Founded in 1946, OSBA is governed by a member-elected board and serves K-12 public school boards, education service district boards, community college boards and the State Board of Education. Through legislative advocacy at state and federal levels, board leadership training, employee management assistance and policy, communications, legal and financial services, OSBA helps locally elected volunteers fulfill their complex public education roles.

OSBA is dedicated to improving student success and education equity through advocacy, leadership and service to Oregon public school boards.
Call for equity
Education equity ensures:
- All students are accepted as their authentic selves, are heard and valued, feel they belong, and achieve high academic and personal standards that empower them to thrive.
- Student success will not be predicted nor predetermined by race, ethnicity, family economics, location, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability status, religion, culture or any other identity.
Public school boards have unique insights on how to address education equity and systems change in their districts. OSBA is committed to supporting boards in their just and fair distribution of resources based upon each student’s needs.
