AMPLIFY!

AMPLIFY is a safe space for educators of color to gather, find connection, and improve equity in our schools. AMPLIFY seeks to elevate the voices of educators of color to build a community of support in Central Oregon.

Central Oregon Regional Educator Network

The Central Oregon Regional Educator Network works to create a diverse teacher workforce by supporting system changes from the ground up. We prioritize teacher voice & utilize a continuous improvement process to make changes in our systems that help teachers succeed.

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.

WHAT’S NEW

AMPLIFY Fall Fest was a great success! Educators of color from across Central Oregon gathered on October 23rd to connect and build community. We are thankful for our attendees and our partners for making this event welcoming for all.

AMPLIFY is open to Central Oregon educators of color and students pursuing a career in education. We are kicking off this project in the 2021-22 school year and will host regular gatherings throughout the region.
