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.
WORKING WITH COREN
The Central Oregon Regional Educator Network works to create a diverse teacher workforce by supporting system changes from the ground up. By learning from educators, we seek to make changes that support a life-long career of teaching in Central Oregon.
