Raise Up Oregon: A Statewide Early Learning System Plan
Oregon is home to over 275,000 children, birth to kindergarten entry. Our state has an opportunity to change how it supports these children and their families and, in doing so, put itself on the path to an even brighter future. Overwhelming evidence tells us that investing in young children and their families has a lasting, positive impact across their lifetime.
Raise Up Oregon: A Statewide Early Learning System Plan is grounded in the science of child development, equity, and the firm understanding that it takes leaders from early care and education, K-12, health, housing, and human services—together with families, communities, and the public and private sectors—to work together during this critical period of children’s lives.
Oregon is making considerable progress for its youngest children and families through steadfast implementation of Raise Up Oregon.
The Raise Up Oregon Progress Report 2019-2020 (Progress Report) showcases progress across five state agencies between January 2019 and September 2020.
