What is a Regional Achievement Collaborative

Launched by Chief Education Office for the State of Oregon in 2013, the Regional Achievement Collaborative (RAC) initiative forges connections between schools, community organizations, businesses and local leaders to drive communities to actively support improving education outcomes beyond the classroom.  RAC members work with their community to review local achievement data, identify underlying problems that impede education and focus on collective impact strategies to boost educational outcomes.  All RACs across the State follow a student-centered equity model to meet Oregon’s goal that 40% of students graduate college, 40% obtain an AA, and the remaining 20% complete high school.
