Virtual e-Learning is the separation of student and teacher by space and/or time and the learning process is facilitated by the utilization of electronic tools such as computers, the Internet, and interactive video-conferencing (IVC) technologies.

Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory (NWREL)
Providing research and development assistance to education, government, community agencies, business, and labor. Numerous resources available for educators, policy makers, parents, and the public.

Oregon Gear Up
Providing meaningful academic enrichment activities that result in school improvement. The goal is to ensure that Oregon's low-income middle school and high school students are prepared for, pursue, and succeed in post secondary education. Most of the program activities are generated by staff in the middle and high schools. The activities are designed to enhance student academic development, teacher and counselor professional development, community involvement, and school/college outreach and partnerships.

Educational Tours & Trips

Butte Creek Mill
Eagle Point - Southern Oregon

On the National Register of Historic Places, the world famous Butte Creek Mill is the only grist mill in Oregon still grinding flour. Built on the banks of Little Butte Creek in 1872, local farmers would bring their wheat to the mill, their wagons lining the road for miles.

Today, hundreds of Rogue Valley school children come through the mill each year for field trips and hands on learning. Children will leave the mill with more knowledge in American History, Science & Technology, Nutrition & Ecology.
