Time:  5:30-7:30pm
Location:  Ford Alumni Center, University of Oregon, 1720 East 13th Avenue, Eugene, Oregon 97403
 Join the African American/Black Student Success Plan Advisory Group members and ODE Staff for refreshments and to learn about the plan and provide input on challenges and opportunities facing African American/Black students in your community.

HB2016 directs the Oregon Department of Education to develop and implement a statewide education plan for early childhood through post-secondary education students who are Black or African American or not covered by existing statewide education plan and have experienced disproportionate educational results.  The plan will address:

  • Disparities experienced by African American and Black students in every indicator of academic success
  • Historical practices leading to disproportionate outcomes for students
  • Educational needs of students from early childhood through post-secondary education by examining culturally appropriate best practices in Oregon and across the nation

As part of this plan, ODE will be awarding grants to early learning hubs, early learning service providers, school districts, post-secondary institutions, and community-based organizations to implement strategies developed in the plan.

Similar meetings will take place in other parts of the state.  For more information, contact Kendra Hughes at or 503.947.5978.
