History of Educator Networks
The Educator Advancement Council developed a statewide network to increase equitable access to professional learning for all educators.
In 2017, Senate Bill 182 was passed for the purpose of finding new approaches to professional learning and development. The Educator Advancement Council (EAC) would facilitate this work by elevating teacher voice and equity by moving towards regional-specific supports. In turn, Regional Educator Networks (RENs) were created and one of these RENs is the Columbia Regional Educator Network, serving Hood River, Wasco, Sherman, Wheeler, and Gilliam counties.
