The Freshman Success Network (FSN) serves as a professional learning community offering ongoing coaching and leadership support for implementation of Freshman Success (also known as “on-track”) strategies. From seven partner school districts in 2017-18, we are expanding our reach in 2018-19 by establishing five regional networks to provide increased access and support to districts and educators across the state.
Drawing on a partnership with the University of Chicago’s Network for College Success
, FSN provides tailored one-on-one coaching, implementation guidance and support for schools in the network. Members also visit Chicago schools to see Freshman Success programs in action, learn from educators in the field and hear from policy experts engaged in this work. As FSN schools in Oregon establish their own Freshman Success programming, they will serve as advisors to their peers, sharing their successes and challenges as we move forward.
In 2017-18, we partnered with seven Oregon school districts to establish our first cohort of the Freshman Success Network:
• Eugene 4J
• St. Helens
In 2018-19, we are establishing five regional networks to include all Oregon school districts. Click here to see which network your school district belongs to.
A series of FSN collaborative meetings are scheduled for this Spring and Summer, with plans for Chicago schools visits in October 2018. Learn more about the collaboratives here
