SOESD / Learning Matters / Newsletter Archive / November 2007 / Director's Welcome
Greetings from the School Improvement Team! We are pleased to bring you some information about activities and services that we have been offering from the School Improvement Branch of the Southern Oregon ESD. School Improvement encompasses Curriculum and Assessment, Career and Technical Education, Migrant Education/ELL, and general school improvement services, including attendance, helping schools with their Continuous Improvement Plans (CIP), Response to Intervention (RTI), and Positive Behavior Supports (PBS).
We are consciously trying to reach out to all thirteen of our component school districts—nine in Jackson County, two in Josephine County, and two in Klamath County. Because the SOESD serves the largest geographic area of any of the Oregon ESDs, our team is “on the road” much of the time. We hope that teachers, as well as administrators, will call our staff for assistance with any School Improvement matters at 541-245-4629. We look forward to meeting and working with all of you!
