The Oregon Environmental Literacy Task Force was created when House Bill 2544 (2009 Session) was signed into law.
House Bill 2544, also known as the “No Child Left Inside Act,” created the eleven-member Oregon Environmental Literacy Task Force. The Task Force is charged with developing the Oregon Environmental Literacy Plan and reporting back to the Legislature by October 1, 2010.
As part of the Oregon Environmental Literacy Plan, the Task Force is charged with several tasks, including:
- Preparing students to understand and address the major environmental challenges facing Oregon and the United States;
The Legislature directed the Oregon Environmental Literacy Plan to identify:
1. Academic content standards;
2. The relationship of the plan to high school diploma requirements;
3. How environmental literacy will be measured;
4. Professional development program options;
5. A plan for implementation; and
6. How to partner with Oregon public schools.
