We're Seeking Ideas!

The Central Oregon Regional Educator Network works to create a diverse teacher workforce by supporting system changes from the ground up. We are seeking ideas from local teachers to further support and recruit teachers of color.

Improvement Science and Why it Works

Improvement Science is at the root of our work in the Central Oregon Regional Educator Network. Learn why.

Central Oregon Regional Educator Network

Central Oregon Regional Educator Network was established in January 2020 with the goal of improving aspects of the teacher experience, including recruitment, teacher development, retention, and leadership building. The COREN is especially focused on improving these experiences for our teachers of color.

We prioritize teacher voice and utilize a continuous improvement process to make changes in our systems that help teachers succeed.

The COREN supports projects (or Change Ideas) that increase the recruitment and retention of qualified and certified teachers who reflect the faces of our students. Support includes coaching, professional development, networked improvement, and funding. COREN funding must support projects that implement change to improve existing programs.
