Homeless Student Data for Oregon Released
Each year, the Oregon Department of Education releases data on the number of K-12 homeless students in Oregon schools. The numbers for last year are now available on the ODE website. In Oregon, 18,902 K-12 students experienced homelessness at some point during the 2013-14 school year, an increase of 737 students over the previous year. New data shows that students of color were more likely than their peers to experience homelessness. These numbers underscore the state’s increased emphasis on programs and partnerships that create opportunities for students in the opportunity gap, and support stable and attached families.
Key Pathways for Student Success Recommended to the Governor and Legislature
Monday the Oregon Education Investment Board met to recommend to Governor Kitzhaber, and ultimately the Oregon Legislature, priorities for strategic policies and investments.Opportunities for each and every student to learn and reach their full potential begin with healthy babies and supporting stable and attached families. To ensure each and every Oregon student is successful, these strategic policies and investments are designed to:
- provide a pathway for students to arrive at kindergarten ready to learn and to read proficiently by 3rd grade
- enable the completion of high school and the pursuit of affordable postsecondary education
- prepare students for a career with expanded opportunities for career-technical and STEM education
- improving access to quality childcare and early learning experiences, and ensuring access to full-day kindergarten
