From the Oregon Department of Education:

With the Governor’s recent announcements, elevating teacher voice is as important as ever. On December 23 Governor Brown announced changes to the Ready Schools, Safe Learners guidance. Some of these changes, including transitioning the Health Metrics for Returning to In-Person Instruction from mandatory to advisory, take effect on January 1, 2021. Other changes are set to be in place on or about January 19, 2021.

Over the next two weeks the Oregon Department of Education and the Oregon Health Authority will be engaging with school and community partners to explain the changes that took effect on January 1 and get input on any changes for the January 19 update. With the hope of these updates being informed by teacher voice, I’d like to hear your ideas and help to answer questions you may have.
