In January 2020, the Oregon Department of Education will begin sharing Tribal History/Shared History curriculum as set forth by Oregon Senate Bill 13. As lesson plans become available, teachers and administrators can start preparing to integrate Indigenous Studies into their classrooms.
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. Our mission is to leverage the expertise and experience of teachers to advance equity and social justice for the students of Oregon by promoting teacher voice across multiple channels to influence policy and activate change.

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.
