Change Ideas

We prioritize teacher voice & utilize a continuous improvement process to make changes in our systems that help teachers succeed.

Have an Idea? Let’s Connect!

In an effort to improve educator well being throughout Multnomah and Clackamas Counties, MCREN listens to educators to understand the challenges of teaching and what could make it better. Our support model includes coaching, professional development, networked improvement, and funding. MCREN involves those closest to the work in order to create regional change.

A Change Idea is a concept or idea to improve a process, system or project in order to enhance the educator experience. Change Ideas are informed by those closest to the work (educators) and start small with the potential to scale up to improve larger systems across the region.

How to Submit a Change Idea:

Define the Issue You Want to Solve

Identify a Team

Who needs to be involved? What teachers or staff are closest to the work?

Change Idea Review Process:
