Oregon Administrator Scholars Program

As Oregon’s K-12 student population becomes more ethnically and linguistically diverse, our school administrative and leadership workforce needs to better mirror the demographics of the students in our schools. The EAC and Oregon's Teacher Standards and Practices Commission have partnered to establish the Oregon Administrator Scholars Program to address financial barriers that pose challenges for ethnically and linguistically diverse candidates pursuing their administrative license towards becoming a school administrator or district leader in Oregon.
