TAKING INITIATIVE

The Chalkboard Project

Chalkboard Project is a nonprofit organization founded by Meyer and other regional foundations to improve Oregon's public education system. For more than a decade, Chalkboard has helped to improve student outcomes through innovative pilot projects that have amplified the voices of teachers and students, built greater accountability through data and research, and advocated for significant legislation to increase the effectiveness and diversity of our educator workforce. 

In its next chapter, Chalkboard is focused on deepening partnerships, centering communities and using our unique policy and system expertise to accelerate progress for children and families.
