"I have worked in BSD for 19 years as a Career Technical Education teacher. My goals and ambitions have always been highly supported by my administrators throughout my career. When I have wanted to expand my course offerings, develop department pathways or advance my career, it has always been supported. A true educator is always learning. That's why we love education! BSD supports that growth in a multitude of ways. From professional development, tuition reimbursement, affinity groups and equity groups, there is always something to dig deeper into if you want to learn and grow."- EMILY RAMBERG, CTE TEACHER
BECOMING AN ADMINISTRATOR
In partnership with Beaverton School District, Lewis & Clark College offers a six-term program for aspiring administrators. The purpose of this partnership is to create a diverse cohort of aspiring educational leaders who represent a wide array of backgrounds and experiences and are prepared with the knowledge and skills to reflect critically upon, inquire into and collaboratively improve schools in ways that will best serve the future growth and success of students, staff and communities.
Being an equity-driven program means that in every course, text and assignment, students center discussions on identifying systemic inequalities that exist in school systems to develop leadership approaches and skills that disrupt the status quo, make structural disparities visible and create fairness in opportunities and outcomes for students, families and communities across the P-20 spectrum.
The Oregon Administrator Scholar’s Program (OASP) offers scholarships up to a maximum of $10,000 for racially or linguistically diverse administrator candidates accepted and enrolled in an approved administrator program. The scholarships may be used to pay for classes, fees and related costs.
|All Beaverton School District employees are provided tuition reimbursement up to 12 quarters (or 8 semesters) of college credits per three-year cycle. The benefit can be used at any time over this period and is renewed every three years while working in the district. This benefit can be used for credited courses applied to an advanced degree or certification; graduate, undergraduate, or Community College courses; workshops or conferences. Rules and considerations vary depending on the employee's contract.|
PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT FOR ALL
The Beaverton School District is committed to providing all employees with appropriate and regular professional development to help employees either grow in their current roles or acquire new skills for future roles.
