ESEA Flexibility

Five Key Areas of Effectiveness Defined

Effective schools and districts perform well in each of five key areas, which closely align to the
USED seven turnaround principles. Oregon’s definitions of the five key areas, and
corresponding turnaround principles, are provided below. Oregon educators consider it
important that turnaround principle five (v) – using data to inform instruction and for continuous
improvement, including providing time for collaboration on the use of data – be woven
throughout all of the five key areas. Therefore, this turnaround principle is not listed separately.

As a charter school it is VERY necessary to know personally who represents your district.  We encourage you all to invite them to your school for lunch and a tour.
