April, 9 2015 – Children-at-Risk – Study – General Meeting

Children-at-Risk-ConsensusQuestions-2-27-15-s – At this meeting our members will review of  the status of children in Oregon and the concerns for the children identified as at risk. The Consensus questions focus the concerns of the members to come to a consensus on topics that the league would take action on.

Topic: Oregon League of Women Voters (state-wide) Children-at-Risk-Study
This study examines how the most vulnerable children in our state are identified and receive early intervention services that may enhance their chances to thrive in life. It specifically addresses:

  • recent changes: in legislation relating to early learning;
  • restructuring and delivery of services in Oregon at state, county and local levels for children 0-6 (including 0-8 for 3rd grade reading assessments);
  • flow of federal and state funding, passed through to local Oregon communities;
  • refinement of a quantifiable data system evaluating effectiveness of interventions, funding efficiencies, and tracking those historically under served.

 11:30a No-host brown bag lunch, 12:00 noon
