Whether you’ve got a Change Idea in mind or are seeking help and resources from the Central Oregon Regional Educator Network, we’re here to support you.


Join the Central Oregon Regional Educator Network for Belonging Through a Culture of Dignity: A Book Study Community beginning Fall 2023!

Belonging Through a Culture of Dignity couples awareness and action for participants to learn to co-create healthy school and classroom cultures that honor dignity and nurture belonging through three structures: interpersonal, institutional, and instructional.
Participants will learn how to shift mindsets and develop an understanding of what it takes to address educational disparities by creating the conditions that will help all students and staff members thrive. This series is for school-based teams of 3-8 people! All teams will complete a final project that will be shared during our Celebration of Learning.

Schedule and session dates will be released soon!

Participants will be compensated with a $700 stipend for their time and engagement and will receive a free copy of Belonging Through a Culture of Dignity by Floyd Cobb and John Krownapple.

Please complete our interest form and a member of the COREN team will reach out to you.

Collaborative Problem Solving – August 2023

What is Collaborative Problem Solving?

Kids with challenging behavior are tragically misunderstood and mistreated. Rewards and punishments don’t work and often make things worse. Thankfully, there’s another way. But it requires a big shift in mindset.

Helping kids with challenging behavior requires understanding why they struggle in the first place. But what if everything we thought was true about challenging behavior was actually wrong? The Collaborative Problem Solving approach recognizes that kids with challenging behavior are already trying hard. They don’t lack the will to behave well. They lack the skills to behave well.

Join COREN for a two-day Essential Foundations Training through Collaborative Problem Solving at Crook County High School. This free professional development opportunity is open to any Central Oregon educator!
