Learning Support Services
Learning Support Services focuses on improving achievement for all students within our community, through providing high quality professional development, technical assistance, and instructional-based support for educators in 16 Lane County School Districts.
Focus – Student Achievement for All Students
Lane ESD supports evidence-based school improvement and instructional practices that are proven to have the highest impact on student achievement and learning, with emphasis on providing an “equity lens” supporting appropriate differentiated instruction for all students.
Support in Core Content
Services are provided to educators at all levels from kindergarten through graduation, in all core content areas, and can be designed to meet the collective needs of all districts or differentiated to meet individual district needs.
Enhanced Services through Collaboration and Shared Services
Collaboration with state, regional and local agencies and programs enhances and expands the services available to local districts. Examples include participation in ODE’s statewide DATA Project and our numerous collaborative efforts with the University of Oregon and Lane Community College.
In addition to services in the core content areas, Learning Support Services also provides training, assistance and coaching in school-wide behavior and interventions, assistance in meeting federal and state requirements, and Title Services (Indian Education, Migrant Education, English Language Learners and McKinney-Vento Homeless).
Several programs provide direct student services. Examples include including summer school and after school programs, youth leadership groups, model lessons, outdoor education, spelling contests and science fairs.
Learning Support Services collaborates with local districts, higher education and other agencies to provide leadership and support in pursuing and administering grants for the benefit of Lane County’s schools and students.
