Oregon Statutes - Chapter 336 - Conduct of Schools Generally - Section 336.510 - Legislative findings; direction to Department of Education.

The Legislative Assembly finds that the community school is an expression of the philosophy that the local school is most effective when it involves the people of that community in programs designed to fulfill their needs and interests while increasing the community’s use of personnel, buildings, equipment and other public educational resources. Accordingly, the Department of Education is directed to:

(1) Provide state leadership for community school development;

(2) Assist in the establishment, maintenance and expansion of community schools;

(3) Serve as the state administrative agency for federal community school funding; and

(4) Foster coordination of community school services provided by local schools, community colleges, education service districts, community college service districts and other public and private agencies to avoid unnecessary duplication. [1981 c.259 §2]
