Better is Possible

MCREN listens to educators to understand the challenges of teaching and what could make it better.

MCREN Supports Districts with SB 283 Implementation

In 2023, Senate Bill 283 allocated $8 million to the Oregon Department of Education to support mentoring programs for educators for the 2023-2025 biennium. These one time funds will support formal mentoring programs that follow the requirements outlined in the former Oregon Mentor Program.

The Multnomah-Clackamas Regional Educator Network (MCREN) is one of 10 Regional Educator Networks in Oregon, supported by the Educator Advancement Council (EAC), an innovative public/nonprofit partnership created by the Oregon Legislature through the passage of Senate Bill 182 (2017) to support the public educator profession from the inside out.

MCREN listens to educators to understand the challenges of teaching and what could make it better. We involve those closest to the problem in order to solve it.

At the heart of our work is the voice of the educator.

Why We Do It.

When teachers are at their best, they are able to provide high quality education that our students deserve.

MCREN empowers and enables educators to be their greatest.

What People are Saying About MCREN

“Being a part of the MCREN — and, further, encouraging staff to directly interface with the support and coaching available — has allowed us to grow momentum for much-needed priorities. Ultimately, this effort geared toward supporting specific focal populations has been a multiplier of effort, important for a smaller school district.”

MCREN District Leader

“Upon first meeting my mentor I believed I couldn’t teach well; now I KNOW I am able to teach better.”

New Educator in MCREN Mentor Program

“MCREN has given me several opportunities to connect with other BIPOC educators which is so important because there aren’t many of us. So having and building that support system is clutch. It has made me feel appreciated, respected, and heard.”

Teacher, North Clackamas School District

“I genuinely have never felt so seen or cared for. You have no idea the impact you had on my practice.”
