Task Force Reports Summaries, Revised.
Oregon State Dept. of Education, Salem.
The Oregon Educational Act for the 21st Century was passed to restructure the public school system to address past shortcomings and to prepare for the future. The act provided a blueprint for 10 task forces appointed by the Superintendent for Public Instruction to explore ways to initiate and implement reform. This report contains summaries of those committees' work: their definitions and beliefs, recommendations, and documents which have guided their decision making. The task forces included nongraded primary, middle education level, Certificate of Initial Mastery, Certificate of Advanced Mastery, school choice, alternative learning environments, extended school day/year, employment of minors, integration of social services, and site-based decision making. Appendices of each task force report summary include documents and information used in making recommendations and the names of task force members with their affiliations. (JPT)
