After 42 years of public service in Oregon education, Nancy Golden is stepping down from the post of Chief Education officer. She has held the title since August 2013.

As Chief Education Officer, Dr. Golden identified impediments to student success and was at the forefront of conversations and action to address those issues. She was integrally involved in the adoption of the Equity Lens and it application to policy and budget decision-making across the state. She worked with educators to recommend a more balanced assessment system to support teachers and students. 

Golden's work will inform Governor Kate Brown's continuing efforts to ensure  every Oregonian has access to a high-quality education. Governor Brown is committed to promoting student success and readiness to learn. This includes expanding access to learning opportunities that help prepare students for life and career, increasing rates of student completion, and ensuring more Oregonians have access to college. 

During the interim, Lindsey Capps will serve as the acting Chief Education Officer. Capps will continue to serve as a policy advisor to Governor Brown, and she previously served as Dr. Golden's chief of staff.
