REN Purpose

The purpose of the RENs is to center on student and educator strengths to redesign and/or transform systems and operationalize Oregon’s Equity Lens.


The RENs are tasked with:

  • growing, diversifying, and honoring the educator workforce

  • providing relevant, meaningful support for new teachers

  • keeping teachers engaged in effective, impactful, and lasting learning


These system redesigns and transformations will lead to students' experiences being rooted in belonging, culturally sustaining, and engaging each student.
