregon. Can you tell me a little about the community?

I recently spoke with Umatilla School District Superintendent Heidi Sipe. Heidi was named 2016 Oregon Superintendent of the Year and it is clear why she was given this honor. She has a deep respect for her students and community and works every day to find ways to positively impact their school experience.

Chalkboard Project believes that we cannot positively affect the outcomes of all students if we do not take into account the unique challenges facing our students of color, students experiencing poverty and students living in rural communities. We are supporting several important legislative bills and funding requests introduced this legislative session that focus on creating a more equitable experience for all students including House Bill 2897.
Oregon’s African American/Black Student Success Plan sets out an ambitious and comprehensive plan to support young people struggling in an inequitable education system.
