Description

State English Learners Alliance Conference

March 14-15, 2013 • Eugene Hilton

 

“Learn Together - Engage in Conversation - Focus on All English Learners - Best Practice”

 

Co-Sponsored by: Oregon Department of Education

 

Achievement gaps between English Language and non English Language students are deeply rooted, pervasive, complex and challenging for all Oregon educators.  We believe in an Alliance of Oregon organizations and educators actively addressing the complex issues by engaging in research and advocacy and proposing strategies that we can pursue individually and collectively to help eliminate those gaps.  We strive to make our initial conference in Eugene, March 14, 15 the beginning of ongoing learning as a state, benefitting the entire state into the future.

 

The primary organizations of Confederation of Oregon School Administrators and Oregon Department of Education will bring together national and regionally recognized speakers, Oregon practitioners that have implemented effective practices, along with supportive organizations and associations to provide information and training sessions for school and district teachers, trainers, and administrators.

  • Kathy Escamilla, Professor of Education, University of Colorado
  • Aida Walqui, Director of the Teacher Professional Development Program, WestEd, Stanford
  • Rob Saxton, Deputy Superintendent, Oregon Department of Education
  • David Bautista, Superintendent, Woodburn SD 103/New Assistant Superintendent, ODE
