Curriculum & Assessment
SOESD provides technical assistance and professional development to improve experiences and outcomes and increase safety, significance, and belonging for all. We support schools by acting as a liaison between ODE and our thirteen districts, coordinating and funding regional training opportunities, facilitating review of instructional and assessment resources, alignment of curriculum and assessment with content standards, and support for teacher effectiveness that promotes student achievement.
Southern Oregon Curriculum Directors are comprised of curriculum and instruction leaders from SOESD and the thirteen school districts in Southern Oregon. The Curriculum Directors collaborate to create and coordinate regional opportunities to positively impact curriculum, instruction and assessment in order to raise student achievement.
Instructional Technology Services/ Data Driven Decision Making
SOESD provides training and resources on the effective use of technology for teaching and the use of data driven decision making using relevant metrics by student support teams to provide interventions and wrap around services that increase student achievement. The program also supports the Southern Oregon Ed Tech Cadre of teachers, and the annual Southern Oregon Ed Tech Summit.
