ACCELERATED LEARNING OPTIONS

Oregon legislation requires the State Boards of Education and Higher Education to meet at least annually as the Joint Boards of education to coordinate activities and policy. Legislation requires that community colleges and state institutions of higher education cooperate in providing an effective articulation and transfer framework for students in Oregon's postsecondary sectors. This must include the development of uniform standards for awarding college credit for advanced placement test scores; and the expansion of early college programs for 11th and 12th graders who earn college credit and intend to pursue a certificate or associate or baccalaureate degree. The state's Expanded Options program supports high school students' early entry into postsecondary studies for dual credit by providing public funding to the postsecondary institutions to offset the cost of tuition, fees, textbooks, equipment and materials for students who participate in the program. Postsecondary institutions who receive state funds for participating students may not charge students any tuition or fees, but the postsecondary and secondary institutions should negotiate a financial agreement to cover the actual instructional costs. The law requires that all high school students and their parents must be informed of the program, and outreach to dropouts is emphasized. The law also sets some limits on the amount of time students may participate and on the number of credit hours awarded to students at any one high school. The Department of Education must provide an annual report on the Expanded Options Program to the Joint Boards of Education and the House and Senate committees relating to education.

ADULT LEARNERS

The Oregon Department of Community Colleges and Workforce Development oversee the adult education programs in the State. This Department administers federal Adult Education and Family Literacy Act funds to local providers and provides local programs with leadership and training in order to assure quality basic skills services for adults across Oregon. The purpose of the Adult Basic Skills Program is to assist adults in obtaining the knowledge and skills necessary for work, further education, family self-sufficiency, and community involvement. Basic skills include reading, writing, math, speaking/listening in English, GED and adult high school preparation, and basic computer literacy. The agency's Dislocated Worker Unit is the state's clearinghouse for Worker Adjustment Retraining Notification information, and works closely with local program providers to deliver services to workers affected by layoffs and closures. The Higher Education Coordinating Commission works with the State Board of Higher Education, community college districts, and independent for-profit and not-for-profit institutions of higher education to increase the number of students who receive academic credit for prior learning that can be counted towards their degree, certificate, or credential. According to statute (Ore. Rev. Stat. 351.646), a person serving in the US armed forces can receive college credit for education and training obtained during their service. Lastly, the Administrator of Correctional Education administers an adult basic skills development program for all inmates in the Department of Corrections. (Last updated 2013)

ARTICULATION, TRANSFER, AND ALIGNMENT

In Oregon, institution-to-institution articulation and transfer agreements are fairly common. Legislation passed in 1987 called for cooperation between the university system and community colleges in overcoming obstacles to transfer and the development of a set of general requirements for transfer students seeking admission to university system institutions. As a result a block-transfer degree, the Associate of Arts/Oregon Transfer degree (A.A.O.T.), allows students to meet the lower-division general education requirements of Oregon University System (OUS) institutions. A second statewide block-transfer degree was added in 2003, the Associate of Science/Oregon Transfer degree in Business (A.S.O.T.B.). Legislation passed in 1977 required the Joint Boards of Education (JBAC), comprised of the Oregon State Board of Education and the Oregon State Board of Higher Education, to meet annually to develop agreements in areas of education policy which are of mutual interest to the two boards and to the populations served by them. This law was revised in 2005 and now requires community colleges and institutions in the OUS to work together towards the creation of a statewide articulation and transfer system.

DATA AND ACCOUNTABILITY SYSTEMS

The Oregon Department of Community Colleges and Workforce Development maintains OCCURS, the Oregon Community College Unified Reporting System while the Oregon University System maintains SCARF, the Student Centralized Administrative Reporting File. Both are comprehensive unit record databases of students, courses, instructors, registrations, and completions. Students can be tracked from one system to the other through long standing unit record data sharing. Special studies have linked these two data sources with the Department of Education's K-12 unit record data to examine the effectiveness of certain programs and policies. Efforts are underway to create a single research data warehouse (absent personal identifiers) for studying the behaviors and performance of students as they pass through the various educational sectors within the state.

EARLY OUTREACH PROGRAMS

For over a decade, Oregon has had a statewide strategy for increasing the number of middle and high school students who are prepared to enter and succeed in postsecondary education. As a foundation for this strategy, the standards and assessments for student performance in elementary, middle, and high school are aligned with college entry requirements. Both the Boards of Education and Higher Education have adopted this K-16 alignment and the use of a Proficiency-based Admission Standards System (PASS) for entry into Oregon's seven public universities. A system for collecting and exchanging student performance data across the K-12 and post-secondary sectors is under development. The Joint Boards of Education (K-12, community colleges and the Oregon University System is focusing on this area as well as on the challenges of affordability, access, and quality. Early outreach efforts of the Oregon University System include: Freshmen Performance Reports, and the Advanced Placement Incentive Program. Specific outreach programs such as the Oregon Network for Education (ONE) connect high school students directly to the school, college, or university to learn about admission, registration, enrollment and financial aid available in distance education modes.

FINANCE

By statute, the Oregon University System (OUS), in accordance with the rules adopted by the State Board of Higher Education, prescribes student fees and charges. However, the OUS Board of Trustees has delegated to each institution's president the authority and responsibility to set resident and non-resident fees and charges. These fees are in addition to the required instruction fee, building fee, health service fee, incidental fee and other charges determined and established by the Board. Residency is determined by maintaining a predominant physical presence in Oregon for 12 consecutive months after moving to the state. The board of education of each community college prescribes and collects fees at the two-year institutions. Eligible armed services personnel and their spouses and dependent children are classified as residents for tuition purposes, as are members of federally recognized Native American tribes.

STUDENT FINANCIAL AID

The Oregon Student Assistance Commission (OSAC) administers a variety of federal, state, institutional and privately-funded student financial aid programs. A combination of merit and need-based programs are provided. Oregon's need-based state grant program, the Oregon Opportunity Grant, provides funds to eligible residents. Oregon also offers many other grants/scholarships through partnerships with private funds and public administration with its OSAC Scholarship Services. One program that is a result of a partnership is the ASPIRE Program (Access to Student assistance Programs In Reach of Everyone) which is designed to encourage students who do not see education beyond high school. For the 2005-2063 academic year, Oregon awarded 29,361 million for need-based aid and 68,000 for non-need-based aid. (Prepared by the State Higher Education Executive Officers, 2008)

TEACHING QUALITY

Over the past decade, Oregon has addressed a number of features related to teacher quality. In 1997, the legislature authorized the redesign of teacher preparation and licensure (SB 124) to incorporate performance-based assessments for both the Initial and Continuing Teaching licenses. In 1999, the state implemented a four-stage licensure system to better align with Oregon's student and school accountability measures. The requirements for an Initial (3-year) teaching license include an extended professional portfolio with work samples, instructional plans, and student data. Teachers must also have at least 15 weeks of supervised student teaching, pass state and federal criminal background checks, and pass national basic skills and content tests. For educators licensed after 1999, those seeking a five-year continuing license must have a master's degree, National Board for Professional Teaching Standards certification, or doctorate in education. The state has also dramatically increased the number of professional development hours required for teachers. In 2007, the legislature enacted legislation strengthening beginning and administrator mentoring in the state. (Last updated 2008)
