Oregon Outreach has been providing proficiency based instruction for over 25 years. We develop individualized contracts that are aligned with the Oregon Standards. These contracts are divided into areas in which the student must demonstrate understanding and a level of proficiency to earn credit for that contract. As public schools in Oregon are moving to proficiency based instruction, we believe that we can be a leader in this area, as Oregon Outreach has been successful in implementing this type of instructional method for years. Also, our students have the same opportunities as those in public schools and are able to study and demonstrate proficiency in the same core content areas. Our teachers are also able to design and implement elective credits that meet the graduation requirements and the individual interests of our students.
