Aligning for Student Success: Integrated Guidance for ODE Initiatives
In 2022, the Oregon Department of Education (ODE) implemented a new initiative, Aligning for Student Success: Integrated Guidance for Six ODE Initiatives. The guidance brings six programs together to create opportunities for improving outcomes and learning conditions for students and educators. The intent of the Integrated Guidance initiative is to streamline the grant application process while simultaneously aligning strategies to provide better outcomes for students. The six grants that are a part of the initiative include:
High School Success (HSS) is focused on improvement of graduation rates as well as career and college readiness.
Student Investment Account (SIA) is focused on reducing academic disparities while increasing academic achievement and meeting the mental and behavioral health needs of students.
Continuous Improvement Planning (CIP) is focused on continuous improvement of educational opportunities.
Career and Technical Education (CTE/Perkins) is focused on development of academic knowledge in addition to technical and employability skills for secondary students.
Every Day Matters (EDM) is focused on addressing chronic absenteeism through increased attention to student engagement, school culture, climate and safety, culturally sustaining pedagogy, and family and community involvement.
Early Indicator and Intervention Systems (EIIS) is focused on creating and supporting cohesive systems of data collection and analysis, interventions, and support.
