State education task force comes to Beaverton
A statewide fact-finding mission focused on school success is coming to Beaverton.
Prior to the start of the 2018 legislative session, Oregon House Speaker Tina Kotek and Oregon Senate President Peter Courtney announced the creation of a Joint Committee on Student Success, a committee of Democrats and Republicans from the House and Senate, formed to explore best practices employed in Oregon schools; to create a plan for improved student success; and to develop a budget proposal that would adequately fund high-quality K-12 education across the state.
Part of the committee's work involves holding a series of public hearings across the state to gather feedback.
The committee will meet from 7 to 9 p.m. Wednesday, July 11, at the Arts & Communication Magnet Academy, 11375 S.W. Center St., Beaverton.
The other meeting in this area is set for 7 to 9 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 27, at James Madison High School, 2735 N.E. 82nd Ave., Portland.
