Oregon Minimum Standards. Module 1: Overview.
Oregon State Dept. of Education, Salem.
The first of a series of self-instructional learning modules designed to familiarize users with Oregon minimum standards for public schools, this document includes background and expectations concerning Oregon's minimum standards and introduces the publication "Elementary-Secondary Guide for Oregon Schools: Part I, Minimum Standards for Public Schools," a 1976 State Department of Education publication. Introductory performance indicators outline the important information and competencies to be taught in the module. A study guide structures the use of the module and explains the reasons for completing each part. A reprint of "Minimum Standards for Oregon Schools: A Summary," a 1976 State Department of Education publication, presents historical background and explains the new emphasis on outcomes rather than inputs of schooling, graduation requirements, requirements for a certificate of competency, and responsibilities of local districts. A section on "Oregon Minimum Standards for Public Schools: Summaries of OARs Related to Graduation Requirements" outlines and summarizes the Oregon Administrative Rules relating to state minimum standards for graduation requirements. Topics explained include definitions, goals, accreditation, instructional planning, the instructional program, performance, attendance, electives, and responsibility for implementation. Two concluding activities help the user to define terms and verify that desired learning module outcomes have been met. (JM)
