The College of Education has a long history of partnership with K-12 school districts in Oregon and the Educational Service Districts that serve them. We facilitate  continuing education opportunities for district faculty and staff that range from Master of Arts in Teaching initial licensure programs for Instructional Assistants to Specializations and Endorsements for teachers. We have creatively designed affordable programs that accommodate the needs of districts and their employees, offering online, hybrid, and on-site courses within the district.

We have several current collaborations developing educator work forces in:

Hillsboro School District

  • Bi-literacy with Reading Endorsement
  • ESOL/Bilingual Endorsement
  • Special Education Master’s in Education with Initial Licensure
