Statewide online survey (open through April 15th)

In 2021, the state legislature directed the Oregon Department of Education (ODE) to review state high school graduation requirements. As part of that work, ODE wants to know what matters most to people about earning a high school diploma in our state. Oregon’s Kitchen Table is working with ODE to gather input from people across the state about this topic from mid-February to mid-March 2022.  We are planning different ways for people to share what they think.  OKT will be working with community organizers to do culturally specific outreach and engagement and holding listening sessions and interviews for communities who have not been well served by the education system, including students with disabilities, English language learners, immigrants and refugees, students who move frequently, and Black and Native and Indigenous students and other communities of color.  We'll also be hosting an online statewide survey in 7 languages as well as regional community conversations in each of the state's 19 Educational Service Districts.

Community conversations

A series of regional community conversations were held for community members in each of Oregon's 19 Educational Service Districts.  These forums were held on Zoom.  If you have any questions, please contact Oregon’s Kitchen Table (  

If you were not able to attend a session for your region, you can still share what you think here through April 15th.  

Culturally specific outreach and engagement

Oregon's Kitchen Table works with community organizers and community partners to create ways for people, including people whose primary language is a language other than English, to share what they think.  This particular community engagement effort is focusing on communities who are / have:

  • Racial and ethnic groups who have historically experienced economic disparities
  • Tribal members and citizens 
  • Experienced a disability
  • English learners
  • Immigrants and refugees
  • Migrant workers 
  • Experienced houselessness
  • Foster care
  • Changed high schools and / or are highly mobile
