Growth –

The Beaverton School District includes 34 elementary schools, nine middle schools, six high schools, five option schools, 19 option programs and two charter schools. We have more than 39,000 students and nearly 4,500 staff members.
The Beaverton School Board has seven elected community members who serve four-year terms.  They are volunteers. Though candidates are nominated from the Board Zone they live in, voters in the District elect them at-large.  Each Board member has several school assignments that may or may not be in their zone. 
Beaverton School District supports current employees — whether they're support (classified) or licensed staff — who want to further their careers as educators.
Bilingual Teacher Pathway: The Bilingual Teacher Pathway (BTP) program is an educator preparation program through Portland State University. This program prepares current bilingual/bicultural individuals who aspire to be licensed elementary teachers. Prospective students can apply to the program at either the undergraduate or graduate level.  
Rise to Teach: Rise to Teach is a tuition-supported pathway to become an educator. This program has a special focus on developing a college and career pathway for racially/ethnically diverse students who have been historically underrepresented in Oregon’s teacher workforce. Students begin at Portland Community College (PCC) for 2 years, continue to Portland State University for 2 years to complete a bachelor’s degree, and end with one additional year at Portland State to earn a master’s degree and teaching credential to teach at the grade level of their choosing. 
Teach 4 Beaverton: Teach 4 Beaverton is a partnership with Oregon State University’s Clinically Based Elementary Education program. Students can work towards a bachelor’s and master’s degree while earning their teaching credential in elementary education. This program utilizes a two-year, part-time student teaching model to support future educators to maintain employment while completing a degree. 
Lewis & Clark Part-Time Elementary Cohort for School Employees:  BSD partners with Lewis & Clark College in this equity-based Master’s in Teaching program for those aspiring to be elementary educators. This cohort-based program is specifically designed for current classified employees who work in BSD. Through this partnership, current support (classified) staff members maintain employment in the district while completing the two-year part-time master’s program.  
Special Education: For individuals who are interested in becoming a teacher for Special Education, BSD partners with Pacific University’s Master of Arts in Teaching Special Education program. This program utilizes an internship model for the completion of the student teaching portion of the program. 
Diverse Educator Pathway (DEP) – This is a Grow Your Own (GYO) grant in partnership with Northwest Regional Education Service District (NWRESD). This program provides coaching, guidance and support utilizing the cohort model for current high school students and recent graduates who are looking to join the education profession. 
TeacherConnect – This Grow Your Own (GYO) grant supports Beaverton community members, former students and current classified staff members who are culturally and/or linguistically diverse though financial support, personalized advising and affinity mentoring. 
Oregon Teacher Scholars Program (OTSP) – The Oregon Teacher Scholar Program offers a scholarship of $10,000 per school year for ethnically diverse or heritage speakers of a language other than English. The program serves undergraduate students who are in the final two years of a teaching program or education major and graduate students enrolled in an Oregon TSPC-approved educator preparation program. Scholarship recipients may be eligible for a second year of funding ($10,000), depending on funding availability.
BSD provides practicum and student teaching placements to programs outside of our direct partnerships. Use the Choose Local resource developed by the Oregon Pre-service Education Network (OPEN) to help find the education program that best fits your needs.
If you would like the opportunity to complete a practicum or student teaching placement in Beaverton School District, please have a representative from your college or university program reach out to Stephanie Herb, University Partnership Liaison in Human Resources, to begin the placement request process at [email protected]
All  Beaverton School District employees are provided tuition reimbursement up to 12 quarters (or 8 semesters) of college credits per three-year cycle. The benefit can be used at any time over this period and is renewed every three years while working in the district. This benefit can be used for credited courses applied to an advanced degree or certification; graduate, undergraduate, or Community College courses; workshops or conferences. Rules and considerations vary depending on the employee's contract.
We strongly encourage current BSD students with an interest in education to return to the district as valued staff members.
As part of Career Technical Education (CTE), BSD offers options for exploring a future career in education at Aloha and Beaverton High Schools and a career in early education at Westview High School. Learn more on our CTE webpage.

BSD has a robust mentoring program for any newly hired licensed teacher. The mission of the mentor team is to provide high quality, equity-driven instruction for students by supporting the professional growth and personal well-being of teachers.
In addition to a mentoring program, BSD offers affinity support opportunities to newly hired educators of color through the use of a peer support network.
BSD’s Teaching & Learning Department provides professional development centered around curriculum, instruction and assessment. It focuses on using best practices for instruction, learning targets/standards, understanding the application and use of board-adopted materials, understanding the use of supplemental materials, and using assessment practices so that students have both access and opportunity to learn. 
In partnership with Beaverton School District, Lewis & Clark College offers a six-term program for aspiring administrators. The purpose of this partnership is to create a diverse cohort of aspiring educational leaders who represent a wide array of backgrounds and experiences and are prepared with the knowledge and skills to reflect critically upon, inquire into and collaboratively improve schools in ways that will best serve the future growth and success of students, staff and communities. 
Being an equity-driven program means that in every course, text and assignment, students center discussions on identifying systemic inequalities that exist in school systems to develop leadership approaches and skills that disrupt the status quo, make structural disparities visible and create fairness in opportunities and outcomes for students, families and communities across the P-20 spectrum.
The Oregon Administrator Scholar’s Program (OASP) offers scholarships up to a maximum of $10,000 for racially or linguistically diverse administrator candidates accepted and enrolled in an approved administrator program. The scholarships may be used to pay for classes, fees and related costs.
The Beaverton School District is committed to providing all employees with appropriate and regular professional development to help employees either grow in their current roles or acquire new skills for future roles.
