Columbia REN Leadership Committee
RECRUITING MEMBERS NOW!
The CREN Leadership Committee is a coordinating body, advisory/decision-making committee of regional stakeholders.
This committee consists of representatives from our region and who's role is to identify regional priorities, allocate funding and other resources to network districts, and coordinate the partnerships between community organizations and the districts in Hood River, Wasco, Sherman, Wheeler, and Gilliam counties.
The Coordinating Body is responsible for overseeing the work and implementation of REN priorities/initiatives in a way that maintains a regional perspective. This committee keeps a watchful eye on the impact of the change ideas, monitors success of implementation, adjusts priorities as needed, and course-corrects when necessary.
Our leadership team prioritizes educator voice and need. To ensure we center educators in our work, school-based licensed staff make the majority of our leadership structure.
Non-administrative members receive a stipend to compensate them for their time serving on our leadership team.
Leadership team members serve as a connector to the educators in their buildings and districts.
Using the information we gather from educators and the data available, this team is the primary body of decision makers.
Attend team meetings, and gather information for us by sharing and talking with educators. Bring your creativity, innovation, and perspective.
Be change agents.
Bring educators' voices to the forefront.
*Non-administrative members receive a stipend for their time and commitment.
