Greetings from the Director of School Improvement!

Kathy McCollum, Director of School Improvement
Kathy McCollum, Director of School Improvement
School Improvement is a very broad area that covers many different programs. Migrant Ed./ELL, Career and Technical Education, and Direct School Improvement Services all fall under the umbrella of School Improvement. The articles in this edition of the SOESD Newsletter are just a brief "glimpse" of all that is happening in our world.
 
We have written and received funding from many federal and state grants and subgrants this year. Migrant Title 1C and Perkins funding are two of our largest grants, ones that we manage annually. In addition, the Oregon Mentor Project is funding services for beginning teachers and administrators, and has brought over $300,000 into our Southern Oregon region. Twenty-five Jackson and Josephine County teachers are completing their Reading Endorsement virtually "free" as a result of a Reading First subgrant from ODE. The Oregon Data Project and Educational Technology have also received grant funding to support regional projects. All of these grants provide us with opportunities to enhance and enrich our School Improvement resolution services.
 
Another exciting service being provided to educational leaders in our region is the Marshall Memo, a weekly synopsis of educational articles compiled by education author and consultant Kim Marshall from Massachusetts. The Southern Oregon ESD, with support of funding from the Oregon Leadership Grant, is bringing Marshall to Medford on February 19 to present a workshop entitled, "Rethinking Teacher Supervision and Evaluation."  To register, please go to www.soesd.k12.or.us/pdnetworks. The cost is $25 for regional educators and $40 for those who are from outside the SOESD area.
 
Please feel free to contact us in School Improvement to assist you with your specific school district needs. (541) 245-4629
