Welcome to the OACTE website
The Oregon Association of Colleges for Teacher Education is a collaborative committed to excellence in teacher preparation. The membership is composed of public and private colleges and universities and is the state affiliate of the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education (AACTE). This website is designed to provide information about activities of the association, archive documents of mutual interest, and serve as a general communication tool for this robust organization.
OACTE is pleased to make available results from the Ready for the Classroom survey project designed to understand the preparation experiences of early career teachers in Oregon and perceptions of the readiness of these early career teachers as rated by their employing principals. OACTE is proud of the results of the Ready for the Classroom project as, overwhelmingly, Oregon teachers are viewed as well-prepared and are satisfied with their preparation experiences.
