Oregon Outreach Mission Statement

The mission of Oregon Outreach is to provide an accredited academic program along with a comprehensive support system that enables youth to succeed in the classroom, at home, and in the community.

How Oregon Outreach Helps Achieve Student Success

Individualized Learning

Since its accreditation from the Northwest Association of Schools, Colleges and Universities in 1994, Oregon Outreach Inc. (OOI) has graduated over 400 students. Communities from Beaverton to Gresham, and Molalla to Scappoose, and many in between have contracted with OOI to provide instructional programs with flexible scheduling and individualized instruction. Dedicated staff personalizes instruction to meet Oregon State Standards, as well as, provide emotional support and basic life skills when the situation arises.

Proficiency Based Instruction

Oregon Outreach has been providing proficiency based instruction for over 25 years. We develop individualized curriculum, called contracts, that are aligned with the Oregon State Education 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 towards proficiency based instruction, we believe that we can be are a leader in this area as OOI has been successful in successfully implementing this type of instructional method for years.

Earn Your High School Diploma

Oregon Outreach is accredited by AdvancEd. This allows students the opportunity to earn the same official high school diploma that would be obtained at any public high school in Oregon.  All four of our programs offer both modified and regular diplomas that meet the standards that all public schools in Oregon are required to meet. Students may also have the opportunity to earn a GED.

Collaborative Problem-Solving

During February 2014, Oregon Outreach staff was fully trained in the use of Collaborative Problem Solving (CPS).  CPS is an approach for responding to challenging behaviors in ways that preserve the integrity of the child while simultaneously building the skills that are lagging that cause the behaviors to be present in the first place.

Relationally based and supported by research, CPS views challenging behavior as a learning disability of some very crucial cognitive (thinking) skills necessary to handle the demands of everyday life and not the result of a child’s willfulness or poor parenting. Through a more empathetic and accurate understanding of what is getting in a child’s way, staff are better able intervene to support children through a collaborative process.
