Want to Know More about LETRS Professional Development or the Oregon Kids Read Petition?

Please join us at the IPD (Instruction and Professional Development) committee meeting on Wednesday, February 5, 4:30 - 6:30. The Oregon Kids Read Petition organizers have asked for PAT’s support. This meeting will be a chance to ask questions and get answers so we can decide whether or not to support the petition as an organization.   

Please RSVP here and select "IPD” as your committee.

The petition calls on the Oregon legislature to dedicate 2 percent of the $1 billion Student Success Act budget (from the Statewide Initiatives Fund) towards K-3 reading instruction that’s proven to work for students, including struggling readers, and is specifically tied to a training called LETRS.

We will hear from some of our fellow PAT members who have begun the LETRS training on their own initiative and from PPS parent, Angela Uherbelau, who is part of the group that started the petition. We want to hear what our educators have to say about this and give you all a chance to find out what you'd like to know.
